Over 4,300 applications have been filed for Amazon's two fulfillment centers in Hamilton and Bradley counties in just two days, according to the company.

Amazon plans to hire more than 1,400 full-time workers and more than 2,000 part-timers at the Enterprise South industrial park site and another center in nearby Bradley County.

Amazon is investing about $139 million in the two Southeast Tennessee sites.
