Amazon.com Inc. is looking to fill 7,000 jobs in 13 states.

The company says it will add 5,000 full-time jobs at its U.S. distribution centers, which currently employ about 20,000 workers who pack and ship customer orders.

The world's largest online retailer has been spending heavily on order fulfillment, a strategy meant to help the business grow, but one that has also weighed on profits. Amazon said last week it lost money in the second quarter even as revenue increased.

Warehouse jobs are available in Arizona, Delaware, California, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

The company is also adding 2,000 customer service jobs, including full-time, part-time and seasonal, in Kentucky, North Dakota, Washington and West Virginia. Work from home positions are available in Oregon, Washington and Arizona.
