    UPS offers 100,000 jobs for the holiday season: 80% do not require an interview

    UPS, the package carrier giant, announced Wednesday that seeks to hire more than 100,000 employees for the upcoming holiday season.

    Through a statement, the company said that is looking for seasonal delivery driverspackage handlers, and full-time and part-time driver’s helpers.

    “UPS creates jobs that pay industry-leading wages and benefits, and rewards the people who stay,” UPS said.

    The company streamlined the digital process for hiring applicants in order to fill positions well before the holiday season begins. Holiday season volumes typically start to pick up in October and stay high through January.

    In general, the process only takes 25 minutes, which it only consists of completing an online application and then receiving an offer, according to Danelle McCusker Rees, president of human relations for UPS. That’s five minutes less than last year, plus 80% of seasonal positions don’t require an interview.

    Permanent positions will also be available in some areas to early applicants, according to UPS, which noted that almost 35,000 temporary employees obtained permanent positions last year.

    In the announcement of available vacancies, UPS assured that it offers “competitive salaries” for multiple shifts at hundreds of locations across the country.

    Seasonal drivers with UPS start at $21 per hour and tractor-trailer drivers earn up to $35 an hour. Starting package handler wages can range from $15 to $21 per hour.

    If the drivers become full-time employees, can earn an average of $95,000 per year with an additional $50,000 in contributions to health, welfare and pension benefits, UPS said.

    This week, the craft store Michael also announced that it is preparing for the Christmas season and announced the hiring of 15,000 jobs by the middle of this month.

    Hiring plans emerge when online shopping has slowed down after a pandemic-induced increase, but the numbers are still well above pre-pandemic levels.

    Employers in the United States created 315,000 jobs in Augustroughly what economists expected, down from an average of 487,000 per month over the past year, according to a government report last week.
