CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -- Amazon is expanding the full-time staff at its Chattanooga distribution center even before it ramps up hiring for its holiday Christmas season.

"We're hiring for hundreds of positions in Chattanooga to meet increased demand," said company spokeswoman Kelly Cheeseman. "We also expect to hire at our sites leading up to the holidays."

She wouldn't say exactly how many more people Amazon is now hiring, nor give the specific number of employees the Chattanooga facility will have after the new hires.

In February, when Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam visited the site, Amazon officials said it had 1,700 people at the 1 million-square-foot Enterprise South industrial park location.
