Amazon fulfillment center in Romeoville will hold a hiring event on August 2.

ROMEOVILLE - Amazon will be holding its "biggest hiring event of the year" on Aug. 2 around the country, including at its fulfillment center in Romeoville.

The company is hiring full-time and part-time positions. Full-time positions include medical benefits starting day one and tuition pre-payment for high demand careers.

The hiring event will also include holding tours of the locations. The tours will be held from 8 a.m. until noon local time. This is one of about a dozen hiring events Amazon is holding nationwide.

Amazon has opened or will open multiple fulfillment centers in Will County including two in Joliet and one under construction in Monee. When Gov. Rauner visited the Romeoville location in June, he lauded the company for aiming to create 8,000 jobs in Illinois by the end of 2018.

Candidates must be 18 years or older and follow a dress code:

•Long hair must be pinned or tied up to a length that does not exceed the top of the shoulder. Beards may not exceed three inches from the face without being tied up or netted.

•Extraneous articles hanging from clothing, such as chains or drawstrings, can cause a safety-risk and are prohibited.

•Guests are asked to wear flat, closed-toe and closed-heel shoes.

•Jewelry that dangles or protrudes from the body may come in contact with machinery and result in a safety hazard.

The fulfillment center is at 1125 W. Remington Boulevard in Romeoville. Interested candidates must bring identification.
