E-commerce giant Amazon.com Inc. said it aims to increase seasonal hiring by 25 percent across its network of distribution centers in the United States, even as rival retailers remained cautious, holding temporary hiring at last year levels. Amazon said it would hire 100,000 seasonal employees, up from 80,000 last year.
The Seattle-based retailer has hired more than 25,000 full-time employees since August to prepare for the 2015 holiday season, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
