(Atlanta, GA, Tuesday, November 7, 2017) – UPS is in the thick of a push to hire about 95,000 seasonal employees to support the anticipated holiday surge in package volume through January 2018.

The full and part-time seasonal positions – primarily package handlers, drivers and driver-helpers – are not only a way to earn some extra cash, they’ve also long been an entry point for a permanent job when the holiday rush is over. Many senior executives started their careers as part-time employees, including CEO David Abney.

Spokesperson Dan McMackin explains how interested job seekers can easily apply for holiday season opportunities.

SOUNDBITE #1:

WE OFFER FLEXIBLE SHIFTS AND FULL- AND PART-TIME POSITIONS. IF YOU ARE A STUDENT, A WORKING MOM OR JUST LOOKING TO MAKE EXTRA MONEY FOR THE HOLIDAYS, WE HAVE A JOB FOR YOU. INTERESTED JOB SEEKERS CAN EASILY APPLY FOR SEASONAL OPPORTUNITIES ON OUR WEBSITE.

SOUNDBITE #2:

OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS, THIRTY-FIVE PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE HIRED FOR SEASONAL PACKAGE HANDLER JOBS WERE LATER HIRED IN A PERMANENT POSITION ONCE THE HOLIDAYS WERE OVER. IN ADDITION TO GREAT PAY AND BENEFITS, PERMANENT PART-TIME EMPLOYEES IN COLLEGE CAN RECEIVE UP TO $25,000 IN TUITION ASSISTANCE THROUGH THE COMPANY’S EARN AND LEARN PROGRAM.
