Today, we're diving into an inspiring story about how a logistics company, a global e-commerce leader, manages a part of its busy seasons by hiring students from around the world.

How it Started

The journey began six months before summer, with students applying for a unique opportunity to work a seasonal job for a logistics company.

Worki's Role

Worki played a crucial role in turning the application into reality for 100 students. From recruiting, to obtaining the documents for the work permits, and visas to ensuring each student has affordable accommodation for their 3 month stay.


The students typically arrive at the logistics company fulfillment centers during peak times like the summer and winter season. From Day 1, the company ensures they settle in comfortably, providing training and guidance to help them adapt to their new work.

3 Day Training

The logistics company training is both thorough and fast-paced. Students are quickly brought up to speed on warehouse operations, learning everything from sorting and packaging to understanding the sophisticated logistics behind the successful delivery system. This training is vital, as it lays the groundwork for their 90 days work period.

Learning and Growing

Throughout their employment, students do more than just learn about warehouse operations. They delve into customer service, logistics, and the digital technologies that are the backbone of logistics company. This real-world experience is invaluable, offering insight into how one of the world's business giants runs things.

A Model for Other Businesses

This approach serves as a successful model for seasonal employment. It demonstrates how Worki's and its partners streamlined recruitment, including handling of work permits, visas, and housing, can lead to a dynamic and adaptable workforce, ready to tackle seasonal demands.

More Than Just a Job
