Southern California job hunters get some hope from Amazon....

Post by superstevies on Mon Jun 11, 2012 2:48 pm

Well it's no secret that California it a tough place to find a job right now... I have not have any real prospects in over 6 months..but I did get a glimmer of hope and this is not a solicitation but more so just passing along info. to anybody in so. cal. looking for job that has run out of places to apply.

Amazon is putting in a HUGE (950,000-square foot) Distrubution Center in San Bernardino Ca. This will create hundreds of FULL TIME jobs & be the first round of more that a 1,000 promised jobs. These are not Glam jobs but supposed to be a Fun safe working enviornment. $12hr. with benefits. & leads will earn $14hr. with benefits & says a lot of overtime hrs. too. Benefits include health insurance & Amazon stock options.

To apply the web address is ......www.WorkatAmazonFulfillment.com. It's one of those ones that takes some time to create a profile....submit to a background check....& a assesment took about 1 hr. total but I have run out of all options. I used to be the Store Manager of a Pier 1 Imports & for Best Buy too...with over 16 years as a manager & now can't get a thing...Not even a floor sweeping postion. It's like I no longer exhist. So I hope I will be one of the many that get a full time job out of this...but if not me, hopefully this will help somebody esle in my shoes as well. Good Luck...& sorry to the moderators if this type of post is frowned upon...if so, just delete it.

Thank you Steve! It is about time there was some good news on the jobs front in places like CA. Although it may not be the dream job, it sounds like they provide great benefits and a fun work environment. To me, sometimes these two qualities are more important than earning a big salary and being miserable!

I hope some of our CA members look into this! Good luck to those who apply, it is a start back into the real world!

Thanks Desperate...I need all the LUCK I can get. One of the good things although lower pay, it is FULL TIME WORK. That is what's hard to find anywhere right now.

I know someone who works at Amazon and she loves it. Her and her husband both work there, different shifts, and she can't say enough good things about a warehouse position that doesn't seem like a warehouse position. She has a lot of fun and looks forward to working.

Well, me too ss. I am praying for you. I wish an Amazon would open here, at this point in NJ I wish anything would open, lol.

The Governor is announcing a plan end of month for NJ, so I am hoping.

Meanwhile, back to the emails, I have kind of given up on twitter as I had some pretty nasty issues happen about two months ago and I don't need it, and it surely doesn't help the cause.

Keep on keep'n on. Miss seeing you here.

Snday thank you for the kind words...it's very hard to get a job in Southern California as well. I had my phone interview yesterday and got an email today saying I made it through to the next phone interview? We shall see how it goes...I've got both my fingers, toes & legs crossed!

It may be zero now, but when you walk in there make it 100 for them. Be proud of the work you did when you worked. Make it seem like it was just yesterday. I know how you feel I've been unemployed myself for 3 years now and know that you are not alone in your struggle to find work. We are all here to cheer you on. I wish you the best and pray the interview goes great! Smile Best wishes!!
