Amazon has a bunch of full-time jobs open

They're all full-time jobs. And there are a lot of them available.

Amazon was looking to hire a whole bunch of people a couple months ago for the holiday season. And now they're hiring even more.

The company is hiring for an additional 1,000 full-time jobs at its Shakopee facility, a company spokesperson confirmed to GoMN Wednesday. They said that's on top of the 1,500 full-time positions already there, and comes because of increased demand.

Here are all the job listings for Amazon in Minnesota.

The full-time fulfillment associate in Shakopee requires scanning and unloading shipments from trucks, operating carts and dollies, and being on your feet a lot.

It's $13.50 an hour, with health care benefits on day one, a 401k, holiday and overtime pay, paid time off, and more. You've got to be at least 18 years old with a high school diploma or equivalent.

(Also: There are those Amazon job ads you see locally on TV or before some online videos, where the guy talks about how everything they do has a rhythm – we'd link to it, but can't find it online on its own anywhere.)

Amazon's presence in Minnesota

Since opening that Shakopee warehouse, Amazon's services in Minnesota have quickly accelerated.

We've got free same-day delivery for Prime members, restaurant food delivery, booze to your door service, and more.

Here's a look inside one of Amazon's fulfillment centers:

The company's warehouse practices have been criticized in the past.

Back in 2011, workers across the country complained about how hot it was in the massive warehouses, the Seattle Times reported.

Bloomberg earlier this year detailed how Amazon works to prevent theft, which came across to some as blatantly scaring people.

And Gizmodo is asking people to submit their "horror stories" from working at an Amazon warehouse.
