Ever wonder how that product in your online shopping cart gets from Amazon to you? Now you can find out by visiting our Jacksonville fulfillment center.

If you are imagining a warehouse filled with handcarts and all the books in one place and apparel in another, picture this: orange robots balancing towers of goods twirling in what looks like a choreographed dance across shiny concrete floors, miles of conveyor belts and ramps carrying inventory across the building, and shipping labels practically flying onto boxes, blown by puffs of air.

On the hour-long tour, you'll see each part of the process and learn about some of the roles and benefits available for associates at fulfillment centers, including details on the following: Career Choice, a program that offers 95% prepaid tuition and fees for coursework in high-demand career areas, where a holiday job can lead, and how on-the-job training can lead to a tech job without college.
