On-line Giant To Hire 50,000 at JOBS DAY Event Wednesday 8/2/17

By

Hoping to hire 50,000 full and part-time workers, the first “Jobs Day” event is happening Wednesday August 2 in ten cities across the U.S.

Amazon is opening at 8 am – 12 noon (local time) at ten fulfillment centers across the nation.  Anyone interested in a job can show up at a fulfillment center for a tour and apply. The company is advising applicants to bring ID and other information to fill out the application.

Here is where Amazon will be hosting events:

  • Baltimore, Maryland
  • Chattanooga, Tennessee
  • Etna, Ohio
  • Fall River, Massachusetts
  • Hebron, Kentucky
  • Kent, Washington
  • Kenosha, Wisconsin
  • Robbinsville, New Jersey
  • Romeoville, Illinois
  • Whitestown, Indiana
  • Buffalo, New York*
  • Oklahoma City, Oklahoma*

* not at fulfillment center, but also hosting Job Day event.

In January, Amazon announced that it would hire 100,000 workers across the USA through 2018.  Full-time workers can get benefits, like health insurance and retirement savings.  

Amazon also offers full-time workers a benefit called “Career Choice” which pays up to 95% of the cost of tuition for an in-demand field, like nursing or IT careers.  This is the first of the efforts, where Amazon is hoping to hire 50,000 workers IN ONE DAY!
