    Last year FedEx paid seasonal employees $20hr to sort and play jumper for drivers.

    Anybody know what UPS is paying this year for seasonal employees?

    It will be less than 20 an hour I can tell you that.

    I don't know about package handlers, but helpers got $15 in my building last year. I bet it'll be the same this peak as well.

    I didn't know FedEx had helpers. I saw plenty of FedEx trucks out on route last year, and not one of them had more than one person in it. Then again, those FedEx guys were stopping on the wrong side of the road, leaving the engine running during stops, and driving with the bulkhead door open, so who's to say there wasn't somebody back there when the vehicle was in motion too?

    FedEx paid jumpers $20 an hour? Isn't that more than they pay their drivers?

    Jumpers make $8.50 in the southern region.
    Inside starting wage is $10.

    Yup. That is much more than they pay new drivers. Last year was the first year they had the jumpers, that I know of. There were some guys that showed for the AM sort, jumped, then the PM sort, making HUGE bucks for the 30 days they were there. Since I'm no longer with Express I figured I'd join the party this year unless UPS paid comparable bucks then I'd go there since they're closer to my house.

    I was seasonal in the South in 2013 & 2014 and the first 2 weeks of 2015. The pay was always $8.50 except the last 2 checks for working in January of this year were $10.50. Not sure if it went up for 2015 or why the increase for those 2 checks.

    $8 in NY. At least once a year someone decides they're better off just keeping the uniform to run a home invasion robbery.

    They bumped our helper pay to starting part time rate.

    I thought my center manager was gonna pee his pants from joy when he announced this because maybe we can get them to stay more than a week this year.

    Expect minimum wage pay rate at UPS seasonal or not.

    Excactly, but in a few years he'll still be making $20 an hour and you will be making almost double that. [emoji6]
