HENDERSON (KTNV) — Amazon is hiring for more than 1,000 full-time positions ahead of the launch of its 600,000 square-foot cross-dock facility in Henderson.

Amazon says all associates will go through 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, the company says.
Amazon says its Henderson facility follows all health and safety protocols including social distancing guidelines.
