Behind the scenes with the day-to-day life of a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Customer Service Representative


In order for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK to operate at the level it does year in and year out, it takes a collective team effort from top to bottom at our franchise locations.

We often speak to the hard work that our movers and drivers put in on each move, but before they go out and make a difference for our customers, a move doesn’t happen until it runs through our Customer Service Representatives. These individuals are what put the wheels in motion for our franchises and without them being the first point of contact for customers, nothing would happen.

As we recently wrapped up our 7th annual Career Move Month in March and are now running our statewide day of hiring events through April and May across the states of Michigan, Illinois, Florida, North Carolina, and Texas, we are building our franchise teams – and CSRs are a big piece.

If you’re someone who enjoys communicating with others, being able to gauge a customer’s needs, and point them in the right direction to help them during a stressful time in their life – this job might be for you! CSRs are crucial in a variety of steps to get the moving process started, including answering calls, responding to emails, handling leads, staying up-to-date on our services and being able to relate it to customers, and following up after a move is completed to gauge customer satisfaction.

But don’t take it from us, take it from the people working the phones and getting the job done daily!

Rock your next interview following these professional interview tips

Here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, March means two things – we’re finally inching closer to the end of the cold winter months, and it’s officially Career Move Month!

This year marks our seventh annual Career Move Month campaign and as always, we’re putting a huge emphasis on getting the word out about the wonderful job opportunities we offer as we build our franchise location teams to get ready for the busy summer months. It’s important for us to find the best individuals out there in order to maintain our 96% customer referral rate and impressive customer service.

Regardless if you’re considering a potential career with us or you’re just looking at beginning a new job elsewhere, it’s important to nail your interview and show a potential employer you have what it takes to make a difference in their company.

Fortunately for you, our training and hiring teams here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK have compiled some of the best tips and tricks to stand out in the hiring process!

Live by the 15-minute early rule

You often hear that old coach-saying that “if you’re not 15 minutes early, you’re late” – well, in this case, that might be true! Giving yourself a 15-minute cushion of time will not only impress the people you’re interviewing, but it will allow you to get there comfortably and without worry in case of traffic or other delays.

No cellphones!

It should go without saying, but it’s worth repeating – turn that cellphone off or even leave it in the car! Cellphones have become an extension of people in this day and age, but you don’t want to live through the embarrassment of it going off during your job interview.

Be prepared

Before arriving, be well-versed on what the job you’re interviewing for entails as well as details on the company, and be ready to explain why you’re a good fit for the position. Strong preparation prior to the interview will stand out and appear you’ve done your research ahead of time. This can make a huge difference in allowing you to stand out among others for the position.

Dress like you mean it

Much like the cellphone tip, it should go without saying that it’s crucial to dress to impress for your job interview. Wearing professional attire to your interview shows you care about the job you’re applying for, and that you are responsible.

Shake hands with a purpose

It’s something small and it might not seem like a big deal, but a strong, professional hand shake can go a long way with the people interviewing you.

Maintain eye contact and speak up

Be clear, concise, and confident while speaking! Show that you belong and are worthy of the job by maintaining eye contact during the interview and speaking clearly so everyone in the room can hear. This will help you stand out among other candidates and give others the perception that you’re confident with your abilities and experience.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchises gear up for 7th annual hiring initiative ahead of busy season


-Written by Erik Sargent

The TWO MEN AND A TRUCK brand cannot operate without a strong team of movers and drivers along with stellar customer service representatives!  That’s why each March, we kick off what we call Career Move Month, to ensure our teams are properly staffed ahead of the busy, summer months to ensure top-notch customer service to our customers.

Career Move Month is designed to get the word out about the abundant career options at all of our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations. This isn’t limited to just movers and drivers, either – we’re looking for everybody!

“Through Career Move Month, we organize several programs to showcase our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK core values, culture, and what it’s like to work here,” said Johanna Weitzel, the recruiting and retention manager at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Home Office. “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 so they can build out their great teams.”

Career Move Month begins March 1 and throughout the month, we’ll continue to showcase what life looks like as a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK team member.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® works to make life easier for veterans


-Written by Erik Sargent

As we enter the month of November, all around the country, we come together and celebrate the heroic acts and sacrifices of the men and women who have bravely served in our armed forces.

Freedom isn’t free, and it’s important to take the time to recognize what each and every one of these individuals has done to give us the life we all live today. At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, these sacrifices are not lost on us, and we work our hardest to make sure we give back as much as possible to our veterans all over the United States.

Each fall around the time of Veteran’s Day, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchises run our Movers for Military campaign, where the franchises partner with local schools, businesses, and veteran’s shelters in their community to collect essential care items that can be donated to veterans in need.

These donations go a long way in helping our veterans maintain a good quality of life, and can often help them get back on their feet after hard times.

“We feel this is a good fit because we employ so many veterans at each of our locations,” said Charlene Bush, marketing manager for four TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations in Southeast, Mich. “Some of our longest tenured movers and drivers are veterans, and we wanted to be able to give back and show our appreciation for their service.”

