  • Over a third of past seasonal hires landed permanent jobs at UPS
  • For those displaced by COVID-19, UPS seasonal jobs offer an opportunity to launch a new career
  • Flexible shifts, full- and part-time positions available at thousands of locations
  • Applications available at upsjobs.com and at select UPS locations

UPS announced today that it expects to hire over 100,000 seasonal employees to support the anticipated annual increase in package volume that will begin in October 2020 and continue through January 2021.

“We’re preparing for a record peak holiday season. The COVID-19 pandemic has made our services more important than ever,” said Charlene Thomas, Chief Human Resources Officer. “We plan to hire over 100,000 people for UPS’s seasonal jobs, and anticipate a large number will move into permanent roles after the holidays. At a time when millions of Americans are looking for work, these jobs are an opportunity to start a new career with UPS.”

The company is filling full- and part-time seasonal positions – primarily package handlers, drivers, driver-helpers, and personal vehicle drivers – by offering competitive wages across multiple shifts in thousands of locations across the country.

Over the last three years, about 35% of people hired by UPS for seasonal package handler jobs were later hired in a permanent position when the holidays were over, and about 123,000 UPS employees – nearly a third of the company’s U.S. workforce – started in seasonal positions.

That opportunity for a permanent job is important to many. Nearly three-quarters (73%) of seasonal hires want their job to turn into a long-term position, according to a recent survey of Americans who hold, held or would consider a seasonal job.*

Through the company’s Earn and Learn program, eligible seasonal employees who are students can earn up to $1,300 towards college expenses, in addition to their hourly pay, for three months of continuous employment. UPS has invested nearly $670 million in tuition assistance – nearly $30 million a year since the program was established in 1997 – helping over 300,000 employees pay for their college education.

Interested applicants should apply at www.upsjobs.com.

Permanent UPS jobs – including part-time jobs – come with great pay and benefits, including healthcare and retirement benefits. At many UPS locations, part-time employees are eligible to receive up to $25,000 in tuition assistance through Earn and Learn.

This is great!

We need all the help we can get....unless it endangers the lives of our loved ones or the general public. Will UPS COVID test everyday or at least temperature check every driver and helper?

Will social distancing be enacted and enforced?

Obviously, Driver helpers will be a non-starter. (unless they are family members to the driver they will be jumping for)???

UPS already attempted to circumvent the common sense CDC guidelines in March and/or April regarding helpers.

UPS has a moral, ethical and legal responsibility to the public and UPS employees. " As always, our highest priority is to help ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers, and suppliers ... & ...

  • Compliance with applicable government regulations related to the containment of Coronavirus."

Social distancing is 100% possible while in the package car. 1 person on the car = absolute social distancing.

There is no need to have 2 people in the confined space of the cab of a package car. It is preposterous to have more than one person in that confined space.

Package car drivers may miss the added assistance of helpers this peak; but having helpers is not worth putting our elderly parents, immune compromised loved ones, and others at unnecessary risk of severe illness or death.
