Amazon’s delivery stations “offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own business delivering Amazon packages, as well as give independent contractors the flexibility to be their own bosses and create their own schedules delivering for Amazon Flex,” officials said.

“These new delivery businesses will be in addition to the more than 21,000 small- and medium-sized businesses, sellers and independent authors in Utah that are currently growing their businesses with Amazon,” Healy said.

Wages start at $15/hour and include benefits comprehensive health, vision and dental insurance; 401(k) with 50% match and up to 20 weeks of paid parental leave.

Officials also said they are taking steps to protect employees’ health during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“In these unprecedented times, Amazon remains committed to the health and safety of our employees, partners and the customers we serve,” Amazon officials said. “We know many people have been economically impacted as jobs in areas like hospitality, restaurants, and travel are lost or furloughed as part of this crisis, and we welcome anyone out of work to join us at Amazon until their past employer can bring them back.”

Interested candidates are encouraged to apply here or text SLCNOW2 to 77088 to sign up for text alerts.
