1290 WJNO had reported that Amazon was going to build a new facility in Ruskin, Florida, on the west coast, south of Tampa. 

They are now hiring for hundreds of full time positions with what are being described as competitive wages and comprehensive benefits starting on "day one". 

These are full-time hourly positions in which associates will pick, pack and ship customer orders.  They do offer seasonal positions closer to the holidays as well.

No word yet on when the location will be up and running.
