UPS Set To Hire Up To 3,000 For Westside Atlanta Hub

In building its Southeast Metro Automated Routing Terminal Hub in Atlanta, the Georgia-based logistics giant knew it would need thousands of workers, and the hiring for these roles has begun in earnest.

While the vast majority of these roles will be part-time, that still leaves around 700 full-time positions, too.

What skills do you need to perform these tasks? For UPS, it’s all about work ethic. Chris Franzoni is the human resources director at the facility, and he told the AJC he and his team are looking for hard workers who show up on time.

UPS is incentivizing those looking for work with health benefits included for both part-time and full-time employees, and the company has also worked with local workforce development groups to find those fitting the job profile.

These part-time roles could lead to something more should you prove yourself, but they’re also flexible enough to allow for continuing education opportunities or to act as a second job for those who need one. And the money isn’t bad, either.

Per the AJC article:

“The part-time package handlers will work one of four 3.5 to 5 hour shifts — a sunrise, day, twilight or overnight shift. Part-time hourly workers start at $10.35 an hour, which could go up to $13 an hour if a new Teamsters labor deal is approved. Part-time supervisors will start at $15 to $21 an hour.”

This facility will have a dedicated MARTA bus stop, which should help alleviate some issues for employees facing transportation obstacles.
