    Seasonal Employment & Tuition Assistance?

    My question is can I work seasonally, meaning all Summer, Holiday Season, & Spring but still get tuition assistance? My position would be package handler.

    Does UPS even higher seasonally? If not, do they allow store transfers?

    Insight- College student, looking for ways to pay off higher-education costs. Need enployment, but can only work a few months out of the year due to college dorming.

    Thanks,
    Duke

    I'd doubt it, but all I've heard is you have to work from beginning to the end of semester.

    I don't see how UPS could work for you with that availability. You should check out a local Home Depot, Lowe's, or anything else with a Garden Center. Those companies are busiest in the spring and summer and hire a lot of temps for specifically that reason. When I worked at Home Depot we hired a bunch of college kids over the summer to handle the work and they were very flexible about it.
