Amazon employees at the new 700,000 square-foot Joliet fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship smaller items to customers like books, toys and electronics.
“We have found an abundance of talent in Joliet and we are excited to bring a new fulfillment center to the city and create 2,000 great full-time jobs with benefits. This community and the elected officials throughout the city and state have been very supportive of Amazon and we thank them for helping make this possible.” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon's vice president of North American operations.
Amazon also offers employees innovative programs like Career Choice, where the company pre-pays 95 per cent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a career at Amazon. Since the program's launch, employees are pursuing degrees in game design and visual communications, nursing, IT programming and radiology, to name a few. (HO)
