Amazon has started filling 500 full-time positions at its upcoming fulfillment center in North Las Vegas.
When the 800,000-square foot-plus facility opens this summer, it will be Amazon’s second facility in North Las Vegas and will ultimately employ 1,000 full-time associates who work alongside innovative technologies to pick, pack and ship larger customer items, such as televisions, kayaks, and patio furniture.
Full-time employees at Amazon receive competitive hourly wages and a comprehensive benefits package, including medical, dental and vision insurance, performance-based bonuses, 401(k) and company stock awards starting on day one. The company also offers up to 20 weeks of paid leave and benefits such as Leave Share and Ramp Back, which give new parents flexibility with their growing families.
Amazon also offers regular full-time employees programs like Career Choice, where it 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 9,000 employees are pursuing degrees in game design and visual communications, nursing, IT programming and radiology, to name a few.
In addition to its existing North Las Vegas facility which opened in 2009, Amazon currently has fulfillment locations in Reno and McCarran, and currently employs more than 3,000 Nevadans across the state.
