Besides packages, UPS is promising to deliver something else fast — job offers. The Atlanta-based company says it plans to hire more than 100,000 people for the busy holiday shipping season, many of whom will get job offers within 30 minutes of applying. UPS needs to snap up workers as fast as it can because of the tight job market with competition fierce for hourly workers. Many companies are offering all kinds of incentives, including higher pay, sign-on bonuses and even lowering their requirements, such as hiring people without a high school diploma. UPS said it pays between $15 per hour and $22 per hour, depending where the job is.
