Ahead of its Great Indian Festival sale, Ecommerce giant Amazon India said it has created over 100,000 seasonal jobs across various cities including Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore, among others.

The company said has already brought most of these new hires into its existing network to efficiently manage tasks such as picking, packing, and delivering customer orders during the sale, which begins on October 8, with early access for Prime customers starting October 7.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to Amazon's commitment to delivering exceptional service to customers. The work environment and facilities, with a particular focus on everyone’s health and safety, are truly commendable,” said Selim S K, a recent seasonal hire at Amazon India.

In addition to roles in operations, the new hires also include customer service associates, including those who are part of the virtual customer service model, which is designed to enhance customer experience.
