Amazon is now hiring workers for positions at two new Metro Detroit warehouses in Pontiac and Huron Township.

Amazon fulfillment centers in Pontiac and Huron Township are hiring for warehouse team members and are both offering sign-on bonuses of up to $1,000.

Officials said Monday that Pontiac’s new fulfillment center is ramping up operations and hiring more staff. Work on a new “XL” fulfillment center in Huron Township -- where extra heavy or bulky items will be stored -- has been underway since the end of 2020, and the hiring process has now begun, officials said. It is unclear when the warehouse will officially open.

New employees at the Pontiac and Huron Township locations can reportedly earn a sign-on bonus of up to $1,000 and a $100 benefit on the first day of work if the new hire is already vaccinated for COVID-19.

Note: The Huron Township job listing can be found within the Romulus job listing.
