    I was hired as a seasonal driver. Last week on Christmas Eve, I was told to call in on the following Monday to see if there would be work. So far two days in a row they say there is no work. I have no idea if they are just giving me the brush off or if it could actually have slowed down that much.

    I was delivering to mostly commercial stops. Did I do something wrong?

    NO, Your seasonal employment is almost over nothing you did wrong.

    First of all, you did nothing wrong (that we know of). The week between Christmas and New Year's is usually pretty light so some low seniority drivers are laid off. Before giving up hope of not driving, wait to see what the new year brings. I'll be honest with you though, you are probably not going to work. Seniority is the coin of the realm at UPS and you have none.

    I never understood how ups can hire a bunch of seasonal for peak and for the summer season by listing it on monster. com. Arent they suppose to put bids up before they hire outside help. How do they get around thiis.

    UPS most likely is not behind this. Temp services are notorious for posting other companies job offers as a means to get people into their offices. It's the classic bait and switch tactic.

    UPS is behind it.

    So what would be the logic behind it, when UPS just normally hires off of their careers website?

    Must be a regional thing, no seasonals hired here in summer or during peak.

    Dude...you do realize UPS is involved in post- incarceration employment workshops in certain prisons in order to attract newly paroled individuals for Christmas seasonal help?

    Not everybody thinks "Oh UPS!" when searching for jobs. When you put it on other sites you get more visibility and hopefully more applicants.
