Amazon to hire 2,500 new workers across US

SEATTLE - Amazon says it is hiring more than 2,500 full-time workers at its order fulfilmentcentres around the U.S.


SEATTLE - Amazon says it is hiring more than 2,500 full-time workers at its order fulfilmentcentres around the U.S.

Amazon.com Inc. plans to announce Wednesday that the jobs are available in Chester, Va., and Petersburg, Va.; Coffeyville, Kan.; Columbia, S.C.; Dupont, Wash.; Murfreesboro, Tenn.

The world's largest online retailer says last year it hired more than 20,000 people at its fulfilmentcentres, with more than half starting out as seasonal workers. Amazon says the median income for people working at its order-fulfilment facilities is higher than at traditional retailers.

The Seattle-based company had 117,300 full-time and part-time employees at the end of 2013, according to a regulatory filing.
