To prepare for Cyber Monday and the holiday season, Amazon.com has hired 50,000 additional employees to work across 40 fulfillment centers across the country.
Last year Amazon sold over 200 items per second on Cyber Monday. They are expecting this year to be their biggest yet.
Amazon.com’s holiday sales are already up to 40% over last year. Jeff Bezos for the win!
