FAYETTEVILLE — Amazon is not just opening a new facility; it’s opening doors to a brighter future for the community. The brand-new Inbound Cross-Dock facility in Fayetteville is a significant step in the company’s expansion plans, bringing a wave of job opportunities to the region. Those interested in joining the Amazon team can apply online at and participate in this transformative journey.

The recruitment drive will unfold in phases, with new positions being posted every Friday evening. Each role offers a starting wage of $17 per hour and comprehensive benefits such as medical, dental and vision coverage from day one.


Situated in the Military Business Park at 6309 Bragg Blvd., the completed 1.3 million-square-foot facility is set to become a hub of employment, with more than 1,000 full-time and part-time positions anticipated at full operation. Amazon said all applications must be submitted online and no on-site applications will be accepted. Cumberland County’s eight library locations are available to assist those without internet access.

“This project is a tremendous milestone for our community,” said Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin. “The introduction of hundreds of new jobs will invigorate our local economy, support families, and drive the growth of our city.”

Cumberland County Board of Commissioners Chairman Glenn Adams echoed the sentiment, emphasizing the broader impact beyond job creation.

“When we’re able to bring economic development projects like this to Cumberland County, it’s not just an investment in buildings and equipment — it’s an investment in our community and workforce to provide life-changing opportunities,” Adams said.

Amazon’s expansion in Cumberland County extends beyond this latest facility. With the addition of this Inbound Cross-Dock facility to its existing last-mile delivery center at 1005 Dunn Rd., the retail giant is set to become one of the largest private-sector employers in the area. The move is expected to inject millions of dollars into the local economy through wages and property tax revenue to the city and county.

The successful realization of this project is attributed to the collaborative efforts of various stakeholders, including the City of Fayetteville, Cumberland County and Amazon.

Amazon is hiring transitioning military members, veterans, reservists, military spouses and military dependents 18 years and older for hourly warehouse positions. The company offers full-time, reduced-time and part-time roles to support a wide range of opportunities that work for veterans, active duty and military spouses.
