The world's biggest online retailer Amazon said it will open a seventh California fulfillment centre in San Bernardino, where the company launched its first Golden State fulfillment centre in 2012.

“Amazon currently employs more than 12,000 full-time associates at its six existing California locations and plans to create more than 1,000 more full-time positions in the new facility,” a press release revealed.

Outside of San Bernardino, Amazon's other Golden State fulfillment centers are located in Tracy, Patterson, Moreno Valley, Redlands and Rialto.

“San Bernardino has proven to be an important part of Amazon's growth and we are proud to continue creating jobs and helping support the economy,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon's vice president of North American operations.

“At these centres, we have also provided continuing education classrooms onsite, generous paid parental leave benefits and leadership growth for associates and competitive wages,” Chauhan added.

Amazon employees at the 1.1 million-square-foot San Bernardino fulfillment centre will pick, pack, and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and toys.

“We are excited Amazon continues to view San Bernardino as a great place to do business and we're proud to be part of Amazon's history and future,” said Carey Davis, Mayor of San Bernardino.

“The company continues hosting a robust public tours program, donating needed items and volunteer hours to local charities, and supporting local businesses on a regular basis,” Davis informed.

Full-time employees at Amazon receive competitive hourly wages and benefits like healthcare, 401(k) and company stock awards as well as generous maternity and paternity leave benefits.

Amazon also offers regular full-time employees innovative programs like Career Choice, where it pre-pays up to 95 per cent of tuition fees for courses related to in-demand fields.

“Since the program's launch, employees are pursuing degrees in game design and visual communications, nursing, IT programming and radiology, to name a few,” the online retailer too added. (AR)
