Amazon says it is hiring more than 2,500 full-time workers.

The positions are located at order fulfillment centers around the United States.

Amazon.com plans to announce Wednesday that the jobs are available in Chester, Va., and Petersburg, Va.; Coffeyville, Kan.; Columbia, S.C.; Dupont, Wash.; and Murfreesboro, Tenn.

The company says the new jobs come after it hired more than 20,000 people last year.

Amazon says the median income for people working at those facilities is higher than at traditional retailers.
