Amazon hiring people in 20 states to work from home

If you would like to work from home and are comfortable with talking to people online, you may want to check out a new job listed by Amazon.

Unfortunately the job posting is only for people who live in 20 states, and Texas is not on the list.

The company is looking for customer service associates who will "think outside the box, solve problems, answer questions, and resolve concerns," mostly over the phone, according to the job application.

The position is seasonal to deal with increased demands during the upcoming holidays. The job pays $10 per hour and requires the person to work full-time for up to six months.

Amazon said seasonal employees that do well might be invited to stay with the company for long-term employment.

The application advises one obvious downside: Those in the job might have to work on some or all of the major holidays.

During peak season (Thanksgiving through mid-January), workers may have also need to pick up more hours due to business demands, but the company said associates would work no more than 60 hours a week.

Amazon said it will try to accommodate college students to work around busy school schedules.

If you're interested, you can find job requirements and the application on Amazon's job portal.
