Amazon announced yesterday plans to open a new 1 million-square-foot, state-of-the-art fulfillment center in Tracy, Calif., creating hundreds of full-time jobs with benefits at the site.

Amazon opened its first fulfillment center in California in San Bernardino last October, during which it flexed its philanthropic muscle by donating $25,000 to local nonprofits and announced the 700 new jobs that would come to the community. The company is also building a site in Patterson that is expected to open in summer of 2013.

At the Tracy facility, Amazon employees will engage with high-end technology while fulfilling customer orders. Amazon fulfillment center jobs pay on average 30 percent more than traditional retail jobs, excluding the stock grants that full-time employees receive that account for an average of 9 percent of base pay annually, the announcement said.

"This third new distribution center marks a commitment by Amazon of over 1,000 California jobs in the last year alone," Amazon said in the announcement. "We look forward to continuing our relationship with this world-leading brand and hope to build more opportunities for Californians in the future."

"I am honored and pleased that Amazon recognizes our streamlined business development efforts, prime location and resources available to meet the demands of their fulfillment center," said Tracy Mayor Brent H. Ives. "Amazon is a wonderful addition to our economic base and will provide hundreds of jobs for residents of Tracy."
