Amazon.com Inc. (Seattle) is planning to hire 125,000 workers for its fulfillment and transportation divisions, according to Fortune. If the company can fill these roles, in addition to the 40,000 corporate and tech jobs it announced two weeks ago, it would set Amazon up to exceed one million employees.

This year alone, Amazon has opened 250 new delivery stations, air hubs and fulfillment centers, with more planned for next year. With these growing numbers, Amazon has reportedly become the largest job creator in the U.S.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
