Assistant Manager

Physical Location: Peoria, Illinois

Do you enjoy breaking down and solving complex problems for the benefit of customers, focusing first on our customer and working backwards? If so, the Amazon operations team is looking for an experienced leader with a strong record of achieving results, to work closely with our retail and operations partners across the globe in order to effectively manage volume flows and fullness for our fulfillment centers and delivery stations. The role requires heavy index on dive deep, bias for action, and ownership.

Amazon obsesses over customers by offering a white glove service where we deliver TVs and other large items like furniture to customers’ homes. Not only do we deliver large parcels, we unpack, assemble, install and sometimes even do tests, hauling away old items as needed.

Our Assistant Managers are responsible for the day-to-day operations of an Amazon Delivery Station which includes inbound, outbound and sortation operations. Delivery Stations represent the last leg of our delivery network. Customer packages travel from our Fulfillment Centers to regional Sort Centers and finally end up at our local Delivery Stations where packages are sorted and dispatched directly to the customer via delivery service partners (couriers).
Assistant Managers will actively engage with site and regional operations leadership to implement new operational improvements and new services. We expect our managers to continually identify ways to improve our operations.
