BAYONNE, NJ - Amazon’s new delivery station in Bayonne officially opened for business this week and welcomed associates inside the 188,000 square-foot building to celebrate its Day One of operation by offering what they say is highly competitive pay, benefits, and training programs for in-demand jobs.
In celebration of the Bayonne station launch, Amazon also donated $3,000 and more than 1000 items including food, PPE, and cleaning supplies to Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation supporting their efforts to help those experiencing food insecurity.
“We are looking forward to creating a long-term relationship with Amazon and are excited they have chosen to open up operations within our City,” said Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis.
The delivery station located 105 Avenue A will create more than 128 full and part-time associate jobs, all paying at least $15.75/hr., in addition to hundreds of driver opportunities for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex drivers.
According to Amazon officials delivery stations power the last mile of the company’s order process and help speed up deliveries for customers. Packages are shipped to a delivery station from neighboring Amazon Fulfillment and Sortation Centers, loaded into delivery vehicles, and delivered to customers.
Amazon prioritizes the safety and health of its employees and has invested millions of dollars to provide a safe workplace.
“Restoring the old Best Foods site to an active productive use while bringing jobs to our residents is a win for the City and Amazon,” said Council President Sharon Nadrowski.
Delivery stations offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own business delivering Amazon packages, as well as independent contractors the flexibility to be their own boss and create their own schedule delivering for Amazon Flex.
