Amazon (AMZN) plans to hire 5,000 more workers for 17 of its fulfillment centers in the U.S., adding to the 20,000 who already work at the company's warehouses in the country.

Amazon intends to add 2,000 customer-service staff, including part-time and seasonal workers.

The recruitment will help the company meet growing demand and make good on its two-day shipping pledge to Amazon Prime members. (PR)
