Amazon is also adding full-time and part-time positions in sorting and shipping. Benefits will be offered.

As you may know, Amazon has a number of Triangle-area facilities, including a major warehouse in Garner. However, the company recently closed a facility in Durham and is facing unionization efforts in the Garner location.

“We value our seasonal employees at Amazon by offering well-paying jobs with a variety of schedules,” said Nariq Jones, a Human Resources leader at Amazon’s fulfillment center in Garner, in a statement.  “As demand ramps up, these employees play an important role by making sure we’re delivering packages and smiles to our customers throughout the 2022 holiday season.”
