While some retailers are trimming their operations, one is on a hiring spree.

FOX's Rich Denison reports:

Online giant Amazon.com is hiring 100,000 people across the country over the next year and a half. The retailer says they are full time jobs with benefits.

Many will be at fulfillment centers currently under construction in several states, including California, Texas and Florida. Officials with Amazon say over the past five years, the company has expanded its U.S. workforce by 150,000 people.
