Amazon to start looking for SC workers again will again begin a search for thousands of full-time workers to fill positions at a $125 million facility in South Carolina, due to open in the fall.

Amazon said full-time hourly jobs are available in picking, packing and receiving/shipping. Management positions are available in operations, safety, human resources and technical support.

The company had been awaiting the resolution of a tax dispute.

The deal gave Amazon a 4 1/2 year exemption from collecting sales tax from South Carolina's online shoppers in exchange for the jobs.

Some state Democratic legislators have blasted Gov. Nikki Haley for not signing legislation that brought Amazon and 2,000 promised jobs to South Carolina.

Sen. Joel Lourie of Columbia welcomed the online retailer Wednesday after the bill Haley opposed became law without her signature. But Lourie says Haley's public opposition almost torpedoed the deal brokered under her predecessor.

Under the measure passed by the South Carolina Senate, Amazon gets a 4 1/2 year exemption from collecting sales tax from South Carolina's online shoppers. The online retailer must include a clause in purchase confirmation e-mails stating that shoppers may owe the state sales tax.

Individuals interested in applying for hourly positions can visit or call 803-818-3148 for further information.
