Retailer hires for San Antonio warehouse jobs

November 2nd, 2017

Amazon is hiring big this holiday season and may be looking to fill San Antonio warehouse jobs.

The retail giant said it is creating more than 120,000 positions this season across its U.S. network of fulfillment centers, sortation centers and customer service sites. Last year, thousands of holiday positions were transitioned to regular, full-time roles after the holidays and the company expects to continue that trend this year.

“We prepare year round for the holidays and we’re excited to hire for over 120,000 positions this season to help delight our customers,” saidDave Clark, Amazon Senior Vice President of Global Customer Fulfillment. “We look forward to welcoming back holiday employees who return year-after-year to Amazon and welcome new faces to the team, many of whom will continue on with regular, full-time roles with the company after the holidays.”

New employees will join the more than 125,000 regular, full-time employees at Amazon’s more than 75 fulfillment centers across the country to help pick, pack and ship customers’ holiday orders. So far this year, Amazon has created tens of thousands of new full-time roles in its fulfillment and customer service centers. Throughout the year on average, 90 percent of associates across the company’s U.S. fulfillment network are regular, full-time employees.

In addition to competitive wages, Amazon provides employees with competitive pay, health insurance, disability insurance, retirement savings plans and company stock. The company also offers up to 20 weeks of paid leave and benefits such as Leave Share and Ramp Back, which give new parents flexibility with their growing families. Leave Share lets employees share their Amazon paid leave with their spouse or domestic partner if their spouse’s employer does not offer paid leave. Ramp Back gives new moms additional control over the pace at which they return to work. Just as with Amazon’s health care plan, these benefits are egalitarian – they are the same for fulfillment center and customer service employees as they are for Amazon’s most senior executives. The hourly fulfillment center employees are eligible for Amazon’s innovative Career Choice program that pre-pays 95 percent of the cost of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether those skills are related to jobs at Amazon.

Apprenticeship programs for San Antonio jobs created

October 5th, 2017

New programs are developing to boost apprenticeship programs for San Antonio jobs.

To assist employers in developing a nationally recognized Registered Apprenticeship program, the Texas Workforce Commission’s (TWC) ApprenticeshipTexas will engage local employers and industry partners in developing new programs and expanding on current Registered Apprenticeship training programs for new occupations and underrepresented populations. Apprenticeship training programs are a combination of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction where workers learn the practice and theoretical aspects of a high-skill occupation.

“Apprenticeship programs provide Texas employers with a skilled workforce and job seekers have the opportunity to bolster their skills,” said TWC Chairman Andres Alcantar. “Apprenticeships are one of several effective educational and training strategies that support a broad range of industry sectors and occupations.”

TWC invites employers, job seekers, educators and industry stakeholders to the first ApprenticeshipTexas conference, to be held at the Drury Plaza Hotel Riverwalk in San Antonio, September 28-29, 2017. The conference will feature information on developing career choices for high school and college apprenticeship programs, along with insights for employers on operating an apprenticeship program. For more information and to register online, visit the TWC website at Events – ApprenticeshipTexas Conference.

TWCs apprenticeship training programs assist business owners with opportunities to teach specific skills so that new employees hired as apprentices can immediately begin to contribute their talents and skills. Apprentices are empowered to be hands-on from day one, while also earning a paycheck and engaging in the workplace. Upon completion of the training program, apprentices receive a national recognized certification and have minimal student debt.

“For participating employers, apprenticeship programs help to build a sustainable and diversified workforce from industry-driven training customized to meet business workforce needs,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Employers Ruth R. Hughs.

Registered Apprenticeship programs can be created for traditional industries, including construction and manufacturing, and emerging professions, such as energy and health care. TWC’s ApprenticeshipTexas team will target industries in high demand fields such as nursing, pipefitting, plumbing, welding, distribution and transportation occupations. ApprenticeshipTexas bridge employers, local community colleges and independent school districts to prepare apprentices for a highly skilled job and life-long careers, boosting the state’s skilled labor force.
