Amazon High Volume Hiring


Part-Time Seasonal Sortation Associate

Hillsboro, OR

Job ID: 170009207

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 PDX5. 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: $X12.50 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:

    Thrown your cap in the air – you have a High School diploma or equivalent.
    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.
    Diversity is awesome! But associates must be able to read and take direction in English.
    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
    Have obtained a high school diploma or equivalent
