I know we’re still waiting on Halloween to arrive, but can you believe Christmas is a little more than three months away?

In preparation for crowds, sales and higher customer demands, multiple companies in DeKalb County are increasing their workforce ahead of the holiday shopping season.

Here's a look at the businesses in DeKalb County searching for seasonal workers:

U.S. Postal Service

The Postal Service is hoping to fill more than 40,000 seasonal positions as the federal agency approaches its peak season for mail and package deliveries. Positions range from city and rural mail carriers to mail handlers to drivers, according to a news release this week.


UPS is hiring 100,000 part- and full-time seasonal workers to meet holiday delivery demand. The company is hiring mainly package handlers, drivers and driver helpers, who assist drivers on delivery routes.
