UPS Recruiting for Truck Driver Jobs

UPS has announced they are hiring 50,000 people across the United States and much of those people for truck driver jobs.

The Atlanta-based shipping giant said that the upswing in hires is to prepare for the annual surge of packages that comes along with the holiday season, from November to January.

UPS has said that many of those people will be recrited for truck driver jobs.
