The new sites in Cranbury Township, Edison and Logan Township will create more than 2,500 new, full-time jobs.

Since Amazon launched operations in New Jersey in 2012, the company has grown its fulfillment workforce in the state to 13,000-plus full-time employees across seven existing facilities in Avenel, Carteret, Florence, Logan Township and Robbinsville.

Amazon employees at the more than 900,000-square-foot fulfillment center in Cranbury Township and the 1-million-square-foot fulfillment center in Logan Township will pick, pack and ship larger customer items such as music equipment, sports gear, and patio furniture.

The 900,000-square-foot fulfillment center in Edison will handle smaller customer items such as books, toys and kitchenware.

Full-time employees at Amazon receive competitive hourly wages and a comprehensive benefits package starting on day one including healthcare, 401(k) and company stock awards.

Amazon also offers regular full-time employees parental leave benefits and access to innovative programs like Career Choice, where it will pre-pay up to 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a career at Amazon.

Since the program’s launch, over 9,000 employees have pursued degrees in game design and visual communications, nursing, IT programming, and radiology, to name a few.
