Amazon.com, Inc. will create more than 2,000 new permanent full- and part-time jobs in Nevada with eight new buildings across the state to support customer fulfillment and delivery operations.
Amazon broke ground in October on an 855,000 square-foot fulfillment center in North Las Vegas, creating 1,500 new full-time jobs when it opens in 2021.
The site will be the second fulfillment center in the state using Amazon Robotics to help associates pick, pack and ship smaller items to customers.
“Amazon is proud to continue investing in the state of Nevada, where we opened our first fulfillment center in Fernley more than 20 years ago,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s Vice President of Global Customer Fulfillment. “We’re excited to create more than 2,000 new full- and part-time jobs across the state with highly competitive pay, benefits from day one and training programs for in-demand jobs.”
“This is welcome news for the entire state of Nevada,” said Governor Steve Sisolak. “Amazon continues to make investments to support local communities and has become a lifeline for those in our state who have experienced job loss during the pandemic. We are grateful for Amazon’s decision to expand operations across Nevada, creating thousands of career opportunities for our citizens.”
The new sites also include five delivery stations that power the last mile of Amazon’s order fulfillment process, creating hundreds of permanent full-time and part-time jobs. This network of delivery stations will also offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own small business delivering Amazon packages, and independent contractors the flexibility to be their own boss and create their own schedule delivering for Amazon Flex. Amazon’s new delivery stations in Nevada include:
- Henderson – Delivery Station opening in 2021
- Las Vegas – Delivery Station opening in 2021
- North Las Vegas – Delivery Station opened in September 2020
- Reno – Delivery Station opened in October 2020
- Reno – “AMXL” Fulfillment Center / Delivery Station opening in 2021. This site supports the fulfillment and delivery of large products, from televisions to couches, powered by drivers employed by Amazon’s delivery service partners or national third party carriers.
