Amazon is hiring for more than 700 full-time positions at its Salt Lake City Fulfillment Center for a variety of roles, the company said last week. Employees will play integral roles within Amazon’s customer fulfillment operations — everything from receiving inventory to picking and shipping customer orders. Hirees will also work alongside technologies such as Amazon robotics that are used on a daily basis to fulfill customer orders.
Amazon emphasized that the new positions are permanent and start at at least the company’s $15 minimum wage. Employees will receive company benefits that include full health, vision and dental insurance; 401(k) with 50 percent match; up to 20 weeks paid parental leave; and Amazon’s CareerChoice program, which pre-pays 95 percent of tuition for courses in high-demand fields.
