If you own an RV and are looking for a seasonal job, the Amazon Camperforce program might be for you.
Amazon offers the program only during the busy winter shipping season. When the orders flood in during the fall, the company needs to beef up its packing, stowing, and receiving workforce for about three months – from October through December 23rd.
Have an RV? Looking for work? Amazon’s Camperforce program may fit your lifestyle.
The program accepts workers at one of three facilities located in Kentucky, Texas, and Tennessee.

Expect to be on your feet a lot – and to walk a lot! You could be walking up to a dozen miles every day if you’re part of the picking crew, for example.
