Good news for job-seekers willing to start at $15 an hour for fast-paced, physical work: Amazon wants to fill about 2,000 Detroit-area openings.
The Freep has general information:
The open positions start at $15 an hour, Amazon said, and come with sign-on bonuses of up to $500. There's a variety of jobs available, many in fulfillment operations that include stowing, picking and packing customer orders. ...
The openings are in addition to 100 white-collar and tech jobs available in Detroit that Amazon plans to fill over the next two years.
About 100 positions open now are at a recently opened delivery station in Pontiac, an executive trells the paper. Opportunities also are in the areas of engineering, quality and training, the human resources vice president adds.
No contact details are published, and only about a dozen jobs -- mostly in warehouses -- are listed at this Amazon employment page.
Prospective applicants for future openings can sign up at that page for emails or text AMAZON to 77088 for mobile alerts. Benefits are summarized here.
