Amazon said Thursday the newly created full-time jobs are for positions at fulfillment centers in Haslet, Coppell, and its newest facility in southern Dallas.

“Amazon keeps delivering for this area,” said Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings. “This year alone in Dallas-Fort Worth they have made several large hiring announcements, opened a new facility in Dallas, and are now announcing 2,000-plus new jobs. We are proud to have Amazon in this community and applaud their continued growth and contributions to the area’s economic development.”
