UPS and FedEx hire seasonal workers

Posted: Updated:

Officials with UPS and FedEx say they expect to deliver more packages this year than last holiday season.

That means there will be more jobs for seasonal workers. UPS will hire 55,000 workers this season across the U.S. This includes loaders, unloaders, driver helpers and package sorters.

Officials say they expect to deliver more packages days before Christmas because that's when shoppers do most of their buying. They say they'll deliver more than 120-million packages around the world which is a six percent increase from last year.

FedEx is also bulking up their staff as the holiday approaches. They plan to hire around 20,000 workers this season.
