SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Amazon is hiring for thousands of seasonal jobs at its two facilities in South Carolina, according to a spokesperson for the Seattle-based online company.

According to an Amazon spokesman, the bulk of the jobs will go to the sorting facility in West Columbia.

The Spartanburg County facility will receive some seasonal jobs. The Upstate location has been in operation for a month and is a non-sort facility that deals with larger items like water tanks, printers and car hoods.

The spokesperson said the jobs will most likely last to the end of the holiday season, depending on volume.

Amazon has said it is hiring approximately 50,000 temporary workers nationwide for the holiday season.

The Spartanburg facility is located off of John Dodd Road and employs about 400 workers.
