UPS is primarily looking for package handlers, drivers, and driver-helpers. Those jobs have long been an entry point for permanent employment at UPS.

According to the UPS website, over the last three years, about a third of those hired by UPS for seasonal package handler jobs were later hired in a permanent position when the holidays were over, and about 138,000 UPS employees ( just about 1/3 of the company’s U.S. workforce) got their start in seasonal positions.
