Amazon plans to hire 2,100 at Indiana warehouses

Amazon says it plans to add 2,100 workers at its locations in Indiana as it looks to hire more employees across the country.

The company announced plans Tuesday to add to its 7,000 workers currently in Indiana.

Amazon plans to bring on 1,400 new workers at central Indiana fulfillment centers in Indianapolis, Plainfield, and Whitestown, as well as an additional 700 workers at its Jeffersonville location in southern Indiana.

Full-time workers at fulfillment centers typically make $11 to $14 per hour plus benefits.

Amazon spokeswoman Nina Lindsey said the company was adding 10,000 jobs nationwide due to global demand for products. She said the company plans to add workers immediately.

Incentives for the new jobs are being negotiated by the Indiana Economic Development Corp., The Indianapolis Star reported.
