In July 2014, UPS contacted the Michigan Works! Livingston Service Center and informed staff they would be looking to hire 70-80 drivers, driver helpers, loaders, pre-loaders and mechanics for the newest temporary location in Livingston County near I-96 and Latson Rd.
The Service Center partnered with Livingston Educational Service Agency, Lansing Community College’s Howell extension and Mott Community College Livingston Center to conduct ‘Informational Recruiting’ events and launch an aggressive marketing campaign. The marketing campaign included radio and print media, social media, flyers and announcements at area high schools and colleges, and postings on MiTalent.org.
For nearly 5 months, Informational sessions were held that enabled interested job seekers to learn the specifics of the position prior to application. For those who applied, UPS staff was available to answer any questions.

The UPS facility was operational for the holiday season. In January 2015, the HR representative informed Center staff that everyone would be hired permanently at the Howell facility.
The success of this opportunity for Livingston County would not have been possible without the strong partnerships between the staff at Michigan Works, Mott Community College Livingston Center, Lansing Community College, and Livingston Educational Service Agency.
UPS has already contacted Michigan Works for hiring in the spring and additional current position postings.
