ONE-STOP CAREER CENTER:
TRENTON- Knowing that Mercer County has a talented and eager pool of potential employees, Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes, along with the Mercer County One-Stop Career Center, has been working with Amazon to begin filling its ranks for the soon-to-open Amazon Fulfillment Center in Robbinsville.
"Amazon's grand opening is right around the corner, and over the next few months they'll be looking for qualified candidates to fill a number of positions," said Hughes.
The Mercer County One-Stop Career Center at 26 Yard Ave., Trenton, will also help match job seekers already in its database with possible careers at Amazon. Beginning Friday, March 28, Amazon will accept applications for its Dock Clerk and Trainer positions and in late April will begin filling Fulfillment Associate and Lead Fulfillment Associate positions. Job applications along with job descriptions and company information can be found under related links on the county webpage or simply by clicking here.
"The Mercer County One-Stop has an established connection to a number of talented people in our region who might find themselves to be a good fit for a career at Amazon, and my administration is building a strong partnership with Amazon to connect those people with good-paying jobs," Hughes said.
Mercer County One-Stop Career Center is actively supporting Amazon's recruiting and sourcing activities, and the Mercer County Economic Development Office has arranged for Amazon to conduct live interviews in Mercer County in the coming weeks. Potential candidates who have successfully completed Amazon's online application and are advanced by Amazon's job fulfillment team will be invited to interview locally.
Amazon indicates to Executive Hughes that not all open roles have been posted and that potential employees should check back often. Mercer County on its website will update the Amazon links as new information is available.
"Candidates who might not qualify for the Dock Clerk and Trainer positions should not be disappointed,'' said Hughes, "as Amazon indicates it will gradually fill hundreds of other positions as it builds its inventory at the Robbinsville site."
