Amazon’s first fulfillment center in Missouri is officially open! The 855,000 square foot state-of-the-art center opened July 21 in St. Peters.
The site’s leadership team kicked things off with a focus on building a family atmosphere – one team. New employees were treated to an orange-carpet welcome which included Louie, the Stanley Cup Champion St. Louis Blues mascot, and a world-famous Budweiser Clydesdale. The first item received into inventory at the fulfillment center was a Classic Colander by KitchenAid.
More than 1,500 full-time associates will eventually work at the St. Peter’s Amazon Robotics fulfillment center. Starting on day one, associates receive Amazon’s $15 hourly minimum wage and healthcare benefits.
There are still positions available at the St. Peters fulfillment center located in the Premier 370 Business Park at Highway 370 and Truman Road. Interested candidates can learn more and apply online at www.amazon.com/stlouisjobs.
