says it plans to open new fulfillment centers in Akron and the Toledo, Ohio area creating more than 2,500 full-time jobs.

The online retailer announced on Monday that the planned 700,000 square-foot centers will be Akron and Rossford, Ohio.

With the assistance of robots, the workers will pick, pack, and ship small items to customers such as books, electronics, and toys.

According to Amazon, those hired will go through safety training and coaching and will have access to continuing education opportunities in which the company will pre-pay up to 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a career at Amazon.

The jobs start at $15 an hour along with full medical, vision, and dental insurance as well as a 401(k) with 50 percent match starting on the first day of work. Amazon says it offers up to 20 weeks of maternal and parental paid leave and benefits which give new parents flexibility with their growing families.

“These jobs will be a boon for our local economy here in Summit County and across Northeast Ohio,” said Congressman Tim Ryan. “Today’s announcement is a testament to our talented workforce and tight-knit community – none of this would be possible if we weren’t in this together.”

A representative from tells 21 News that a timeline for the centers has not been announced.
