Amazon announced it is actively looking to fill 600 full-time positions in the 1 million square foot Burlington County, New Jersey fulfillment center. The new center will store electronics, pet food, and furniture, among many other household products.
The position starts at $15 an hour and provides full benefits, including 20 weeks of maternal and paternal paid leave. Employees will be responsible for retrieving orders and packaging and shipping the products to an Amazon customer located in our region.
This fulfillment center currently has 2,000 employees and is expected to be fully operational by November.
It was only last summer that Amazon shared plans to build this Burlington County facility and create 600 new jobs. The company now has well over 16,000 full-time employees in the state of New Jersey.
