The company employs thousands of people in these facilities.

"We are committed to growth in Indiana because Governor Daniels and other state officials have demonstrated their commitment to Amazon jobs and investment," said Paul Misener, vice-president, Amazon Global Public Policy.
Amazon is currently recruiting candidates for jobs at the Indianapolis facility. Candidates should be highly motivated with drive, ambition and a passion for giving customers a first-class shopping experience. Full-time hourly openings include roles in Picking, Packing and Receiving/Shipping. Management roles include positions in Operations, Safety, Human Resources and Technical Support.

In the past two weeks, Amazon fulfillment centers in six states have announced hiring plans for full-time jobs with comprehensive benefits, including healthcare, 401(k) and stock-based awards. Amazon also announced plans for a new fulfillment center in Washington State, as well as expansion of an existing fulfillment center in Arizona.
The new facility is expected to be complete this summer. The facilities are operated by Amazon.com.indc, LLC.
