The seasonal driver helpers will be zoned to work in ZIP codes near their respective areas. Candidates must have a valid ID, be 18 years of age and have reliable transportation to meet the UPS driver in their area.

This temporary job will begin in October 2009 and end in December 2009. This is a physical, fast-paced, outdoor position that involves continual lifting, lowering and carrying packages that typically weigh 25 to 35 pounds and may weigh up to 70 pounds.

Driver helpers do not drive the UPS vehicle or their personal vehicles, but rather assist the driver with delivery of packages. Driver helpers will meet the UPS driver on location at a consistent time Monday through Friday and typically will not work weekends or holidays. Hours vary but usually begin around 10 a.m. and could last until 8 p.m.
