Amazon to Hire 5,000 for Warehouse Expansion Plan

Seattle Times (07/28/13) Cecilia Kang

Amazon plans to hire 5,000 employees in its U.S. distribution warehouses, and another 2,000 customer service employees in other locations, as part of an ambitious growth strategy. Amazon will hire immediately in 17 fulfillment centers. The positions are full-time and include benefits. Temporary workers, such as those hired during the holiday rush, can buy medical coverage through staffing firms.

President Obama will visit Amazon’s Chattanooga, TN, fulfillment center to outline policy proposals to spur middle-class job creation. Apple also recently announced that it would make certain Mac computers domestically.
