Amazon looking to fill jobs at Glendale facility

Company has invested more than $16 billion in Arizona

Posted

Amazon on Wednesday announced the findings from its 2021 U.S. Economic Impact Report, sharing that the company invested more than $14.6 billion in the Phoenix region and $16 billion in Arizona, since 2010.

To further Amazon’s growth in the region, Amazon is hiring for hundreds of full and part-time positions to support a new sortation center in Glendale and two new delivery stations in North Phoenix and Surprise. The jobs offer a starting pay of at least $15.50 per hour and benefits beginning on the first day of employment. Some positions also include a $1,000 sign-on bonus.

“Amazon has been a tremendous industry partner in Arizona, providing quality jobs, supporting skills training, and continually investing in communities throughout our state,” Arizona Commerce Authority president and CEO Sandra Watson stated in a news release. “We are grateful for Amazon’s commitment to Arizona and look forward to continuing to partner in their success for years to come.”

The Glendale facility is located off Sarival Road and Glendale Avenue near Luke Air Force Base and Loop 303. The Glendale sortation center will be Amazon’s first within city limits.

The company shared that it has created more than 30,000 jobs in Arizona in its operations, logistics, corporate and technology functions, and there are more on the way. The report also estimated that Amazon’s investments in the region led to the contribution of more than $13 billion to the economy over the last decade.

“We are proud that through Amazon’s investments and job creation in Arizona, we are providing opportunity and support for the communities where we live and work,” Amazon Director of Regional Operations Matthew High stated. “Partnering and reinvesting in the community is key to Amazon and our employee’s success and we look forward to continuing to develop our presence in the state.”
