Amazon is hiring for more than 2,000 full-time positions ahead of the launch of two upcoming fulfillment centers in Fontana and Rialto, the company announced on June 4.

Hiring for the fulfillment centers are taking place successively: the more than 600,000 square-foot fulfillment center in Fontana is hiring now, while hiring for the more than 850,000 square-foot Rialto fulfillment center will begin in mid-June.

Jobs will include receiving inventory, picking and shipping customer orders, and supporting network logistics, the company said.

Interested candidates for both sites are encouraged to apply at www.amazon.com/IEjobs

For the Fontana site, candidates should text FONTANANOW to 77088 to apply.

For the Rialto site, candidates should text RIALTONOW to 77088 to be alerted once full-time roles open.

On top of Amazon’s $15 minimum wage, employees will receive industry-leading benefits starting on day one including comprehensive full health, vision and dental insurance, 401(k) with 50 percent match, up to 20 weeks paid parental leave, and Amazon’s CareerChoice program which pre-pays 95 percent of tuition for courses in high-demand fields. Since Amazon launched CareerChoice in 2014, more than 16,000 employees have pursued degrees in game design, nursing, IT programming and other professions.

Job candidates must be 18 years or older and have a high school diploma or equivalent to be considered. All interested candidates need to apply online where they can indicate a shift preference and select an appointment time to attend an upcoming hiring event and orientation. Shift schedules will vary. Veterans and military spouses are encouraged to apply.
