Amazon to hire 400 near Houston

HOUSTON — Amazon is hiring more than 400 full-time positions at its new fulfillment center in metropolitan Houston, the company announced Friday.

Average pay starts at $12/hour, and there will be on-the-spot job offers, according to the company.

According to Amazon’s website, benefits for full-time employees include: Medical, prescription drug, dental and vision coverage, 401(k) savings plan, paid time-off and holiday overtime pay, and discounts on Amazon purchases.

“New associates will join the more than 125,000 regular, full-time associates at Amazon’s more than 75 fulfillment centers across North America to help pick, pack and ship customers’ orders,” the company stated in a press release.

Amazon employs 300,000 in the U.S. and has been rapidly building out its network of fulfillment centers as it offers customers shorter delivery times.
