Are you looking for a job and don't want to deal with people in the service industry? Well, Amazon might have a position for you in one of its many fulfillment centers (i.e. warehouses) across the country.

Amazon announced this morning that it's looking to hire 2,500 full-time workers across its network of U.S. fulfillment centers. While Amazon may say network, it's really only looking to hire at six of its warehouses. Those six locations are:

  • Chester, Va.
  • Coffeyville, Kan.
  • Columbia, S.C.
  • Dupont, Wash.
  • Murfreesboro, Tenn.
  • Petersburg, Va.
  • “Last year, we hired more than 20,000 people into full-time jobs across our U.S. fulfillment centers – with more than half starting as seasonal employees,” said Mike Roth, Amazon’s vice president of North America operations. “Today, we’re excited to announce 2,500 full-time jobs, bringing new employment opportunities to local communities across the country.”

    While the work at Amazon is tough, it does offer some pretty good benefits. For starters, you get healthcare on day one. Other benefits include 401(k) matching, performance-based bonuses and Amazon's exemplary Career Choice program that pre-pays 95 percent of an employee's tuition so they can pursue the degree of their choice.
