(Undated) -- UPS plans to hire 400 seasonal employees in the Des Moines area. UPS will have a big hiring push this Thursday thru Saturday. Positions are full and part-time, mainly package handlers, drivers, and driver-helpers. UPS is giving current employees 200-dollars for every eligible employee referral. UPS says over the past three years, about one-third of those hired by UPS for seasonal package handler jobs were later hired in a permanent position after the holidays.
UPS wants to hire 60,000 employees during the three-day hiring blitz this week.
Nearly a month before Black Friday and Cyber Monday officially kick off the holiday shopping season, the UPS Brown Friday event includes more than one local hiring event as well as virtual events on UPSJobs.com/Brown Friday that will support more than 1,200 locations across the U.S.
“UPS Brown Friday has become an annual tradition,” said Chief Human Resources Officer Darrell Ford. “For tens of thousands of Americans, it’s an opportunity to land one of the country’s best seasonal jobs, with the potential to turn into a career. Many of those who attend one of our job fairs through Saturday will be hired by Monday, and many of those hired will be offered permanent jobs when the holidays are over.”
