Exclusive Premium Statistic

Number of Amazon employees 2007-2017 This statistic represents the combined number of full- and part-time employees of Amazon.com between 2007 and 2017. In 2017, the American multinational e-commerce company, headquartered in Seattle, Washington, employed 566,400 full- and part-time employees. Amazon is the leading e-commerce retailer in the United States with around 178 billion U.S. dollars in 2017 net revenues. A non-exhaustive list of products and services that are sold on Amazon include a variety of electronics, books, cloud infrastructure, apparel, furniture, food, toys, jewelry and more. Around 67 percent of Amazon's global 2016 revenue came from online retail sales of electronics and other products, approximately 17 percent came from retail third-party seller services. Revenue growth remains steady and to meet the company’s ever increasing success, the company maintains an ever increasing number of employees. With its 2017 headcount of 566,000 employee, Amazon has far more employees than Google and its e-commerce competitor eBay. As the holidays approach, online e-commerce retailers must find a way to meet the ever increasing sales volumes. Typically, Amazon meets this holiday demand by adding new employees. During the 2015, holiday season, Amazon plans to hire an additional 100,000 people for the holidays, mostly working in backrooms to help receive and stock deliveries according to the Associated Press.
