Stock listings will not run in The State’s Business pages Thursday. Early deadlines due to the inclement weather did not allow time for the newspaper staff to include listings compiled of stocks of local interest. The stock listings will return when the weather and deadlines return to normal.
Amazon hiring again
Amazon says it is hiring more than 2,500 full-time workers at its order fulfillment centers around the U.S., including the one in West Columbia. Amazon.com Inc. said Wednesday that the jobs also are available in Chester, Va., and Petersburg, Va.; Coffeyville, Kan.; Dupont, Wash.; and Murfreesboro, Tenn. The world’s largest online retailer says last year it hired more than 20,000 people at its fulfillment centers, with more than half starting out as seasonal workers. Amazon says the median income for people working at its order-fulfillment facilities is higher than at traditional retailers. The Seattle-based company had 117,300 full-time and part-time employees at the end of 2013, according to a regulatory filing.
