More jobs are available at the Amazon facility in Hebron as the online retailer adds thousands of positions across the country.
Amazon announced Monday morning that it is creating more than 5,000 new full-time jobs in its U.S. fulfillment network to meet growing customer demand. Median pay inside Amazon fulfillment centers is 30 percent higher than that of people who work in traditional retail stores, according to a news release from the company which added that that percentage does not include the stock grants that full-time employees receive, which over the past five years have added an average of 9% to base pay annually.
Amazon employs over 20,000 full-time employees in its U.S. fulfillment centers.
“We’re hiring more than 5,000 people to join our team and help us continue to innovate and serve our customers,” said
Dave Clark, vice president of worldwide operations and customer service at Amazon. “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.”
The more than 5,000 jobs now available across the fulfillment network include picking, packing and shipping customer orders. The jobs offer competitive pay, a comprehensive benefits package, company stock awards and bonuses, according to the news release.
Hebron is one of seventeen locations where the new positions are now available.
