/// With Obama Visit on Tap, Amazon Announces 5,000 New Warehouse Jobs
A day before President Obama is set to deliver a jobs speech at its Chattanooga warehouse, Amazon today announced that it is adding 5,000 full-time jobs to its network of warehouses. The hiring will occur both at current and new fulfillment centers, as Amazon expands its AmazonFresh grocery delivery business and competes with eBay and others to bring same-day delivery to the masses. Amazon currently employs 20,000 full-time employees across its 40-plus U.S. warehouses.
