Amazon to Hire 150,000 Workers Before Holiday Season

Amazon Inc. plans to hire 150,000 people in its regular annual hiring spree to meet demand during the holiday shopping season.

The hiring target Amazon announced Thursday is the same as it had last year and comes as the e-commerce company has been struggling with slower sales. The company is seeking employees throughout its U.S. fulfillment network, which is responsible for sorting, packaging and delivering products.
