Amazon hiring hundreds in Ruskin

Posted: Updated:

Amazon is now hiring for hundreds of full-time positions available at its Hillsborough County site.

The one million-square-foot fulfillment center is currently under construction in Ruskin.

This is this first phase of hiring. Amazon will eventually hire more than 1,000 full-time jobs at the facility.

The hourly positions will pick, pack and ship items to customers.

“Amazon continues to be a major driver of economic growth and job creation in Hillsborough County. With these new job opportunities in South Shore, Amazon is already having a tremendous economic impact on the community,” said Sandra Murman, Hillsborough County Commissioner. “Today’s announcement regarding Amazon’s ongoing efforts to immediately hire hundreds of employees will continue to strengthen the ability of our families and businesses to thrive and prosper."

In addition to competitive wages, employees are immediately eligible for comprehensive benefits that include health insurance, 401(k) with 50 percent match, bonuses, company stock awards and a network of support to ensure employees succeed. Amazon also offers full-time employees innovative programs like Career Choice, where 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.
