UPS expects to hire nearly 800 seasonal employees in the New Stanton area to support an anticipated spike in holiday packages from November through January, the company announced.

Nationally, UPS expects to hire about 100,000 seasonal employees.

Full- and part-time seasonal positions – primarily package handlers, drivers and driver helpers – have been an entry point for permanent employment at UPS. Chief Executive Officer David Abney and other members of the company’s senior leadership team started their UPS careers as part-time workers, the company said.

Wages for drivers of tractor-trailers and package cars start at $18.75 per hour. Hourly pay starts at $14 for package handlers and at $10.35 for driver helpers.

The New Stanton Hub is located at 521 N. Center Ave.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
