Amazon is looking to hire thousands and pay an average salary of $18 an hour.

With the holidays right around the corner, this might be a gig worth considering.

Amazon officials on Tuesday revealed they're looking to fill another 125,000 open positions, many of which will pay an average of $18 an hour -- $3 more than the company's average starting pay of $15 an hour.

These jobs are in addition to the 40,000 openings the company advertised earlier this month, a spokesman says.

Amazon has opened more than 250 fulfillment centers this year with plans to open 100 more later this month. Since the pandemic began, it's hired 450,000 U.S. workers.
