Seattle-based company, Amazon, announced the opening of 2,000 new on-site and virtual job positions in Costa Rica.
The new employees will reinforce the world-class service that Amazon provides its clients around the world in English, Portuguese and Spanish, as well as the 24/7 service for countries in North America, South America, and Europe.
“The customer service operation in Costa Rica opened in 2008 with 75 employees," Alejandro Filloy, Customer Service Director for Latin America said. "Today we have more than 15,000 specialized employees who offer the world-class service that characterizes Amazon.”
The on-site positions are located at its main headquarters in the provinces of Heredia and San José. The remote virtual positions will be offered to qualifying candidates living anywhere throughout the nation. These positions include customer service agents, team managers at various levels, and operations managers.
Amazon is offering competitive salaries and a full package of additional benefits. In addition to the benefits stipulated by law, this includes private medical and dental service from day one. The company also offers extended maternity and paternity leave, as well as an excellent job environment with opportunities for growth and professional development. People interested in applying should visit the Amazon Jobs site.
Also yesterday, another U.S. company, Intel, announced an investing of $600 million for its expansion of their operations in Costa Rica.
Although Intel has several job openings, there are other corporations hiring as well and Costa Rica remains with a 17.7% unemployment rate, according to the National Employment Survey. The survey reveals that there are approximately more than 430,500 people without registered jobs in the country from March to May 2021.
