LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Amazon is looking to hire over 1,000 employees in Nevada to help keep up with the growing demand of orders as the coronvirus spreads.
Amazon on Monday announced that the company was seeking to hire 100,000 people across the country to keep up with orders.
According to a spokesperson for Amazon, the company is looking to hire more than 1,400 full- and part-time positions in Nevada.
Amazon said it will also temporarily raise pay by $2 an hour through the end of April for hourly employees. That includes workers at its warehouses, delivery centers and Whole Foods grocery stores, all of whom make at least $15 an hour, according to the Associated Press.
Due to the increase of orders, Amazon has warned shoppers that it could take longer than the usual two days to get packages. The company also said it was sold out of many household cleaning supplies and is working to get more in stock.
