WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Amazon is hanging out the "help wanted" sign for more workers.
The online behemoth is hiring for 50,000 seasonal positions to process orders in their warehouses.
And, the company says thousands of those applicants could end up with long term jobs.
Amazon says full time workers make up to 30 percent more than traditional retail employees.
It joins other major retailers who are boosting their ranks for the holidays.
