UPS is Hiring About 95,000 People to Help Out During the Holidays

Because I live in Florida, snow doesn’t signal the approach of the holidays.

Rather, it’s the frequency of UPS trucks I see roaming my neighborhood. Those brown trucks could be Santa’s sleigh as far as I’m concerned. The “beep-beep” I hear each time the truck backs up is basically a Christmas carol.

Yeah, yeah. I’m totally feeding into the consumerism mentality that we need to get away from during the holidays, but there is a bright side to this.

UPS is on a seasonal holiday hiring binge.

The package delivery giant is working to fill nearly 95,000 seasonal positions worldwide from November to January.

Currently, over 2,000 seasonal positions are available on its job page.

If this isn’t the type of job you’re looking for, be sure to check out our Jobs page on Facebook. We post new opportunities there all the time.

What Type of Seasonal Jobs Does UPS Need Me to Do?

The jobs vary.

But a popular one is the driver helper. Basically you’ll ride along with drivers and help out with some heavy lifting.

And you won’t just be delivering packages; you’re also “delivering merriment and cheer throughout the holiday season,” according to the job listing.

Even better, the job is flexible: “It’s perfect for college students who return home (or remain on campus) during winter break. It’s a great opportunity for a stay-at-home parent looking for serious cash as the holiday season approaches.

Other positions include drivers, mechanics, package handlers and mechanics.

What Happens When the Season is Over?

You can go back to your life.

Or you could — and maybe should — consider a full-time job with UPS.

“Over the last three years, 35 percent of the people UPS hired for seasonal package handler jobs were later hired in a permanent position when the holidays were over,” UPS’s press release states.

With that, you’d get solid pay and benefits. These include a competitive salary; medical, dental and vision insurance; a discounted stock purchase plan; a 401(k); and tuition assistance.

How Can I Get In on the UPS Hiring Spree?

Head on over to UPS’s job page and search “seasonal.” You can narrow your search by looking in your city.

If there isn’t a job open near you yet, sign up for a job alert. You can enter your area of interest and location, and you’ll get a job delivered to your inbox.
