WHITESTOWN, Ind. - Amazon is hiring for more than 700 full-time positions with benefits starting on day one at its fulfillment center in Whitestown, Ind. Amazon is hiring in order to meet growing customer demand.

"Thousands of Hoosiers employed by Amazon, including those in Indianapolis, are thankful for the opportunities that the company has brought to our state."

The Whitestown facility first opened on August 2008, when it shipped its first customer order, a Pet Nail Trimmer, to a customer in California.
