Amazon.com, Inc. is in the processing adding 400 full-time jobs at its Lexington fulfillment center to help support growing customer demand.
The Seattle-based company is hiring for a variety of jobs in Lexington, ranging from managerial positions to hourly jobs in the warehousing, maintenance and receiving/shipping areas, among others. Hourly positions pay up to $12 per hour and include medical benefits, paid time off and Amazon.com stock grants.
