UPS has set a goal to hire more than 100,000 people before their busy holiday season and will offer people jobs within 30 minutes of applying.
With the way the job market is going, competition for hiring workers is steep, and companies are using different tactics to try to recruit people.
Some have been offering higher pay, bonuses for joining, and dropping requirements like a high school diploma.
Matt Lavery, UPS’s global director of sourcing and recruiting, says this tactic is instant gratification for applicants.
Jobs needing to be filled include package handlers and driver helpers.
To do immediate hiring they have applicants submit all their paperwork during the application process to skip the interview. This shaves the time down by two weeks.
Most areas pay an average of $15-22 per hour.
