UPS TO HIRE ABOUT 100,000 FOR HOLIDAY SEASON
• Flexible shifts, full- and part-time positions available at thousands of locations
• Over a third of seasonal hires land permanent jobs at UPS after the holidays
• Tuition reimbursement now available for seasonal positions at many locations
ATLANTA, Sept. 9, 2019 – UPS (NYSE: UPS) announced today that it expects to hire about 100,000 seasonal employees to support the anticipated annual increase in package volume that will begin in November and continue through January 2020.
That's enough people to populate a city like Erie, Pa.; Albany, N.Y.; Greeley, Colo.; or San Angelo, Texas.
“We expect another record Peak season this year, with daily package deliveries nearly doubling compared to our average of 20 million per day,” said Jim Barber, chief operating officer. “In order to make that happen, once again we’re recruiting more than 100,000 people for some of the country’s best seasonal jobs.”
The full- and part-time seasonal positions – primarily package handlers, drivers and driver-helpers – have long been an entry point for permanent employment at UPS. Many senior UPS executives, including Chairman and CEO David Abney and other members of the company’s senior leadership team, started their UPS careers as part-time employees.
