BATON ROUGE — On Thursday, the new Amazon facility in North Baton Rouge will host a hiring session to answer questions about open job positions.

The new facility will employ more than 1,000 full time employees with a pay starting at $17 an hour.

The facility is not just bringing new jobs to the region, it's also making a big impact on the economy and revitalization of District 6.

We've seen Tropical Cafe come here, we've seen a car wash to the west and to the east of the facility. We've also seen other retailers expand their operations. We have Starbucks that recently came up. We have Raising Cane's that expanded their capacity with their drive thru. We seen the economic impact from a commercial side and residential side in this area," Metro Councilman Cleve Dunn Jr. said.
