The Amazon delivery station in Dublin is celebrating its first Christmas. The 7,000 square metre building has been fully operational and serving customers across Dublin since October.
The delivery station at Northwest Logistics Park Kilshane Park, Ballycoolin has created 20 permanent jobs since opening offering competitive pay, comprehensive benefits and leading training and development opportunities in a safe, modern and engaging work environment.
The opening of the delivery station in Dublin has also created new driver opportunities for independent delivery service partners and Amazon Flex delivery partners.
Speaking ahead of the site’s first Christmas, Amazon Dublin Delivery Station Manager, Tiarnan Brennan, said:
“We’re excited to celebrate our first Christmas in Dublin. The team at Amazon in Dublin is ready to deliver for our customers ahead of a great festive shopping season, having also created local job opportunities across a wide range of disciplines in a safe and welcoming environment.”
One of Amazon Dublin’s employees who’ll be helping deliver for customers this Christmas is Pablito Di Pizzo.
Before working for Amazon, Pablo worked as a barista and bartender in Dublin. He decided to apply for a job at Amazon because his friend, who was already an employee, spoke highly of the company. Pablo enjoys his role at Amazon because he feels valued and respected.
He said: “I receive excellent treatment from my managers and supervisors. They care about me and always want to know if I am well and happy. I feel valued, listened to and that motivates me to be my best at work.”
He added: “I joined Amazon because the company offers competitive pay, fantastic benefits and a host of training and development programmes to help me further my career. I’m excited that our delivery station in Dublin is now open and I’m looking forward to helping put smiles on our customers’ faces this Christmas.”
Festive prize giveaways, a golden ticket competition and a festive food truck are just some of the things taking place throughout November and December as the delivery station team delivers for customers this Christmas.
