(Erlanger, Ky.) – There are Amazon buildings all over northern Kentucky. You can add another one to the list.

The giant online retailer opened their brand-new sort center on Erlanger Road on Thursday, according to a news release. 

Amazon says the 575,000-square-foot facility will be home to over 1,000 jobs, paying at least $15 per hour. The primary job function at the sort center is sorting packages before they are transferred to a delivery station.

"We’re proud to offer all associates the same industry-leading wage of at least $15 an hour, as well as a variety of benefits packages from day one. All full-time employees receive a comprehensive benefits package including full healthcare, a 401(k) with a 50 percent match, and access to continuing education via our Career Choice Program.  Our part time associates receive vision and dental benefits, life and AD&D insurance, as well as funding towards health insurance and access to Amazon’s innovative Career Choice program, which provides funding towards tuition for courses in high-demand fields. Seasonal part time associates have access to 401k, and life and AD&D insurance," reads a release from Amazon.

Amazon is doing every thing they can to keep employees safe during COVID-19. The company has invested more than $4 billion from June to April on COVID-19 related safety measures. This includes spending more than $800 million dollars in the first half of this year on safety measures like temperature checks, masks, enhanced cleaning, gloves, and sanitation stations.
