Amazon is hiring 120,000 seasonal workers in 27 states and Penny Hoarder has an article all about it. We have a new fulfillment center right over the border in WI. It's about 20 minutes away. Wanna know a secret? These jobs aren't all they are cracked up to be. Don't get me wrong, if you need a seasonal/part-time gig, try there just don't expect much. They put these poor suckers on 3 hour days, up to 7 days a week. Then they have them on-call for the entire season. They go in for a few hours, drive home(the plant isn't in a heavy populated area.) and then get called back in if there is more work. The closer to Christmas they get, the more hours they can have but can't get full-time hours.
The people making the real money are the surrounding houses that rent out rooms to them. It's too expensive to keep driving back and forth so they find a cheap room to rent. Doesn't that seem like it would negate working there?
Have you ever worked a seasonal job? Have you ever worked a crap job? I worked at Kirby in high school, it was misery. Have you ever rented out a room? Have you ever found a way to profit off of your location?
