Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is hiring 100,000 full and part-time employees across the U.S. and Canada to help pack, ship or sort orders, marking the e-commerce behemoth’s fourth hiring spree this year.

The company already had to hire 175,000 people earlier this year to keep up with the rush of orders, and last week said it had 33,000 corporate and tech jobs it needed to fill.

It also plans to open 100 new operations buildings in September across fulfillment centers, delivery stations, sorting centers and other sites. The new jobs include benefits and sign-on bonuses of as much as $1,000 in select cities, as well as starting wages of at least $15 an hour.

Amazon shares have surged almost 70% this year, lifting its market value to $1.56T, as the company’s online shopping services became vital to many households during the Covid-19 pandemic.
