UPS is still hoping to hire an additional 1,200 people for the holiday season this year in Dallas-Fort Worth, a spokesperson said.
Open positions include tractor trailer drivers, driver helpers and package handlers. Driver jobs start at $21 per hour, while pay for package handlers and driver-helpers starts at $14.50 per hour.
The company’s Earn and Learn program also offers seasonal employees who are students the chance to earn up to $1,300 towards their college expenses if they continuously work with the company for three months, the spokesperson said.
Nationwide, UPS expects to hire about 100,000 seasonal employees this year. In September, the company had announced they were looking to hire about 5,150 positions in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
The employees will help with the expected "annual increase in package volume" around the holidays through January, according to the spokesperson.
More than a third of the company's seasonal workforce tends to go on to permanent positions within UPS, the spokesperson said, which offer benefits like healthcare, tuition assistance, and retirement plans for those in both full-time and part-time work.
