Thanks to this report from Jack Fink and CBSDFW.com we're learning that UPS, Fed Ex, Walmart, Amazon and others are looking to hire hundreds of people at a job fair in Dallas. It will be held Thursday at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Dallas from 1-6pm.
UPS in particular wants to hire 1700 seasonal employees in Dallas alone, and it needs an additional 1100 people in the entire DFW region. Package handlers, drivers and those who help drivers in company trucks deliver packages. UPS is allowing seasonal employees to drive their own cars when delivering packages, instead of their trucks. They’ll earn $18.75 an hour and 53 cents a mile.
