September 10, 2019

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — An Amazon fulfillment center under construction near the Spokane airport is expected to open by the middle of next year.

The company says hiring will begin two months prior to completion of the $181 million building that covers 2.5 million square feet.

The company has said it will hire more than 1,500 workers at a wage of at least $15 per hour to pack and ship items. The workforce will grow to 3,000 during the holiday shopping period.

The Spokesman-Review reports the company has more than 100 fulfillment centers nationwide.
