SEATTLE (July 31, 2013) — Amazon is creating more than 5,000 new full-time jobs in its U.S. fulfillment network to meet growing customer demand, including its Kentucky facilities.

AMAZON-395Median pay inside Amazon fulfillment centers is 30 percent higher than that of people who work in traditional retail stores. 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 percent of eligible employees’ tuition regardless of whether the skills they learn are relevant to a career at Amazon.”

Amazon has created thousands of jobs across its fulfillment center and customer service networks in recent years. In the past year alone, Amazon opened eight fulfillment centers in the U.S., resulting in thousands of new jobs being added to communities nationwide. The more than 5,000 jobs now available across the fulfillment network include picking, packing and shipping customer orders while engaging with high-end, state of the art technology. The jobs offer competitive pay, a comprehensive benefits package, company stock awards and bonuses.
