UPS hiring more than 1,500 seasonal employees in Ann Arbor area
To help deliver more than 120 million packages around the world this holiday season, UPS is hiring 55,000 seasonal employees nationwide.
That includes 2,115 seasonal workers in Michigan and 1,552 in the Ann Arbor area, said Donna Longino, UPS press relations manager, in an email.
The shipping company is hiring drivers, package sorters, loaders and unloaders.
The hiring this holiday season reflects a 10 percent increase over 2010, according to a news release.
UPS, which is expecting holiday package deliveries to increase this year from 113 million to 120 million, attributes the rise in deliveries to increased online shopping.
