Hiring process down to 25 minutes
Package delivery service UPS plans to hire more than 100,000 seasonal employees ahead of the year-end holiday rush. The company made the announcement last week.
UPS noted it has streamlined its hiring process, and it now takes 25 minutes for most people to go from filling out an online application to receiving a job offer. The company said nearly 80% of seasonal positions do not require an interview.
The company is filling full- and part-time seasonal positions, primarily seasonal delivery and commercial drivers license drivers, package handlers and driver helpers. Permanent positions are also available in some areas for those who apply early.
UPS also reported that nearly 35,000 seasonal employees earned permanent positions following the 2021 holidays. A full-time UPS package delivery driver makes an average of $95,000 per year plus an additional $50,000 in contributions to health, wellness and pension benefits.
