Are you looking for a part-time job in a flexible working environment that allows you to work from home? Or perhaps you’re looking for a seasonal gig that will allow you to sock away some money for holiday shopping?

If that sounds like you, Amazon is hiring remote customer service associates in its new “Reserves Program,” which the e-commerce giant says is responsible for “swiftly” responding to “spikes in customer need.”

  • Arizona

  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • North Carolina
  • North Dakota

  • Tennessee
  • Washington
  • West Virginia
  • Wisconsin
  • Virginia

According to the job description, you’ll earn $10 an hour if you’re hired. You’ll work from home, receive paid training and have the flexibility to choose your work hours.

Amazon says its work-from-home customer service associates in the Reserves Program can choose to work between one and 30 hours each week, although the average employee will work about 12 hours a week.

The Seattle-based online retailer also included this warning in its job description:

Working hours will increase during our peak season (November through January), and you may be required to work between 20 and 40 hours per week during this time. You may also be required to work on any/all major holidays.
