UPS is looking to hire more than 1,200 temporary workers in the Metro Detroit area to help them get packages delivered this Christmas season. About one-third of the needed drivers and two-thirds of the necessary package handlers have already been hired. You had better be quick if you are hoping for a job. Who knows? That temporary job might just turn into full-time work if you're lucky. Competition for the jobs is fierce given the state of Michigan's economy.
The Detroit News reports -
The only requirements for applicants are that they be at least 18 years old, able to lift 70 pounds and have authorization to work in the United States.
Starting pay ranges from $8.50 to $9.50 per hour for package handlers and $14.70 for drivers. Job seekers can only apply online at www.upsjobs.com.
