Amazon now have over 97,000 employees, tripling in size in just three years

Amazon have tripled their employee numbers in three years, now employ over 97,000 people

I knew Amazon were big, but being based in Australia, I never see the true scope of them. Well, reported their quarterly earnings today, disclosing a $7 million loss for the company.




But there was a bright side to this news: they employ over 97,000 people. This includes both full- and part-time employees as of June 30, and is a number that is three times larger than what the company reported in 2010 of just 28,300 employees. This number does not include temporary workers, or contractors.


Amazon's employee count does include workers at their fulfillment centers around the world, so it's not just Americans that we're talking about here. But it's a number that shows just how big Amazon have gotten in the last three years alone.
