Amazon is expanding in Indianapolis.

It’s part of the company’s plans to add 5,000 across the country. Jeffersonville, Ind., is also part of the strategy, which also includes cities in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and South Carolina. The company needs to add jobs to sustain the growing need for fulfillment centers. It already employs about 20,000 workers in that area.

Amazon said the jobs pay 30 percent more than traditional retail jobs. The positions include benefits like health care, 401(k) plans and stock awards. Workers will pick, pack and ship orders to customers.
