For each week of perfect attendance from Nov. 26 to Dec. 22, seasonal workers will be included in a drawing to win $100,000. On Dec. 22, Amazon will pick a name from all entries and the winner will receive $2,000 plus the chance to choose one of 100 envelopes. One of the envelopes will contain the $100,000 prize.

Seasonal positions included in the promotion are in shipping, picking-and-packing, forklift operations and distribution. Hourly pay rates range between $9.50 and $10, with possible overtime. Employees who choose overnight shifts and/or shuttle service will earn an extra $2 per hour.
