jobs for 7,000 going to 13 states

July 29, 2013 5:11:45 AM PDT Inc. is looking to fill 7,000 jobs in 13 states.

The company says it will add 5,000 full-time jobs at its U.S. distribution centers, which currently employ about 20,000 workers who pack and ship customer orders.

The world's largest online retailer has been spending heavily on order fulfillment, a strategy meant to help the business grow, but one that has also weighed on profits.

None of thejob openings appear to be in Illinois, but there are some warehouse openings in Indiana.
