Supermarket chain owned by JD.com, 7FRESH, also provided similar temporary vacancies for the position of store clerks, packing assistants, and delivery couriers.
A Chinese delivery company, Dada Group, also opened 15,000 temporary vacancies.
On the other hand, a Chinese multinational conglomerate, Alibaba Group, also revealed the “employee-sharing” scheme, where the employees from the non-operational businesses can work for Alibaba. Regarding the number of vacancies provided, Alibaba declined to reveal.
Alibaba only revealed that some employees have joined the temporary initiative.
