Amazon brings 175 new jobs to area

AMSTERDAM — In celebration of its Amsterdam station launch, Amazon donated $10,000 to the Greater Amsterdam School District, enabling them to provide school supplies for 3,800 K-12 students.

The delivery station, which is located at 1785 Route 5S, will create more than 175 full and part-time associate jobs, all paying at least $15 per hour, in addition to hundreds of driver opportunities for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex drivers, according to a news release. 

Delivery stations power the last mile of Amazon’s order process and help speed up deliveries for customers.

Packages are shipped to a delivery station from neighboring Amazon Fulfillment and Sortation Centers, loaded into delivery vehicles and delivered to customers.
