Amazon Hiring 13,000 New Workers in DFW for Coming Holiday Crush

The DFW hires will be part of the 250,000 employees the company aims to bring on board throughout the U.S. in full-time, seasonal, and part-time roles across its operations network. Amazon has roughly 20 facilities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and said that more than 28,000 of the new workers will be in Texas.

Logistics and retail giant Amazon announced it plans to hire more than 13,000 employees in Dallas-Fort Worth as part of the 250,000 employees it will bring on board nationwide in full-time, seasonal, and part-time roles across its operations network.

The company has roughly 20 facilities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and said that more than 28,000 of the new hires will be in Texas.

Amazon said the workers will fill a diverse range of roles—from packing and picking to sorting and shipping. The jobs are available to applicants from all backgrounds and experience levels.

“The holiday season is always a special time at Amazon, and we’re excited to hire 250,000 additional people this year to help serve customers across the country,” John Felton, Amazon SVP of Worldwide Operations, said in a statement. “Whether someone is looking for a short-term way to make extra money or is hoping to take their first step toward a fulfilling and rewarding career at Amazon, there’s a role available for them.”

Available jobs

Felton said the jobs should be attractive to job seekers.

“A fulfillment or transportation employee who starts with us today will see a 13% increase in pay over the next three years—likely more, including our annual wage investments—and that’s on top of offerings like pre-paid college tuition with Career Choice and health care benefits on day one,” he said.

Customer fulfillment and transportation employees can earn, on average, more than $20.50 per hour for those roles, and up to $28 depending on location, Amazon said.

Hiring locations and open positions are listed here.

Jobs available in Amazon’s operations network include stowing, picking, packing, sorting, shipping customer orders, and more.

Texas-sized economic impact

This week, Amazon shared its latest investment and economic impact data for Texas from its 2023 Economic Impact Report provided by Keystone Strategy, a third-party consultancy.

Since 2010, Amazon has invested more than $54.1 billion in Texas, including infrastructure and compensation to employees, and has created more than 88,000 direct jobs here.

The company said that those investments support an additional 166,000 indirect jobs across the state, in fields like construction and professional services, and have contributed more than $59.7 billion to the Texas GDP, on top of the company’s direct investments.
