This local hiring initiative is part of the company’s national strategy to onboard over 100,000 seasonal employees to handle the increased demand during the festive season. In an effort to streamline the hiring process, UPS has implemented a digital-first approach, allowing the majority of applicants to complete the process, from application to job offer, in just about 20 minutes, and nearly 80% of the available positions do not necessitate an interview.

The available seasonal roles are primarily full- and part-time, consisting mainly of package handlers, driver helpers, and drivers with Commercial Driver’s Licenses (CDL). UPS is offering competitive hourly wages for these seasonal positions, starting at $21 per hour for package handlers and driver helpers, while driving jobs commence at $23 per hour.


Interested candidates looking to secure seasonal employment with UPS are encouraged to visit the company’s website to apply, enabling them to potentially leverage these temporary roles for future employment opportunities within the organization.
