Amazon set for an expansion

Jeffersonville facility is Amazon’s largest in North America



The center is operating almost 24 hours-a-day with two shifts of employees, working 10 hour shifts, four days-a-week. The center is operational seven days-a-week.

Starting pay at the Jeffersonville site for warehouse associates is between $11 to $13 an hour, according to an email from Cheeseman. Amazon also offers workers company stock awards and health benefits.

She added that median pay inside the fulfillment center is 30 percent higher than that of people who work in traditional retail stores, which does not include stock benefits. And over the past five years, those benefits have added an average of 9 percent to base pay annually.

Today, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will tour the facility. He’ll also make stops in Southern Indiana at Silver Creek High School and the east-end bridge construction site. Look for coverage in the weekend News and Tribune and at
