Online retail giant Amazon.com Inc. plans to open a new fulfillment center operated by Amazon.com.azdc Inc. in Phoenix, AZ, during the third quarter of 2007.

The facility, located at 6835 Buckeye Road in Phoenix, will fulfill orders for products from Amazon's media categories, including books, DVDs, music and software.

"We're opening this new facility in Phoenix to support current and future growth," said Patty Smith, director of corporate communications for Amazon.com.  "It's a good location for us to be in.  We've got facilities throughout the US to be closer to customers in different locations and get product to them quicker."

The new facility aims to be one of the larger Amazon fulfillment centers in North America with about 600,000 square feet. Three hundred new full-time positions will come with the new center, with additional 1,000 - 1,300 temporary jobs during the 2007 holiday season.

The company is currently recruiting employees across various parts of the Amazon organization. Management opportunities include roles in buying, finance, human resources, operations and safety. Hourly positions are available in human resources, maintenance, process, shipping and receiving, and training.

Amazon will be conducting an open house for management roles on July 12, 2007 from 9:00am to 1:00pm at the Radisson City Center, located at 3600 N. Second Avenue in Phoenix, as well as a job fair for all hourly positions at the same location on July 16 and July 17 from 9:00am to 4:00pm on both days.
