Amazon is hiring a number of employees in its warehouses, and the company is already talking about a new “amazing experience” at its Seattle HQ.
The company is also working to bring back its AmazonFresh delivery service to its Seattle and Austin warehouses, as well as adding another location in San Francisco and expanding its warehouse network in the Los Angeles area.
While the company hasn’t announced any new hires, its chief executive Jeff Bezos said he is “very confident” the company can “get the job done.”
But Bezos said Amazon’s workforce is “changing at an alarming rate.”
“There are people that work for Amazon and have never worked at Amazon before that have to learn a new technology and start working with other people and with Amazon.
So we’re going to have to find a way to make sure we’re able to bring these people here,” he said.
Bezos added that the company has been making “great progress” on its plans to bring AmazonFresh back to its warehouses.
He said that, “We’re in the process of moving from our warehouse system to a system that’s actually working.”
In an interview with CNBC last week, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos acknowledged that Amazon has been growing its shipping operations, but said that the growth of the company’s shipping fleet “has slowed significantly.”
Amazon has struggled with the growth in its Amazon Prime service in recent years, as more and more customers have moved their purchases to the service.
Amazon Prime membership fees have also grown over the past few years, and Amazon Prime memberships have increased by more than 2 million in the past three years.
The growth in Amazon Prime has meant that Amazon’s warehouses have been full, and some employees have been laid off as the company tries to bring its shipping fleet online.
Amazon has been building warehouses in a variety of cities around the country, and its Seattle headquarters has seen the most growth in the region.
In a recent article, The Wall Street Journal reported that Amazon was looking to hire more than 30 new employees.
The company has said that it is looking for people to work in its Seattle warehouse and its Austin warehouse, which currently hold over 300,000 items.
The hiring of the additional workers could be another sign of progress for Amazon’s efforts to bring Prime to the U.S.
Beams said that Amazon is planning to start shipping Prime packages in April, though he wouldn’t go into details about the timeframe for that.
