Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) today announced plans to open a fifth California fulfillment center in Redlands. Since opening its first fulfillment center in the state under two years ago, Amazon has created thousands of full-time jobs and expanded its presence to nearly five-million-square-feet. Amazon’s other California fulfillment centers are located in San Bernardino, Moreno Valley, Patterson and Tracy.
“We are proud to be hiring for more than 2,500 full-time jobs in California that offer wages 30 percent higher than traditional retail stores and include comprehensive benefits on day one, bonuses and stock awards,” said Mike Roth, Amazon’s vice president of North America operations. “We have found great talent in the state and we’re excited to be growing quickly to serve our customers.”
“My Council colleagues and I are very excited that Amazon has chosen the City of Redlands to locate their new fulfillment center. And we are looking forward to the hundreds of new local jobs it will create,” said Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar. “Amazon is among the innovative and successful companies that have recognized our City's attractive, business-friendly atmosphere, ideal location and skilled and diverse labor force. We are looking forward to Amazon taking its place as a valued member of our business community.”
Amazon employees at the 700,000 square-foot Redlands fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship large items to customers such as big-screen televisions or kayaks, for example.
Amazon offers hourly employees innovative programs like Career Choice, where the company will pre-pay up to 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a career at Amazon. Since the program's launch, employees are pursuing degrees in game design and visual communications, nursing, IT programming and radiology, to name a few.
Clarion Partners is the building owner and Trammell Crow Company is managing construction of the new fulfillment center in Redlands. To learn more about working at an Amazon fulfillment center, visit www.amazonfulfillmentcareers.com.
