Amazon is on a hiring spree. The company announced last week that they would be hiring at fulfillment centers across the country and today, the company announced that they will be opening a 500,000-square-foot fulfillment center in Sumner, Washington.
As rumors circulate about a new Amazon tablet and Kindle sales continue to grow (according to Amazon’s numbers last week), we can’t help but wonder how many Kindles will be handled by this new fulfillment center. It is only speculative though, as Amazon sells everything under the sun. Still, it is promising to think that eBooks aren’t hurting Amazon’s fulfillment centers from growing.
