CHESTERFIELD COUNTY - Amazon has posted the first batch of more than a thousand job openings for its massive new distribution center in Chesterfield County.
Construction just began on the 1 million square foot facility in Meadowville Technology Park off I-295, but the online retailer is already trying to hire several employees. Positions listed right now on Amazon's career website are mostly management roles, including an area manager, an assistant buyer, a safety specialist, and an IT manager.
In all, Amazon plans to hire about 1,000 workers in Chesterfield, and another 350 for a center in Dinwiddie. Construction on the facilities is expected to wrap up this fall.
