The Amazon jobs that are currently listed (seasonal) are legitimate work from home jobs. I had worked for them last year and got hired on as a reserve customer service agent. There is no need for a landline phone and I never had to speak with anyone! I did everything online even the hiring event which was basically “you’re hired” was online. All paperwork was completed online with the exception of the I-9 and they actually set all that up to. The training is self paced and you get to decide how many hours you spend doing the training. Great job!


Thank you so much for the post about Amazon work from home positions! I was afraid I was not going to be able to work for them due to the full time schedule they sent to me; however, I received a phone call on Sunday offering me a permanent part time position! I did not have to drive the two hours to the Amazon facilities – they actually allowed me to have the forms notarized and scanned to them. It was such a blessing and I’m so thankful for your post!

    If you work from home and all work is done via computer or phone, then why does it matter what state you are in?

    • libby

      Taxes, kickbacks from the government to provide jobs to certain areas… Could be any number of things.

    • Sparkle

      Even though you work from home, companies still have to follow the states employment laws. Some states are a lot stricter (California) than others.

    Hmm wondering if .CA isn’t on there since minimum is 10.50 here

    • kharrington

      I agree I’m in the same boat with living in VT. My daughter goes to school in LA and they have one of the lowest min. wage! Sure enough they are on the list!

  3. Abby

    Has anyone done this? I’m wondering if they have anything part time or if it’s full time only. I’m due in December, so I’m looking for something to do on the side.

    • Ellen

      Wondering this as well. I work full-time, but wouldn’t mind having a little part-time Amazon job here and there.

    • Caitlin Holmes

      If it says full time they mean full time and are super strict about schedules I got an offer last year but since you are not allowed to leave the computer til lunch I wasn’t even able to walk my child to the bus stop at the end of our block. But they do once in a while hire flex reserves or part time positions

    These are those moments it can drive you nuts to live in Kansas City, when you live on one side of the state line, and something is going on in the other state, which is mere minutes away. 😭😀 I live and work in MO but actually run my lunchtime errands in KS because it’s closer to work.

    • Kate

      Yes! What a pain!
      And if you live on the Kansas side, you have to drive to Missouri side on Sunday for beer. 😭

    I signed up for this last year and went through the training, but the hours didn’t work for my schedule. If you want a job where you have a set time every week on certain days where you work at home in front of a computer, go for it! I just didn’t have the time like I thought I would. Since I’m in college, I ended up working at my Kohl’s as a seasonal associate back at home and it was wonderful!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks so much for sharing your experience Melissa! Good to know!

    Thanks.

      If you live in one of the state’s listed, you can apply with Amazon. Holiday season offers many at home CSR, Voice/Tech support jobs, as well as on location jobs. This site isn’t an applicant site.
      Good luck.

    I got hired a few years ago for this. The training schedule was different than my work schedule so I was unable to do it because I didn’t have childcare for the training. I did complete half of the training. It’s pretty strenuous. They are strict about being at your computer. You can only step away for your scheduled lunches. You have to have a noise free area to work in. If you are looking for work at home not a bad gig.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks for your feedback Emily!

    I did this job last year and it was pretty good for me. We did 2 weeks of training online on our own pace and daily meeting with our training manager. She also did live sessions and one on one phone calls once a week to check with us. After our 2 week training we did take some calls at the level 1 retail generalist level which was basically reshipping, refunding, and changing some basic customer info. We trained for 2 more weeks online and then went live.

    The training schedule I chose was the same as my work schedule. I picked Monday through Friday from 9am to 6pm. It was a 9 hour shift, however, I got to take a 15 minute break in the morning, a half hour lunch, and a 15 minute break in the evenings. We are also given 20 minutes of “free time” to use during the week. You can use it 5 minutes at a time, or space it out however you like. Another poster mentioned to bus stop — you can put yourself into the me-time for 5 minutes and if you run over, it’s not biggie, really. They do watch the metrics if you’re interested in conversion which means staying on after the holiday. They also have the ability to request time off in 30 minute blocks so you can log in, schedule off 30 minutes out of your shift without any punishment other than not getting paid, and then get back to it. I did this in a full week block once when we took vacation.

    I was paid $10 an hour for the training and after that, $11 for the holiday season. I was given a full 40 hours every single week and often able to pick up a full 20 hour of overtime. We were given tons of OT opportunity and double time on holidays. Thanksgiving was given off to my group, as was Christmas because we were level 1 & 2 associates. The specialists handled holidays and I’m sure they were paid nicely. When I received a Jury Duty summons, they even paid me for the few days I missed during jury duty summons/court!!!

    Payday was on time and in my account often the night before. Never had any issues whatsoever. Getting into the rhythm was tricky. I applied again this year. Hopeful they pick me again! I could sure use the down time at home. You do need a separate space away from kids. They really mean it when they say you can’t have this job as a “stay at home parent” because you’re on the phone all the time and customers don’t want to be interrupted or hear those things in the background. Once my cat meowed loudly but the customer laughed. I shut the door after that. They want you to have child care if you do this from home with kids because you truly can’t just get up and go handle things. I’m sure there are other jobs that would work better for stay at home moms and dads.

    I’m not a parent, other than my furballs so that’s all I had to take care of. I could cook dinner on my half hour lunch break and meal prep and such. It was a pretty good job and after 90 days, you can apply for insurance and benefits. We started Oct 2nd last year and I stayed on until Feb 4th. It wasn’t unusual with OT and holiday to bring home close to $700 after tax each week.

    I digress… but I was happy for the job and work although some days 0_o

    I wanted to add too — they have the option to apply to the email and chat team but those are hard to get. You can also apply to the part time team — which means you schedule work in 30 minute blocks up to 20 hours each week or 40 during the holiday (I believe more if you want). Those folks got to log in whenever they wanted and schedule little half hour blocks of work for $5 for the half hour or $5.50 when it was after training. Not too bad, really.

    So I’m going to be in court Nov 13 , will I still get paid as a witness?
