Westfield couple finds love at Whitestown Amazon fulfillment center
They may not offer it online but the Amazon fulfillment center in Whitestown has plenty of love within its building. Several spouses and couples in the area work together at the facility including Brian Miller and Shannon Alcala of Westfield.
Each began working at Amazon in 2012 after Alcala graduated from Indiana University-Bloomington and Miller from IUPUI.
“We both worked on nights and had a project together,” Alcala said.
The couple said it was during a work outing with a group of managers when they connected.
“We talked a lot at work and out of work,” Miller said. “We started dating a month after that.”
“We told HR and Amazon has been so supportive. They really care about you professionally and personally,” Alcala said. “They’ve been extremely supportive of everything we’ve done.”
The couple dated for a year and a half and became engaged in May. They plan to be married Sept. 5 in Alcala’s hometown in Michigan.
“We’re thrilled,” she said. “The wedding planning is going great. We have everything planned but some last minute stuff.”
Alcala now works the day shift and Miller works the second shift at the center.
“We do to spend time together outside of work and on the weekends,” Miller said. “Shannon is on the floor managing the team and I’m in the office. We see each other in passing.”
Miller and Alcala said they are the third couple at the Whitestown center to date then become married that they know of since they started. They said another couple started dating the same time as them and are married and another will be wed in May.
