More specifically, this job will have workers handling customer inquiries, resolving problems, being a mediator between internal and external customers and supporting both drivers on-road and customers waiting for shipments. You’ll be a vital employee ensuring that all goes smoothly in the delivery process.

Associates can expect to work on average 20 to 29 hours per week, depending on whether it’s peak season or not, at a pay rate of $12 per hour. Because the customer service at Amazon never stops, employees need to have flexible schedules. Once hired, employees must undergo four weeks of training at a pay rate of $10 per hour.

As long as you fulfill some basic requirements, including a high school diploma, customer service skills, a flexible schedule and solid internet connection (such as cable, DSL or Fiber Optic/FiOS providers), you’re all set to apply. While it’s beneficial to have experience in customer service, it’s not a requirement.
