The hiring comes with an anticipated holiday increase in package volume that begins in November and continues through January.

The full- and part-time seasonal positions -- primarily package handlers, drivers, and driver-helpers -- have long been an entry point for permanent employment at UPS. The company says about 1/3 of those hired seasonally in the past three years now have permanent jobs with the company.
