LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – UPS is hiring 2,500 employees in the Louisville area as they gear up for the busy holiday season.

The openings range from seasonal to permanent and include, package handlers, drivers and driver helpers. Depending on the time of position, wages for season employees range from $10.15 to $32 an hour. Select package handling shifts receive a $200 weekly bonus throughout the peak season.

“For many, it’s an opportunity to earn some extra cash for the holidays,” said Abney, who started loading trucks at night in 1974 while studying business at Delta State University in Mississippi. “But with many of our holiday hires getting permanent jobs with us, it can also be a gateway to a career.”
