Amazon Now Hiring for Hundreds of Roles to Support First Amazon Fresh Store in New Jersey
Amazon is now hiring for hundreds of full- and part-time employees for a new Just Walk Out-enabled Amazon Fresh grocery store that will open in Paramus, New Jersey. The store will be the first Amazon Fresh location in New Jersey.
Positions at the new store offer starting wages between $15 and $16.50 per hour depending on role type. New employees are offered a variety of benefits packages starting on their first day on the job as well as opportunities for career growth.
“I’m proud to bring hundreds of good jobs with benefits to the Paramus community as we prepare to welcome customers,” said Chris Boje, store manager of the Amazon Fresh location in Paramus. “Our new Amazon Fresh store was designed from the ground up to offer the local community with a seamless grocery shopping experience and low prices on a wide assortment of national brands and high-quality produce, meat and seafood.”
Amazon Fresh is hosting an in-person hiring event for this location on Wednesday, June 8 and Thursday, June 9 at the Marriott Saddle Brook in Saddle Brook, NJ.

“We’re excited to welcome Amazon Fresh to Paramus, especially during a time when access to high-quality, low-priced groceries is so important,” said Senator Joseph A. Lagana (Paramus). “This store will provide shoppers in the area with a new and innovative option for their grocery shopping and will also bring hundreds of jobs to the local community.”
“We’re thrilled that Amazon is opening its first Amazon Fresh store in New Jersey in Paramus,” said Paramus Mayor Richard LaBarbiera. “Not only will this new store provide fresh, low-priced groceries for shoppers in the area, but Amazon is also creating hundreds of jobs with good pay and benefits locally.”
Amazon Fresh is also hiring for hundreds of full- and part-time employees for its new store in Oceanside, NY. This will be the first Amazon Fresh location in New York and will offer local customers the same shopping experience as the Paramus location.
Amazon Fresh is a new grocery store that offers a seamless grocery shopping experience whether customers are shopping in-store or online. Customers can find everything they love about Amazon, such as consistent low prices, convenience, and great selection, along with delicious, prepared food offerings made in-store every day and a convenient in-store shopping experience.
One of the many benefits of working at an Amazon Fresh store is the opportunity to cross-train across the entirety of the grocery store. Grocery associates will learn everything from customer service, to stocking shelves, to cashiering, to picking and packing customer orders. Food service associates work in the store’s culinary area, preparing delicious, fresh food offerings for customers each day.
Amazon promotes from within; since the first Amazon Fresh grocery store opened in 2020, hundreds of employees have been promoted to roles with increased pay and responsibility. In 2021, a majority of store management positions were filled by employees promoted from hourly roles.
The Just Walk Out technology that will be offered at these stores is made possible by a combination of computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning, which automatically detects when products are taken from or returned to the shelves and keeps track of them in a virtual cart. When customers are done shopping, they can skip the checkout line and get going. Later, they’ll receive a receipt and charge to their Amazon accounts. Just Walk Out shopping is available to any customer with an Amazon account and traditional checkout lanes are also available for all shoppers.
