It's Official: 375 Amazon Jobs Coming To Spartanburg County

Amazon.com, Inc. officially announced plans Monday to open a new center in Spartanburg County. 

Officials say 375 jobs will be available initially, but more are expected after the center begins operating this Fall.

"I think Amazon is much like BMW, they tend to under-promise and over-deliver," said Spartanburg County Council Vice Chairman David Britt.

Jobs will range from packing materials to managing workers, and on-site job training will be available for certain positions.

According to Britt, the facility will be different than the one in Lexington County, as workers will handle larger-scale items.

"But will have the capability of also being switched to whatever Amazon sees needing to come out of Spartanburg," Britt adds.

Amazon would not release any information regarding salaries and qualifications needed to get a job.

The hiring process is expected to start within the next few months.  How and when to apply will be announced soon.

Amazon’s new facility in Spartanburg County will be approximately one million square feet on a site near John Dodd Road. 

"We had a great first holiday season in Lexington County and we look forward to serving our customers from both Lexington and Spartanburg Counties by the fall," said Dave Clark, vice president, Amazon Global Customer Fulfillment in a written statement. 

Amazon will make a $50 million investment.

Britt says this brings the total amount of money invested in Spartanburg County in 2012 to $1 billion, and companies have announced creating more than 1,000 jobs in January.
