UPS is holding its annual hiring blitz on Friday, Oct. 30, with an event from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. at 1601 Atlas Road in Richmond.

The company aims to hire over 100,000 seasonal employees across the country, and over 3,000 in the Bay Area, including driver helpers, package handlers and seasonal drivers. 

Wages for some seasonal positions have increased to $38 per hour. UPS says 37 percent of seasonal workers last year came back to a permanent job after the holidays.
