While French and English bilingualism is preferred, it isn't listed as a requirement. 

In both locations, you'll be sorting, scanning and stacking packages as well as operating powered industrial equipment.

You may also get customer orders ready for delivery and use technology like scanners, computers and handheld printers. 

Keep in mind that you'll need to be able to lift up to 49 pounds as well as stand, walk, push, pull, squat, bend and reach during long shifts. 

Ideally, you should be physically fit as well as decent with machinery and technology.

You also must be able to handle noise and warm temperatures.

The job listing notes the various safety practices the company is taking. For instance, Amazon will give you protective gear, temperature checks are being conducted on-site and social distancing is in effect. 

Though CBC reported on health concerns in Canadian Amazon warehouses last year, Amazon said in a recent press release that it "prioritizes the safety and health of its employees," and has invested more than $961 million in safety measures and equipment.

The open positions in Longueuil are part-time while the positions in Lachine are full-time.
