 Amazon.com Hiring 175 in Grand Forks, ND


10/03/02 - In celebration of their three-year anniversary of its acquisition of the catalog division of Acme Tool Crib of the North, Amazon.com announced plans to hire 175 full and part-time employees.

While most of the new hires will be assisting with the holiday rush, Amazon expects to permanently hire over two-thirds of the new employees. The 140 customer service representatives and 35 distribution staff are expected to be hired and trained by mid-November. The Grand Forks operation currently employs over 350.

"Our local facility has become increasingly more productive and more efficient, while still retaining its customer-driven, service approach," said Brian Mathews, Strategic Growth Manager for Amazon's Grand Forks operations. "The high caliber of our local employees and their strong work ethic has been an underlying factor in our success."
