The busy holiday shipping season starts in November and continues through January 2020 as people return gifts.
UPS chief operating officer Jim Barber said in a written statement that the company expects another record season, with double the number of daily package deliveries. The company normally delivers an average of 20 million packages a day.
Some seasonal hires will work at temporary facilities for the seasonal shipping rush.
In addition to their pay, seasonal workers who are eligible can also earn up to $1,300 towards college expenses for three months of continuous employment.
