Amazon to add thousands of jobs

Posted: Updated:
SPARTANBURG, SC (AP/FOX Carolina) -

Amazon.com Inc. reported Monday that it plans to fill 7,000 jobs in 13 states, and South Carolina is among them.

The company said it will add 5,000 jobs at its U.S. distribution centers. South Carolina has facilities in Spartanburg and West Columbia. It hasn't been released how many of those jobs will specifically be available in the Palmetto State.

Aside from South Carolina, warehouse jobs are available in Arizona, Delaware, California, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

The world's largest online retailer has been spending heavily on order fulfillment, a strategy meant to help the business grow, but one that has also weighed on profits. Amazon said last week it lost money in the second quarter, even though revenue increased.

The company is also adding 2,000 customer service jobs, including full-time, part-time and seasonal in Kentucky, North Dakota, Washington and West Virginia.

Work from home positions are available in Oregon, Washington and Arizona.
