Amazon to hire 500 for Beloit distribution center
ROCKFORD — Amazon plans to hire 500 full-time employees to staff its massive distribution center just over the Wisconsin border in Beloit, the company said Monday.

The 1 million-square-foot facility is under construction on an 80-acre site in Beloit’s Gateway Business Park, less than 20 miles from Rockford. It is expected to open late in the third quarter of 2020 or early in the fourth quarter, according to the Rock County Development Alliance.

Employees will package and ship small items, such as electronics and books, alongside Amazon robots. The facility will offer $15 an hour minimum wage, along with health benefits and a 401(k) plan, according to the Beloit Daily News...
