Amazon creates 5,000 new full-time jobs across the US

Amazon doubles down on the US, creates over 5,000 new full-time jobs

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Jul 29, 2013 9:21 am

It wasn't long ago that we were reporting that US-based e-tailer Amazon reached record highs on their share prices, and not long after that we reported about Amazon tripling their employees to over 97,000 in the last three years.

Now the company has announced they've created 5,000 new full-time jobs in its US fulfillment network in order to meet increased customer demand. Amazon are quite generous, too, with their median pay in their fulfillment centers around 30% higher than employees in traditional retail stores. This isn't even counting the fact that Amazon offer stock grants to full-time staff, which add an average of 9% to base pay each year.

 

Dave Clark, Vice President of Worldwide Operations and Customer Service at Amazon said: "We're hiring more than 5,000 people to join our team and help us continue to innovate and serve our customers. We're focused on sustained innovation across Amazon and want to help our employees succeed-whether at Amazon or elsewhere-so we offer programs like Career Choice, where we'll pay for up to 95% of eligible employees' tuition regardless of whether the skills they learn are relevant to a career at Amazon."

 

Fulfillment network jobs are available in the following cities:

 

  • Breinigsville, Pa.
  • Middletown, Del.
  • Chattanooga, Tenn.
  • Murfreesboro, Tenn.
  • Charleston, S.C.
  • Patterson, Calif.
  • Chester, Va.
  • Phoenix, Ariz.
  • Coppell, Texas
  • San Antonio, Texas
  • Haslet, Texas
  • San Bernardino, Calif.
  • Hebron, Ky.
  • Spartanburg, S.C.
  • Indianapolis, Ind.
  • Tracy, Calif.
  • Jeffersonville, Ind.
