Nearly 60 percent of U.S. shoppers report purchasing $100 worth of goods online per month, according to Pennsylvania-based fulfillment company Radial.
To get ahead of the holiday rush, Radial will be hiring 930 seasonal workers at its Burlington fulfillment facility.
There are now more than one million workers fulfilling online orders in U.S. warehouses, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s an 87 percent increase in available warehouse fulfillment jobs since 2009, according to BLS.
In an increasingly ambitious space, seasonal Radial workers receive competitive hourly wages, opportunities for overtime, and on-the-job training, according to a company release. The Burlington center also provides regular giveaways, free holiday meals and events for workers.
“Our team of fulfillment associates works behind the scenes to ensure every order runs seamlessly, even during the busy holiday season,” said Andrea Crawford, senior manager of Radial’s contingent labor program, in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be creating so many additional jobs in Burlington and are excited to welcome back the seasonal workers who return each year.”
Seasonal workers will have the opportunity to speak with their direct supervisor about permanent full-time opportunities.
