Amazon to hire 4,400 new employees in Maryland expansion

Amazon said it plans to hire up to 4,400 employees for its Maryland facilities as part of a major company-wide expansion accelerated by booming sales during the coronavirus pandemic. The Baltimore Sun reports that the new hires will add to the Seattle-based online retailer’s 17,500-person work force in Maryland.

Amazon has more than two dozen delivery, fulfillment and sortation centers in Maryland. Those include large facilities in Baltimore, Sparrows Point and Cecil County.

The company wants to hire a total of 100,000 new full- and part-time workers across the United States and Canada to handle shipping, packaging and customer orders.
