To help with the Christmas hussle and bussle, UPS is adding a employees to help throughout the holiday.

To help with the Christmas rush UPS is adding 4,700 seasonal employees in Texas to help pack and deliver holiday packages.

Twenty of those jobs will be filled in the Brownsville area.

"This is a temporary job. They all know it's a temporary job, they will be let go approximately the 23rd or the 24th of December based on the need. After that if the need arises, we'll bring some of those back depending on the need," said Val De La Rosa, UPS.

But just because the job is temporary now, doesn't mean it won't lead to a full-time position.

"Actually I was once a temporary helper. I worked here for approximately a month, month and a half during the Christmas season many, many years ago. They let me go, then approximately three months after that they actually hired me," said De La Rosa.

The temporary positions being filled are called driver helpers.

Driver helpers don't actually drive the brown UPS trucks. What they do do is help deliver and drop off packages at the businesses and residence.

The temporary positions pay $8.50 an hour.

"Actually we are hiring a couple of people for the support season, not sure probably about another four or five for the season," De La Rosa.
