UPS to hire for packing/shipping jobs in San Antonio

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

As the holiday season approaches, UPS has decided to hire for packing and shipping jobs in San Antonio, and other locations around the U.S.

UPS said there will be five delivery days within the 2013 peak season where UPS will surpass peak day 2012. To handle the increase in volume, UPS will hire 55,000 seasonal employees across the U.S. to work as drivers, helpers, package sorters, loaders or unloaders.

UPS expects to pick-up over 34 million packages globally on its peak day, December 16. There are 26 shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, six fewer than last year making it the most compressed holiday season since 2002. Overall, UPS expects peak season daily volume to increase by 8% this year.
