FRESNO — Looking for a new job or know someone who is? Online retailer Amazon is building a reportedly 855,000-square-foot fulfillment facility in Fresno near Central and Orange, and they’re holding a three-day Hiring Fair to support it.
The Hiring Fair will take place at the Doubletree Hotel in downtown Fresno starting on Tuesday, Jan. 16, and running through Thursday, Jan. 18, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
