    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.

    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.
