Amazon hiring again in Murfreesboro

Another 500 jobs to be added at regional fulfillment center

Amazon announced today it plans to add another 500 full-time jobs to pick, pack and ship customer orders from its Murfreesboro fulfillment center. The move will take the Rutherford County operations of the web retail giant well north of 1,500.

The positions are eligible for a range of benefits including health, a 50 percent 401(k) match, bonuses, company stock awards and college tuition assistance.

The retail giant announced last summer that the Murfreesboro and Chattanooga facilities would be included in a 5,000-job nationwide expansion. The Murfreesboro property was recently acquired by Phoenix-based Cole Capital and its Cole Corporate Income Trust in September, alongside 11 other office and industrial properties across the country.
