Snag a UPS Seasonal Job at a Nationwide On-Site Hiring Event on Oct. 19
UPS is calling it Brown Friday.
That’s the term the company is using to describe its hiring bonanza prior to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday holiday shopping sprees.
The shipping company says it will hire 40,000 full- and part-time workers at 170 job fairs nationwide on Oct. 19.
We previously reported that UPS was hiring 100,000 seasonal workers this year, so it looks like the brown jacket brigade is attempting to recruit a large share of its seasonal workforce in one day.
The seasonal positions are primarily package handlers and drivers. Over the last three years, 35% of seasonal package handlers were hired on for permanent positions, the company notes.

The company touts that permanent jobs — including part-time — come with health care and retirement benefits, as well as tuition assistance in some locations.
