Amazon hiring in Southern California

Amazon Distribution Center, San Bernardino, CA

San Bernardino Amazon Center

The opening of the Amazon facility at the former Norton Air Force Base has proven to be a boon for the city of San Bernardino, which is reeling from a recent bankruptcy filing and workforce layoffs.

The facility, which was completed Oct. 1, handles shipments of products purchased online. City leaders hope that the tax on sales will help turn the city around since California law allows Amazon to designate which city is a “point of sale” for sales tax purposes, thus allowing San Bernardino to pocket 1 cent on the dollar for all sales processed through the center.

The wages are also a big plus, averaging about 30 percent higher than most traditional retail work. Those interested in working for Amazon, can apply online.
