me to be able to create. It’s located at the gateway to North Las

This delivery station is Amazon’s 13th operations site in Nevada
with additional locations in Las Vegas, Henderson, and Reno.
Delivery stations power the last mile of Amazon’s order process and
help speed up deliveries for customers. Packages are shipped to a
delivery station from neighboring Amazon fulfillment and sortation
centers, loaded into delivery vehicles, and delivered to customers.
Delivery stations offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build
their own business delivering Amazon packages, as well as
independent contractors the flexibility to be their own boss and
create their own schedule delivering for Amazon Flex. This station
currently works with four Delivery Service Partners. This location
also features an Amazon Hub Lockers+ onsite which offers customers
a fast, safe and convenient way to pick up or return items
purchased on Amazon.com.
Amazon leverages its scale to help support local communities.
Since 2010, Amazon has invested more than $6 billion in Nevada and
since beginning operations in the state in March 1999, Amazon has
created more than 21,000 jobs in Nevada in its operations,
logistics, corporate and technology functions. Amazon also pledged
to invest over $700 million to provide upskilling training for
100,000 U.S. employees for in-demand jobs. The programs will help
Amazon team members from all backgrounds access training to move
into highly skilled roles across the company’s corporate offices,
tech hubs, fulfillment centers, retail stores, and transportation
network, or pursue career paths outside of Amazon.
On top of Amazon’s industry-leading $18 per hour average
starting wage, the company offers full-time employees comprehensive
benefits including full medical, vision, and dental insurance as
well as a 401(k) with 50 percent match starting on day one. Amazon
prioritizes the safety and health of its employees and has invested
millions of dollars to provide a safe workplace. The company also
offers up to 20 weeks of maternal and parental paid leave and
innovative benefits such as Leave Share and Ramp Back, which give
new parents flexibility to support their growing families.
