UPS is announcing plans to hire more than 5,000 new employees in the Bay Area as it gears up for the holidays.

The company is looking for package handlers, as well as delivery and tractor-trailer drivers.

UPS says some of the jobs will lead to permanent positions. In recent years, 35 percent of seasonal workers have stayed on full-time.
