EUCLID, Ohio — Amazon has begun hiring people to fill more than 2,000 full-time positions ahead of its opening of the 650,000-square-foot fulfillment center in Euclid, located on the former site of the Euclid Square Mall.

The company will offer a $15 minimum wage with benefits, which include comprehensive health care, 401 (k) with 50 % match and up to 20 weeks paid paternal leave, among other benefits.

At the Euclid facility, employees will pick, pack and ship items like electronics, books, housewares and toys to customers.

“Amazon continues to demonstrate confidence in Ohio’s communities and people by growing throughout the state,” said JobsOhio President and Chief Investment Officer John Minor in a news release. “Amazon’s investment in Euclid will bring another new, high-tech facility and 1,000 full-time jobs to a vacant property.”

Job candidates interested in the positions must be 18 years or older and have a high school diploma or equivalent to be considered.

“We are thrilled to welcome Amazon and Seefried Industrial Properties to the City of Euclid,” said City of Euclid Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail in a news release. “The Euclid Square Mall site has been a prime target of our redevelopment efforts. While some saw a vacant mall, we saw an opportunity for growth and development."
