GREENWOOD, Ind. (AP) — Online retail giant Amazon is hiring more than 1,000 full-time workers for a packaging center in suburban Indianapolis.
Seattle-based Amazon is preparing to open the so-called fulfillment center after last year signing a lease in Greenwood, where a FedEx distribution center was planned before that company backed out. The Amazon facility is expected to open in September. Online job applications are being accepted.
Greenwood's council approved tax breaks on property taxes for the building and equipment.
The company has said it planned to invest $45 million in property improvements and $35 million in equipment and could bring about 1,250 jobs to the area in the coming years.
