Amazon has 11,839 listed positions in the United States.
Amazon has job openings for 94 positions in states with a population lower than New Mexico.
Delaware (64)
DC (11)
Idaho (3)
Nebraska (7)
New Hampshire (5)
West Virginia (4)

The states with a population smaller than NM where Amazon is not currently hiring.
Alaska
Hawaii
Maine
Montana
North Dakota
Rhode Island
South Dakota
Vermont
Wyoming

The states with a population larger than NM where Amazon is not currently hiring
Arkansas
Mississippi

It seems pretty simple to me. Amazon is hiring in states with a large population or in proximity to coastal states with a large population. Amazon is not hiring in states with a small population and not close to large population centers.

Both have been USPS.

I live in Kentucky, and though there are multiple distribution centers nearby, Louisville is a UPS hub and we're prime members, I doubt we get our purchases any faster than you do.

For all of the zillion items amazon lists for sale on their site, I'd say fewer than 10% of our orders in the past year have been shipped from local fulfillment centers.

If anything, service has gotten worse here since they started hiring their own drivers, who are contractors rather than employees.

And on the subject of fulfillment centers, if articles like this are any indication, they're not good jobs, and from I've heard rarely pay a wage that you could live on.

Of course that's only an issue until the company can figure out how to automate the whole thing and eliminate those pesky humans.

A few of my recent orders were transported from Phoenix to Albuquerque before they were handed to the post office for delivery. They were brought to ABQ by an unnamed "shipping partner".

That "shipping partner" is actually Amazon's linehaul network. Amazon themselves trucks those packages from Phoenix to local post offices in the Albuquerque area for the USPS to deliver the last mile.

From that article...
Quote:
Amazon on Wednesday published a rare blog post rebutting the senator’s claims that thousands of Amazon employees rely on federal benefits to make ends meet. Those figures are “inaccurate and misleading,” the company said, because they include temporary workers as well as those who choose to work part time.

Amazon will pay you $18-25 per hour to make deliveries in your own car
Online retail giant is hiring to expand Amazon Flex 1-2 hour delivery service in Denver area

Quote:
Flex’s site says that people who deliver Prime Now packages — the one-hour delivery service — have “estimated earnings of $36-$50 per delivery block,” which includes tips, for two hours of work.

Quote:
Regular Amazon.com deliveries have similar “estimated earnings” of $72 per block of about four hours of work.

“Compensation varies,” Robinson said. “However, on average, participants can earn up to $25 per hour or more.”

I figured that was probably the case. Thanks for confirming!

Tucson is building a massive fulfillment center off of Kolb road. Proximity to rail is perfect there. City of Tucson was able to get RFP back to Amazon in a week. Do you think our city government could pull that off?

It's that kind of entitled mentality that keeps serious employers away from our area. It's not funny, because a lot of locals here genuinely feel that way.

In all fairness, yes, I think it could. Plenty of rail frontage between Gibson and I-25 on Albuquerque's southern frontier. The trouble is, Tucson's already got a heckuva lot more trains going through it every day because it's on the "main drag" of the UP line.

Albuquerque's a spur now, with all the serious bulk bypassing it at Belen. If rail and intermodal transshipment was critical to a local fulfillment center, Belen or thereabouts would be the logical place to put it, not Albuquerque.
