PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

FedEx is looking to hire 400 workers for seasonal jobs in Portland during the holiday season.

The company announced Thursday that it would be adding 55,000 seasonal positions throughout its entire network.

Along with the 400 holiday positions at the current hub in Portland, FedEx is also planning to hire permanent and seasonal workers at its new metro area facility that is slated to open later this month.

Job openings at both locations include package handlers and other support positions.

FedEx said based on growth expectations and network expansion, many seasonal workers will have the opportunity to continue working with the company after the holidays.

UPS also announced this week that it would be hiring 800 seasonal and permanent workers in the Portland area this holiday season.
