Amazon has been at the forefront of creating more jobs for people in the US. It claims to have created over 600,000 jobs in America alone. Coupled with its 876,000 employees worldwide, the company has been doing quite well.


However, it has not been totally spotless. Many of its factories have been plagued with dissatisfaction among workers and threats of strikes. Yet, Amazon claims that it offers highly competitive salaries and full benefits to employees. To apply for a job at Amazon, visit its job forum.
