Amazon is looking for bright leaders to lead large non-exempt teams across our cutting-edge fulfillment network! This is not a corporate, office-based position.

What is fulfillment you ask? Fulfillment is how we refer to completing or fulfilling a customer’s order and the acts of picking, packing, shipping and delivering their order to meet or exceed their expectations! Our Operation’s workflow can be broken to three major lanes: first mile - where the product is housed and ready for your order; second mile - where your order is hauled to your area; and last mile - when the product is delivered to your door. Please note that all lanes have slight building variations, but one thing is constant, our vision and dedication to the customer. As a reminder, our fulfillment centers are fast paced environments where standing, walking, and having on-the-production floor conversations are common as a visible supply chain leader!
