Amazon to Open New $350M Distribution Center in Central NY

Amazon recently announced they were opening a $350M, distribution center in Clay NY.  The center is expected to open in September of 2021, so there's time for job seekers to learn more about the roles that will be offered - and to apply.

Those interested in applying can sign up on the company’s website to receive email alerts about available jobs.  They can text AMAZON to 77088 to receive text alerts as well.

Amazon spokesperson said most of the new jobs will be fulfillment associate positions. Workers in those jobs will bring merchandise (books, electronics, household goods, toys and other small products) into the building, load it into storage pods, pull it from those pods to fill customer orders, package it and load it back onto a truck for shipment.

In addition, Amazon will be hiring for human resources, operations management, safety, security, finance and information technology positions.

The jobs will pay a minimum of $15 an hour. The company says full-time employees receive comprehensive benefits, including full medical, vision and dental insurance, and a 401(k) retirement plan with a 50% company match on day one. It also offers up to 20 weeks of maternal and parental paid leave.
