Amazon today announced the opening of its first reverse logistics center in Slovakia, creating over 1000 new, permanent jobs over the next three years. Investment in the logistics center follows successful Amazon operations in Bratislava, where the company has already employed over 850 Finance, Account Management, HR, seller support specialists and analysts in its Corporate Office in Bratislava and continues to hire. All Amazon employees receive a very attractive salary, benefits package and career progression opportunities. Amazon offers traditional, upward career paths that allow people to develop themselves for management roles. Amazon also runs an innovative program called Career Choice, which pre-pays up to 95% of tuition fees for entry-level employees with a 1 year tenure over four years.

The new center will be over 60,000 sq. m and will support growing customer demand across Europe as well as supporting the independent businesses selling on Amazon Marketplace using Fulfillment by Amazon. At the Sered facility, planned to open in Q3 2017, employees will assess the condition of products that either couldn’t be delivered or were returned to Amazon.
“Bringing our logistics operations to Slovakia demonstrates how much confidence we have in investing here. We will find here a wealth of employees who are open to new experiences and opportunities in a company that is driven by improving customer experience and innovation. We greatly appreciate all the support we are receiving from both national and local authorities to make Slovakia a great place in which to invest” said Roy Perticucci, Vice President of Amazon Operations in Europe.
"This significant investment by a renowned company is a further proof that Slovakia is attractive for investors. Besides the obvious benefits for the economy and jobs, I consider it important that the project will work without state investment support," said the Minister of Economy, Peter Žiga. ”
“We are pleased that such an innovative global company as Amazon has chosen our industrial zone, Sered – South, for their investment. I believe it will have a vastly positive impact on the development of our region, especially from an economic perspective," said the Mayor of Sered, Martin Tomčányi.
“Across Europe, Amazon is continuing to invest in new infrastructure and employment opportunities to ensure we continue to grow and meet the needs of our customers,” said Roy Perticucci, Vice President Europe Customer Fulfillment. “We are creating job opportunities with choice and flexibility that appeal to the widest range of individuals, from those that want a full working week to those that just want to work for a few hours. All our jobs offer competitive salaries and benefits packages and I am pleased to be welcoming more people to our operations in 2017.”
