To support growing customer demand, Amazon.com Inc announced plans to open a new fulfillment center in Goodyear, Arizona, during the third quarter of 2008. The new facility, operated by Amazon.com azdc inc, will be more than 500,000 square feet and will create more than 600 full-time positions this year, with an additional 700 temporary positions during the 2008 holiday season.

The facility is located at 16920 W. Commerce Drive in Goodyear, and is Amazon's second fulfillment center in Arizona, following the opening of a facility in Phoenix last year.

"Corporate America is beginning to discover the City of Goodyear," said Mayor James Cavanaugh. "I know that Amazon appreciates the fact that our community is filled with people who are enthusiastic about joining such a well-known company. We're fortunate to be a city where so many new jobs are being created, and we are thrilled to welcome Amazon to Goodyear."

"As we continue to expand selection for customers across all product categories, we're excited to be opening a new facility in Goodyear to allow us to serve customers more quickly and efficiently," said Mike McKenna, vice president, Amazon fulfillment services.

Amazon is seeking highly motivated individuals with drive, ambition and a passion for giving customers a first-class shopping experience, and is currently recruiting for individuals seeking full-time employment. Management openings include roles as Area Managers, Operations Managers, Safety Managers and Facilities Area Managers.

Amazon will be conducting an open house for management roles on June 26, 2008, from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Radisson City Center, located at 3600 N. Second Avenue in Phoenix.
