As Amazon rapidly expands (and pulls out all the stops to stay ahead of the competition), so does the need for employees to run the instant-gratification machine that is this online sales giant.

So surprise, surprise — Amazon is hiring once again.

The company is looking for part-time, work-from-home customer service associates to promptly assist customers during nights and weekends.

To apply for this position, you must be located in one of these states: Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, Wisconsin or Virginia.

A Work-From-Home Job with a Flexible Schedule

The job is hourly and pays $10 per hour, with the opportunity to work up to 40 hours per week.

After a period of paid training (you’ll select your training schedule and self-direct the process), you’ll join the nights and weekends Reserves Program.

Then you’ll be able to claim your own hours from a weekly online scheduling portal.

Core hours will generally be on weekdays from 2:30 p.m. to midnight Pacific Standard Time and on weekends from 7 a.m. to midnight Pacific Standard Time.

From now through the fall, you’ll have to opportunity to log anywhere from one to 40  hours of work each week, although most of the Reserves choose to work an average of 12 hours.

During periods of high call volume, you may be required to work between 20 and 40 hours each week, and on holidays.

Are You Qualified for This Work-From-Home Customer Service Job?

Once you are approved to begin working, the company will send you a headset to the address provided during the application process.

It will be up to you to ensure that your computer meets some pretty standard requirements (you can check out the original job listing for more details), but if you’re using a laptop, you’ll need an external monitor, keyboard and mouse.

To be considered for this position, you’ll need at least a high school diploma or equivalent, English language proficiency, typing, phone and some pretty general computer literacy, and the ability to work in a quiet home environment.

Bonus points if you have a history in customer-centric jobs and working in a self-directed remote situation.

While benefits may vary by location and position, you can find the usual benefits for part-time U.S. based employees here.
