Sort it. Wrap it. Ship it. Own it. Sounds a little like a game, but it’s Amazon’s game – that is if you’re in one of our high-speed, high-tech sortation centers. Ready to play, join the team today! Amazon is looking for Part-Time Associates to join the team at our sortation center in Buffalo, NY.

Things you should know about working in an Amazon Sortation center:
•Safety, it’s more than wearing a reflective vest. We’re committed to providing one of the safest work environments, which means stretching, safety tips, and yes… following the rules.
• Customer-obsession. It makes your day to make someone else happy.
• Quality is key. You have high standards, and it shows in your work. We’ll hold you to it, but only because we know our associates can handle it.
• Can you hear me now? Noise level varies and can sometimes be loud.
• Cool with Casual. A relaxed dress code means it’s Casual Friday, every day.
• We like to keep you on your toes, associates will rotate tasks multiple times throughout the week.
• Amazon lets customers order whatever they need, whenever they need. Flexibility is key, associates should be open to extra hours, time off, and a rapid pace.
• Temperature in the sort center may vary between 60 and 90 degrees, and will occasionally exceed 90 degrees.

Got it? Okay, but what will you actually be doing?
• Sorting packages based on size and destination, it can be a little like Tetris with boxes, envelopes and pallets.
• Pumped up kicks. You’ll stand in one place for extended periods of time, and be walking a good distance around the facility – good shoes are a must!
• Building pallets, wrapping pallets, transporting pallets with pallet jack, and sorting packages and pallets. Did someone say pallets?
• All hands on deck! You can expect to handle packages from small envelopes to boxes ranging up to 49 pounds.
• On the move – you should be willing and able to operate carts, dollies, hand trucks and other moving equipment to move large quantities of merchandise.
• Potential opportunity to operate PIT equipment, special training is offered to associates based on interest and availability.
• ‘Round we go. Associates will be manually wrapping finished pallets, which means moving in a sideways, circular motion several times in a row. You’ve got your head on straight, we think you can handle it.

Hourly Pay Rate: $11.25

Let’s sweeten the deal…
• Weekly pay schedule
• Holiday overtime pay
• Basic Life, AD&D insurance after 30 days
• On-the-job training and skill development
• Employee Assistance Program

We want you to join the team if you can check these boxes:
• Blown out the candles – you are at least 18 years old.
• Flex, not just your muscles – you don’t mind a curve ball every once in a while and you can be flexible in responsibilities.
• You are willing and able to work extra hours as required – bringing smiles to our customers doesn’t take time off.
• Let’s get physical – associates must, with or without reasonable accommodation, be able to lift up to 49 pounds, stand/walk for up to 10-12 hours, and be able to frequently push, pull, squat, bend, and reach
• Step it up – be able to continuously climb and descend stairs safely (applies to sites with stairs)
• Must be able to work on a secure mezzanine at a height of up to 40 feet (applies to buildings with mezzanines)
• Must be willing and able to work on powered equipment-for example forklift or cherry picker

Basic Qualifications (because compliance asked us nicely to list these out…)
• Must be at least 18 years old
• English literacy skills

If you’ve read this far, we think you’re ready. Agree? Apply now!
