HASLET - Amazon.com is hiring about 450 full-time positions in addition to the 1,500 people that are already employed there.
These jobs are part of 6,000 that Amazon said it needs to fill at 19 of its more than 50 fulfillment centers in the U.S.
In April, Amazon said it needed to hire 400 more people at its 1.1 million-sf facility in Haslet, which is bigger than its Coppell center. Both opened in 2013.
Haslet — which is near Alliance in Fort Worth — handles the bigger volumes because it is where small items are shipped whereas big items like TVs and outdoor grills are shipped from Coppell.
Dallas-Fort Worth was one of the first markets where Amazon offered its one-hour and two-hour Prime Now delivery service.
