Looking for a job? Amazon eyes 125,000 more hires, $18+ per hour average salary

Amazon is looking to offer an average starting wage of more than $18 per hour to fill some transportation and fulfillment roles, with some of the positions receiving up to $22.50 hourly.
The wages are being offered so Amazon can try to fill an additional 125,000 local jobs throughout the U.S., on top of the 40,000 corporate and technology jobs it announced earlier this month.
Another 8,700 workers will be hired at fulfillment centers in New Jersey. The company is hosting a national career day later today. 
There’s also sign-on bonuses of up to $3,000 available in certain locations.
The company currently employs around 35,000 people in the state.
