The holiday season is right around the corner, which means companies in the retail, service and shipping industries will start to add a slew of temporary jobs to support the increase in business over the next few months.

“Every year, we deliver the holidays for millions of customers,” UPS Chief Operating Officer Jim Barber said in a press release. “In order to make that happen, we also deliver thousands of great seasonal jobs at our facilities across the country.”

The average rate for a UPS employee is $17 per hour, according to PayScale. On average, package handlers earn around $11.37 an hour, while delivery drivers bring home around $23 per hour. Driver-helpers make a reported average of $10 an hour, according to PayScale.

If you’re looking for a job that will last past the holiday rush, temporary workers hired by UPS also have the opportunity to transition into permanent employment once the season is over.
