Amazon now hiring for Fayetteville Inbound Cross-Dock Facility

By Staff Report, posted 2 weeks ago

After 7:00 pm tonight, May 31, Amazon will begin hiring for its completed Inbound Cross-Dock facility in Fayetteville. Interested applicants can apply by going to amazon.com/flexiblejobs. The company will be hiring in phases, with additional positions posted each Friday evening (jobs will not be posted before 7:00 p.m.). Pay for these positions starts at $17.00 per hour, with benefits including medical, dental and vision effective on the first day of employment.

At full operation, the 1.3 million square-foot facility, located in the Military Business Park (6309 Bragg Blvd, Fayetteville, NC 28303) will employ more than 1,000 workers in full and part-time positions. Applications must be made online and will not be taken on site. Those without internet access are encouraged to visit any of Cumberland County’s library locations. Applications are only accepted through Amazon’s job portal on their website, amazon.com/flexiblejobs.

“This project is a tremendous milestone for our community, bringing essential job opportunities and a positive economic impact that will benefit all our residents. The introduction of hundreds of new jobs will invigorate our local economy, support families, and drive the growth of our city,” said Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin in a press release. “I want to express my deepest gratitude to everyone for their patience and support throughout the completion of this project. Together, we are forging a brighter future for Fayetteville.”

When combined with their existing last mile delivery facility at 1005 Dunn Road, Amazon will soon be one of the largest private sector employers in Cumberland County, contributing millions of dollars in wages to the local economy, as well as property tax revenue to the City and County.

“We are thrilled Amazon is at the point where they are ready to staff this new facility and we are excited about what this means for our residents who will have the opportunity to fill these jobs,” said Cumberland County Board of Commissioners Chairman Glenn Adams in a press release. “When we’re able to bring economic development projects like this to Cumberland County, it’s not just an investment in buildings and equipment – it’s an investment in our community and our workforce to provide life-changing opportunities, and we are seeing that investment multiplied throughout our county. We can build a brighter future, where innovation and collaboration make a way for prosperity."

The project is the culmination of strong collaborative efforts from multiple public and private organizations including the City of Fayetteville, Cumberland County, Amazon, Fayetteville Public Works Commission, Piedmont Natural Gas, North Carolina Department of Transportation, Broadwell Construction Company, Cape Fear Commercial Real Estate, Ryan Companies and FCEDC.
