Poll question: Seasonal ramp up

By HBSDealer Staff - 09/09/2019
Corporate America again is bringing high expectations to the holiday season.

UPS announced on Monday that it is looking to hire 100,000 employees to support the anticipated annual increase in package volume.

“We expect another record Peak season this year, with daily package deliveries nearly doubling compared to our average of 20 million per day,” said Jim Barber, chief operating officer of UPS. “In order to make that happen, once again we’re recruiting about 100,000 people for some of the country’s best seasonal jobs.”

UPS will hire full- and part-time seasonal positions – primarily package handlers, drivers and driver-helpers.

Meanwhile, Amazon on Monday said it intends to hire some 30,000 permanent jobs across the country.

This week’s poll question looks ahead to the holidays. “How is your business preparing for the holiday sales surge?” The poll is open on the right side of this page (or scroll down your mobile device).
