UPS Brown Friday returns with a two-day hiring blitz
UPS plans to hire at least 60,000 of the 100,000 seasonal employees it needs for the holiday season during one weekend. This Friday and Saturday, the company’s annual UPS Brown Friday events will take place across the country.
Marking six years of UPS Brown Fridays, the hiring blitz begins Nov. 3, with more than 600 in-person and virtual events scheduled nationwide. The hiring weekend is part of the company’s broader effort, announced last month, to hire seasonal workers for its annual holiday shipping rush.
“UPS Brown Friday events are an opportunity for tens of thousands of Americans to land one of the country’s best seasonal jobs,” said Nando Cesarone, Executive Vice President and President, U.S. Operations. “From package handlers to drivers, we have a role that suits your lifestyle and your interests. With industry-leading pay, benefits and career opportunities, we have a long history of taking care of our employees so they can take care of their families and communities. My advice to anyone who’s looking for a seasonal job, picture yourself in UPS brown and the opportunity for a long-term career with us!”
