SPOKANE, Wash. — UPS is looking to hire nearly 50,000 new employees during its "Brown Friday" event on Nov. 1.

"Just about everyone has heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but for anyone looking for a great seasonal job this holiday season, give yourself the gift of a career with UPS,” said Danelle McCusker, vice president of human resources for UPS.

“Many of those who come to one of our job fairs this Friday could be signed up for a seasonal role by Monday, and many of our senior execs, including me, began their careers here with a seasonal job,” she added. 

The one-day hiring blitz will happen worldwide with 185 hiring fairs going on across the country, including one in Spokane. The event is part of UPS's plans to hire 100,000 seasonal workers as part of its annual holiday rush.

Applicants can apply for full-time and part-time seasonal positions such as primarily package handlers, drivers and driver-helpers.

One of the hiring events is taking place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 1016 N. Bradley Road in Spokane.

Job fairs are also taking place in Seattle, Everett and Boise.

Those who are unable to attend a hiring event can apply online.
