These fulfillment centers will have about 1,500 people working in Hamilton while 1,000 will work in Ajax. Fulfillment centers are big warehouses where Amazon holds most of the products and ships them out to customers, sometimes the same day you place an order.
Right now, Amazon has 10 fulfillment centers in Ontario and 6 in the rest of Canada.
Amazon continues to hire people around the world, topping 1 million employees, and is now only second to Walmart for number of people hired.
