Each March at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, a system-wide effort to build our company and strengthen the numbers of our professionally-trained teams takes place with our “Career Move Month” campaign.
Beginning March 1, franchises from all across the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK landscape work to bring on new hires at all levels of the company, from movers and drivers to management positions, and even new team members at our Home Office location in Lansing, Mich. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s busy season occurs from May through September, and it’s important for each of our franchises to be fully-equipped with properly trained staff to provide top-notch moving services to our customers across the nation.
“Career Move Month is our annual national recruiting initiative to help our franchises staff up for the busy season,” said Johanna Weitzel, recruiting and retention manager at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Home Office. “This year, our goal is to receive 15,000 applications and make 1,500 hires during the month of March.”
The hiring initiative ensures our brand is on the right track, having properly trained team members with strong work ethics which puts us in the right position to succeed and give our loyal customers the most positive and successful move experience possible.
“We organize several programs to showcase our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK core values, culture, and what it’s like to work here,” Weitzel said. “Our franchises get involved at a local level, and are usually thrilled to build upon the national programs we put in place and extend their efforts through the rest of the year.”
At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we’re always searching for people who are career driven, hardworking, and who fit for what we stand for as a company. We take our Core Values very seriously, and we encourage our teams to live by these values, too. Both past and currently employees have spoken highly of the culture across the system, and it’s something we are continually focused on to ensure our team members have a positive work environment that’s reflective on our company’s core values and mission.
