Amazon Pulls a Page From Brick & Mortar Retailers' Playbooks

Holiday shopping (hiring) season is already upon us.

Holiday shopping (hiring) season is already upon us. Macy's recently announced plans to bring even more temporary help on board than it did last year, but Amazon's need for temp help far outstrips even that of the holiday shopping mainstay. Amazon is reportedly looking to bring on 80,000 hired holiday hands to get it through this Black Thursday, and more, as online orders are expected to keep increasing, putting pressure on shipping lines. With no drones lined up yet, Amazon is adding staff, and launching brick-and-mortar outlets of its own, too, in select cities on both coasts.
