    The full-time and part-time seasonal jobs are for package handlers, drivers and driver-helpers, and can be an entry point for a full-time job at the shipping giant.

    Many UPS executives, including CEO David Abney, started out as part-time workers, and the company says about 35 percent of the people hired as seasonal package handlers get permanent positions after the holidays.
