Amazon announced on Monday that it is creating over 5,000 new full-time jobs in the U.S. across its fulfillment network, and it is starting the hiring process now. According to the company, its median pay is 30% higher than that of people who work in traditional retail stores.

The jobs currently available are in Breinigsville, Pennsylvania, Middletown, Delaware, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Charleston, South Carolina, Patterson, California Chester, Virginia, Phoenix, Arizona, Coppell, Texas San Antonio, Texas, Haslet, Texas San Bernardino, California, Hebron, Kentucky, Spartanburg, South Carolina, Indianapolis, Indiana, Tracy, Calif. and Jeffersonville, Indiana.

The jobs include stock grants, which Amazon says that over the past five years have added an average of 9% to base pay annually.

“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% of eligible employees’ tuition regardless of whether the skills they learn are relevant to a career at Amazon.”

Amazon currently employs over 20,000 full-time employees at its U.S. fulfillment centers alone. In the last year, the company has opened eight fulfillment centers in the U.S., and has already added thousands of jobs as a result.

The company is also hiring for 2,000 jobs in its customer service network (a mix of part-time and full-time positions) in Grand Forks, North Dakota, Kennewick, Washington, Huntington, West Virginia, and Winchester, Kentucky.

    This could be happening all across the United States. Our politicians don’t get it. Stop giving our money away to foreign countries, repeal NAFTA, lower our defense spending (we already spend more than the rest of the world combined on defense) and bring back manufacturing to the US.

    Of course they won’t do this because they all own stock in the private companies that are making a killing off of the existing system.

    That is why I hate all this republican/democrat/tea party fighting. All politicians are the same: the essentially go to the same schools, join the same clubs, attend the same parties, enjoy the same benefits, and invest in the same things. In public, the parties fight but behind closed doors they are all friends and serving only themselves.

      this is also why i left the military….and after 11 yrs!! the politics game is trickling down and very badly into the peons of the government, the lower enlisted service men and women. i had to go, and becoming a civilian allows me to wake up more to precisely the things you stated.
