UPS is promising to deliver something other than packages fast: job offers.
The Atlanta-based company announced today it plans to hire more than 100,000 people for the holiday shipping season. Many will get job offers within 30 minutes of applying.
UPS says it needs to snap up workers as fast as possible because of the tight job market. Competition for hourly workers is fierce and many companies are offering all kinds of incentives, including higher pay, sign-on bonuses and even lowering their requirements, such as hiring people without a high school diploma.
UPS says it is paying between $15 and $22 per hour, depending the area of the country where the job is being offered.
