Amazon.com Inc said on Thursday it would hire 150,000 employees in full-time, seasonal and part-time roles across its operations in the United States ahead of the upcoming holiday season. The world's largest online retailer, which hired the same number of workers last year September, said the new roles are for packing, picking, sorting and shipping orders, and the workers will be eligible for a sign-on bonus of up to $3,000 in some locations. Amazon raised its average hourly pay to more than $19 last week, compared with $18 offered last year.
