The first selection of personnel for the large Amazon logistics hub under construction begins. The American giant, for the first time, officially announced its investment in southern Abruzzo. The first rumors date back to a year ago when Engineering 2K presented the Arap project to take over the autoport. In less than 365 days the two warehouses in the Region no longer exist and the huge structure that will house one of the largest Amazon sorting centers in Europe has been built on the site. In three years, the US giant aims to reach 1000 permanent positions.
The first estimate made at E2K, which is building the pole, spoke of 3,150 workers at full capacity, but this number includes the workers involved in construction and seasonal workers or, in any case, not permanent workers, which will vary according to needs. In view of the opening in late summer 2022, the selection process for managerial positions is starting: operations managers, engineers, HR and IT roles and those who will handle customer orders. It is possible to apply by accessing the amazon.jobs/it portal. As for the bulk of the future employees, that is the warehouse operators, the selection will start next year and the employees will be hired at the fifth level of the National Transport and Logistics Contract “with one of the highest entry salaries in the sector , and numerous benefits that include discounts for employees on Amazon.it and supplemental accident insurance ”.
