Many cities across the U.S. may see a boost in manufacturing hires as Amazon recently announced its plans to expand shipping facilities in a number of different regions. USA Today reported that the company may hire up to 2,500 individuals, adding to it's nearly 120,000 employees already working in the U.S. In 2013, the company opened 20,000 positions in a wealth of industries, including shipping and sales. States looking for hires include Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina and Washington. 

In San Bernardino, Calif., Amazon has already begun to hire new workers. Miguel McQueen, deputy director of business services at the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board, told the Daily Press that the company, which has been working with the Workforce Investment Board, recently hired 155 people in the county. The two agencies have been collaborating to employ local workers since 2012 and have been successful thus far, McQueen said.

"We are delighted to recruit new staff for Amazon," McQueen told the source. "We have had phenomenal success over the past 18 months and look forward to finding good employees for the company in the future."

As the company continues to expand its operations, more facilities are expected to open and hire employees to meet the growing need, USA Today reported.
