RE: Seasonal Positions with UPS

We are looking for your help in staffing all of our facilities in middle Tennessee for our peak season. We are looking for seasonal package handlers and seasonal driver helpers. Package handlers will load and unload our trucks for four to five hours per day Monday thru Friday making $8.50 per hour.

If they do a good job, they may be offered a permanent part-time package handler position at the first of next year where they are eligible for FREE medical benefits and $3,000 per year in tuition assistance.

Driver helpers assist our delivery drivers in delivering packages. They do not drive the truck; they ride on the truck with a driver. They also make $8.50 per hour.

This is a daytime position and does not have a set schedule as it varies by volume. Driver helper is a seasonal only position. We do not hire driver helpers any other time of the year. If a person who works as a helper is interested, they can apply for the permanent part-time package handler at the first of the year and be eligible for the benefits package.

Enclosed in this packet you will find our seasonal flyer. Please discard any yellow flyers you have out now and replace them with this green flyer. You will not see much of us until the first of next year as we have all been reassigned for the remainder of the year. We will be sending out regular e-mails and mail outs of flyers to keep you updated. We greatly appreciate any help you can offer us as this is our busiest hiring time of the year.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or if you have a referral. We have enclosed our business cards. Thank You, Meghan Oliver Tricia Hanna Kelley Luberecki
