Hall Amazon needs several hundred additional employees in Germany in the corona virus crisis. In order to meet the demand of people, 350 additional full-time and part-time jobs in logistics are planned, an Amazon spokesman confirmed on Thursday. The 350 new jobs would be created nationwide and the number could not be broken down into individual locations. The “Mitteldeutsche Zeitung” had previously reported on the job creation.

In the United States, Amazon announced the creation of 100,000 full-time and part-time jobs in logistics centers and the delivery network ten days ago. In addition, hourly wages were raised by two US dollars in the USA and two euros in euro countries by the end of April. In Germany it is at least EUR 11.10 gross. At that time, Amazon estimated $ 350 million worldwide for this wage increase.

Since this week, important everyday goods in Germany have been prioritized not only in the incoming goods department at the Amazon logistics centers, but also when shipping to customers, as a spokesman for the “Mitteldeutsche Zeitung” said. In France and Italy, meanwhile, Amazon no longer accepts orders for some items that are not important for everyday life. This also has to do with the fact that the employees in the distribution centers keep more distance from each other in order to reduce the risk of infection, it said at the weekend.
