ATLANTA (WAVY) — UPS says it plans to hire almost 100,000 people to fill demand during the upcoming holiday season.
The delivery company says it needs package handlers to help deliver millions of pounds of cargo. They’re also looking for delivery drivers, including tractor-trailer drivers. Average pay for seasonal workers ranges from $10 to $30 an hour.
Last year, UPS hired 93,000 people for temporary jobs during its busiest season.
The company says about 37 percent of seasonal hires in the last three years were promoted to permanent full-time workers.
