Amazon Expands Las Vegas, Nevada, Operations
According to company officials, to accommodate this growth, the company recently opened a new 30,000 square foot office in Town Square in downtown Las Vegas. This expansion will allow Amazon to more than double its corporate workforce in the area, with teams based in the new Las Vegas office supporting the company’s Human Resources organization.
“We are excited to create more jobs in Las Vegas and continue to invest in the city and its people,” said Tami Dennis, Site Lead of Amazon’s Las Vegas office. “We’ve opened the doors to our new office and we’re looking forward to meeting more of the city’s terrific talent as we look to support the diverse needs of our workforce.”
Amazon’s Las Vegas office currently has more than 100 employees specializing in managing leave of absence and accommodation services for the company’s employees across the United States. The teams working in Las Vegas are human resources specialists who act as the first point of contact for employees requesting a job accommodation, including American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters for Amazon employees and candidates applying for jobs at the company. Amazon is one of the only tech companies in the U.S. that has full-time ASL interpreters to support deaf or hard of hearing employees.
Amazon said it has created more than 3,500 full-time jobs and invested over $2.5 billion in Nevada since 2011, including customer fulfillment infrastructure and compensation to our employees.
