Amazon plans to recruit five thousand permanent employees by the end of this year and open up over 500 new jobs. New positions will be added in various branches of the distribution center in Dobrovíz near Prague and in Dejvice's offices.

The jobs will include full benefits and span engineering roles, logistics, and customer service, among other occupations, the company said. 

The e-commerce giant, according to its spokesperson Miroslava Remenová, has no problems with finding employees and has already exceeded its plan to create four thousand new jobs last year. "I am pleased that the recruitment of new employees in the Czech Republic is progressing faster than we planned," said Karel Foltýn, Amazon's Human Resources Director for Germany, Central, and Eastern Europe.

The hourly wage in entry positions in logistics centers increased by 8 percent to 135 crowns per hour last September, and for shift managers to 180 crowns per hour.
