The effects of the Coronavirus are starting to show up everywhere and today's jobs report showed that 3.3 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits as a matter of fact these are the worst jobless claims data in history. Personally I've had friends who have lost jobs in the last week due to the economic ramifications of COVID-19. The good news is that there are several companies that are actually hiring through all of this madness. Here is a list I found on ktvb that includes potential places of employment in the Treasure Valley.


Albertsons is hiring in-store employees and workers. According to their website, the grocery chain had 98 openings in Idaho as of Thursday. Some of the positions included grocery clerks, delivery drivers, warehouse clerk and driver, meat cutters, cake decorators and numerous managerial jobs. There were 70 jobs available within 20 miles of Boise.


According to KING 5 in Seattle, Amazon announced changes to its supply chain amidst a sharp increase in online orders. Shipping on non-essential items will be prioritized lower than items like food and cleaning supplies and the company is currently in the process of hiring 100,000 delivery drivers, warehouse workers and grocery shoppers. The average pay is $17 an hour through April. Employees do receive benefits.

Other services include PostmatesUberEats, and GrubHub.
