(Western Morning News (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Online retail giant Amazon is to create 800 jobs before the end of the year as it gears up for the busy festive season. The company also announced changes to shift patterns at its distribution centres, moving from five-day, eight-hour shifts to four-day ten- hour shifts. The move will give workers three days off every week. Amazon's temporary workers will be offered the chance to take up the 800 new permanent posts on guaranteed hours as opposed to zero- hours contracts.
