As it contends with a staffing shortage at its new warehouse in New York, Amazon is incentivizing potential employees financially with sign-up bonuses if they are willing to make certain concessions.

Amazon is seeking employees for the warehouse in the Hudson Valley near Stewart Airport in the town of Montgomery in Orange County, with a $3,000 bonus for recruits who begin working before Saturday, July 1, and agree to work select shifts.

The $3,000 bonuses that were advertised by Amazon in the spring are not a new tactic for the retail giant, though it is significantly higher than the usual incentives that have been listed for positions within the company in New York and New Jersey.

The fulfillment center spans more than 1,000,000-square-feet near the intersection of Route 17K and Route 747 has been in the works for more than a year. It is expected to employ more than 800 people when fully operational.

The facility will sit on 190 acres with more than 1,000 parking spaces, hundreds of trailer parking spaces, and a wastewater treatment plant.

According to Amazon, the center “will work alongside innovative technology to pick, pack and ship large customer items, such as bulk paper products, diapers, sports equipment, patio furniture, pet food, kayaks, and larger household goods.”
