COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - UPS says it is looking to hire 600 workers in central Ohio as it expands operations at its two local package hubs.

The company said Wednesday it is looking for a variety of positions including full-time, part-time and seasonal tractor-trailer drivers. Wages start at $10.35 per hour for package-handlers and $18.75 an hour for drivers.

The positions will be at its facilities in Columbus and Obetz. The company will host a job fair Sunday, June 3 at its Columbus location to help fill the positions.

UPS Inc. will hire more than 1,000 seasonal workers in the fall to help with the holiday shipping rush.
