UPS hiring employees for the holidays

UPS wants to hire 2,600 seasonal employees in the St. Louis area.

These are full- and part-time positions. You would help handle the delivery rush this holiday season. We're talking package handlers, drivers, driver helpers, personal vehicle drivers and more.

Additional benefits of a seasonal job include:

  • Over the last three years, about one-third of people hired by UPS for seasonal jobs were later hired in a permanent position. That opportunity for a permanent job is important to many. 
  • Nearly three-quarters of seasonal hires want their job to turn into a long-term position, according to a recent survey of Americans.
  • 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.

Permanent UPS jobs – including part-time jobs – come with benefits, including health care and retirement benefits and up to $25,000 in tuition assistance.

The hiring campaign is all online. UPS said applicants could even get a job offer within 30 minutes of applying. You can get started here.

Nationally, more than 100,000 workers will need to be hired.
