Amazon is now hiring for more than 1,000 full-time positions ahead of the launch of its 600,000 square-foot cross-dock facility in Henderson, Nev. Amazon’s cross-dock buildings support customer fulfillment by receiving large orders of inventory, largely from small and medium sized businesses, and redistributing products to fulfillment centers across the company’s operations network.
 
On top of Amazon’s minimum $15 per hour wage, the company offers full-time employees comprehensive benefits including full medical, vision, and dental insurance as well as a 401(k) with 50-percent match starting on day one. The company also offers up to 20 weeks of maternal and parental paid leave and innovative benefits such as Leave Share and Ramp Back, which give new parents flexibility with their growing families. 
 
All associates will go through hours of safety training and ongoing coaching and will have access to continuing education opportunities through Amazon’s upskilling programs, such as Career Choice, in which 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, more than 25,000 employees have pursued degrees in game design and visual communications, nursing, IT programming and radiology, to name a few.
 
In addition, Amazon has pledged to invest more than $700 million to provide upskilling training for 100,000 U.S. employees for in demand jobs. Programs will help Amazonians from all backgrounds access training to move into highly skilled roles across the company’s corporate offices, tech hubs, fulfillment centers and transportation network, or pursue career paths outside of Amazon.
 
Amazon’s Henderson facility follows all health and safety protocols including social distancing guidelines. Across operations, Amazon is investing more than $800 million dollars in the first half of this year on safety measures like temperature checks, masks, enhanced cleaning, gloves, sanitation stations, and onsite testing, to name a few.
