    So, is this a long term position or they just hiring for the time needed till this virus passes (couple months)?

      It looks as though these might be seasonal hires. This line is directly from their post: “We want those people to know we welcome them on our teams until things return to normal and their past employer is able to bring them back.”

      It is a seasonal position and they can end it without notice. You are paid weekly.

    Amazon is always hiring drivers. But expect a waiting list if you live in a medium to large size areas.
