UPS introduces an expedited hiring process. Get a job offer in 30 minutes- Prairie Public

Some employers are desperate to find workers for the holiday season, so they're trying all sorts of things to fill positions, including hiring new workers in 30 minutes or less. NPR's Andrea Hsu has the story.

ANDREA HSU, BYLINE: At 6 p.m., the UPS hub in Westchester, Pa., is a bustling scene. There's a line of brown delivery trucks zooming in and out. Thousands of packages travel along conveyor belts and slide down chutes.

CHRIS BOOTS: We're sorting them, we're separating them by zip codes and where they need to go and reloading the trucks.

HSU: Chris Boots started at UPS three months ago as a package handler after losing his job as an event planner at the start of the pandemic. His timing was good; in late August, UPS introduced an expedited hiring process.

BOOTS: Yeah, it was actually very convenient.

Doesn’t play well with others…
Faster they hire, the faster they quit. The turnover has to be staggering. In the end it’s just a numbers game I guess.
