UPS is hiring 250 new workers in its air sorting hub at Chicago-Rockford International Airport.
Positions include package handlers, supervisory roles, and tractor-trailer drivers who will support a new day shift. This comes as the shipping company moves air operations from Des Moines, Iowa, to Rockford. A UPS spokeswoman says the jobs range in pay from $10.20 to $18.75 per hour.
The Rockford UPS facility is the company's second-largest air hub in terms of sorting capacity. The largest is Worldport, in Louisville, Ky.
