What is working at UPS like?

A seasonal job at UPS is like no other. UPS delivers millions of packages throughout the year—and during the holiday period, volume is even higher. It’s fast-paced work that requires stamina, an eye for detail and teamwork. But even if you’re out on the road delivering packages on your own, you’ll never be alone. We depend on our seasonal workers to get us through the holidays and will support you as strongly as we do our permanent team.

How much do positions pay? What benefits are available?

Pay varies. We encourage you to carry out a job search on and click on one that interests you to find out the specific details about that role, including wage rate.

You can select your start date for the warehouse workers/package handler and driver helper positions once you successfully complete your online application. The season usually runs through the week of Christmas and up to January 15, 2022 depending on need.
