UPS plans to hold job fairs this Friday Oct. 19 from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at its facilities at 3772 Pleasantdale Rd. in Doraville, at 1300 Old Ellis Rd. in Roswell, at 255 Southfield Pkwy in Forest Park, and at 215 Marvin Miller SW in Atlanta.
Those interested can also apply online at UPSjobs.com for part-time and full-time seasonal positions.
The positions available include package handlers, drivers and driver-helpers.
The company says of the seasonal workers it hires, typically about 35 percent are later hired into permanent positions after the holidays. And 128,000 UPS employees started out as seasonal workers, or about 1/3 of the company’s workforce in the United States.
