Amazon adds another 400 jobs to Haslet facilityAmazon adds another 400 jobs to Haslet facilityhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=13302015-04-07T08:25:00Z2015-04-07T00:00:00Z

HASLET - Amazon is hiring 400 more workers at its 1.1 million-sf fulfillment center at 700 Westport Pkwy.

The center, which is near Alliance in Fort Worth, is expanding its staff for the third time. Amazon opened Haslet and another distribution center in Coppell in 2013.

Haslet ships the larger volume of goods. It’s where the small items such as books, health and beauty products and small toys are shipped, which is why its employment base is growing faster than Coppell’s, an Amazon.com spokeswoman explained.

Coppell, which is slightly smaller at 1 million sf, has 500 employees. Haslet will have about 1,500 full-time workers when this latest round of hiring is completed.

Amazon added the Dallas-Fort Worth area to its one-hour and two-hour Prime Now delivery service. It added same-day delivery capabilities in North Texas last summer.
