AMAZON TO HIRE VERMONTERS FOR VIRTUAL CUSTOMER SERVICE PROGRAM
Montpelier, Vt. – Online-retailer Amazon has announced plans to begin hiring several dozen Vermonters later this year for new part-time positions in Virtual Customer Service, a program that offers flexible work-from-home arrangements for customer service agents.
“Growing Vermont’s workforce and supporting all of Vermont’s 251 communities is a top priority for my administration,” said Governor Phil Scott. “As we work together to make employment and training opportunities available to all Vermonters, I’m encouraged to know that global technology leaders like Amazon see the value Vermont workers bring to the table.”
While these virtual positions are available across the country, Amazon does not yet employ any Vermonters for these flexible, remote positions. The positions offer competitive wages and benefits and provide alternative employment opportunities for rural Vermonters.
“Vermont’s high quality of life, workforce and innovative programs for attracting remote workers make it a great place for us to hire Amazon Virtual Customer Service Associates,” said Ardine Williams, Amazon’s Vice President of Human Resources for Worldwide Operations. “These will be great opportunities for those Vermonters who want or need a flexible job - whether they’re college students, military spouses, parents, or retirees.”
