The warehouse which was completed back in March of 2022, is set to open soon.

The Amazon warehouse project was approved by the town board in 2021 and the online retail giant was given several million dollars in tax breaks because it was going to bring in hundreds of higher-paying jobs to the area.

As of right now, according to a post on helpwanted.com, Amazon is hiring warehouse workers in the Hamburg area. The listing is for both full-time and part-time work. It doesn't say how much the company is paying for each position.