Hiring veterans

Along with the Movers for Military campaign, another way TWO MEN AND A TRUCK works to give back to veterans is by hiring them in a variety of roles.

From drivers all the way up through franchisees – and even at our Home Office location – we employ veterans for many different positions in our company, and they make up a big portion of who we are as a company.

The team environment allows for a seamless transition from military life, and as Pasadena, Cali., Move Manager Cody Setser pointed out, these similar works styles are easy to adjust to.

“The main similarities are honestly just staying motivated and being disciplined,” Setser said. “When you’re supposed to show up, show up, because people are counting on you and it can screw up everyone’s day. Just be fair – you can still have fun while being disciplined at the same time, and that’s an important thing.”

Setser joined TWO MEN AND A TRUCK after serving six years in the Marine Corps Infantry, and immediately joined the company after his time in the service.

One of the biggest reasons he’d recommended the company to someone is due to the team-environment that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK instills at each franchise location.

“It’s a solid group of guys, and it has the same basic comradery that you can get with the Marine Corps,” Setser said. “You’re doing tough work, but at the same time, you can still have fun with it and there are a lot of similarities. It’s a great group of people to work with.”

For Jerry Swartz, team lead at the Central Illinois, Ill., franchise who also served seven years in the Army, he noted the chain of command as a major similarity from military life to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK life.

“The biggest similarity is the chain of command,” Swartz said. “That’s always important, otherwise you just have people walking into offices and it’s very chaotic. Then, just that daily discipline of showing up every day and being dependable.”

We’re thankful for all of the veterans in our company and for the hard work they do every day to help us continue Moving People Forward! To find out more about if our career opportunities fit your veteran background, visit our careers page here.

Local animal shelters work tirelessly to get homeless pets into loving homes


-Written by Erik Sargent 

As the pet population continues on a  constant rise, so too does the need to find the proper solutions for handling these animals and providing them not only with the appropriate care and treatment, but also finding them happy, forever homes.

All across the globe – from big cities down to small communities – are working to find the answers for dealing with homeless animals, mainly to prevent them from suffering neglect and potential death. It’s a complex issue, filled with hurdles like finding resources, having the proper space to house an animal, and having the proper staffing to provide support.

It’s up to the hardworking individuals at animal shelters and rescues to not only come up with the solutions for these animals, but to continue doing so each and every day with such constant turnover.

“We’re an open admission shelter, which means that we are completely open to the public and that all animals are welcome here from our service area,” said Wendy Welch, communications director for the Human Society of Huron Valley, located in Ann Arbor, Mich. “Thanks to the support we have in the community, we are able to treat many animals that come through our doors, and save the mass majority of them. We have about a 97 percent save rate, and an incredibly high adoption rate as well.”

The facilities at Huron Valley feature a full-service veterinary clinic that is open to the public, and they are able to provide treatment to most animals that come through their doors.

“We try to keep rates low [at the veterinary clinic], because our ultimate goal is to keep animals in homes,” Welch said. “Our vet staff takes a look at them and can treat them for different things. If there is something beyond the scope of what we are able to do here, we have partners in the community that can help as well. We also have behavior specialists that can help with differing conditions animals may have.”

Other facilities like the Heartland Animal Shelter, located in Northbrook, Ill., focus their efforts in providing safety for animals who are in danger, particularly ones who are on the streets and facing euthanasia.

“We get animals from all different situations,” said Stephanie Mueller-Simpson, executive director for Heartland Animal Shelter. “We will take owner surrenders sometimes, but mostly, we try to focus on animals that are in danger. Many of our cats and dogs come straight off the streets, and most of our dogs and cats come from municipal shelters where they are on the euthanasia list because there just isn’t room for them.”

Finding the resources

With organizations like these, money and resources can often be tight, and without the proper backing, they aren’t able to treat as many animals.

“One major challenge for us is the nature of being a no-kill, nonprofit means that we are a private organization, so we run entirely on donations,” Mueller-Simpson said. “So, if we don’t have particular items donated or money donated, we just can’t provide. That’s always an on-going challenge.”

It’s a difficult road relying on donations, and in order for a place like Heartland to operate, they need the money from any source possible and from people who care as much about animals as they do.

Another aspect that allows animal shelters and rescues to operate on a day-to-day basis is from volunteers in the communities they operate. Whether it’s with something simple like hosting community events or participating in the various volunteer programs these shelters offer, it provides a great service to the organizations trying to operate at a high level.

“We are fortunate to have many foster parents, so in addition to the space we have at our facilities, we have foster parents in the community who are able to take in the animals,” Welch said. “Whether it’s a medical emergency or a behavioral problem where the animal needs one-on-one attention, they are taken care of.”

Help from those in the community

22365597_1772764639425131_5775562813298348519_nThe impact of donations and volunteer work are hard to measure as shelters house hundreds of animals each year, and it’s people in the community who make the difference.

For the international moving company TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, select franchise locations do their part to make a difference with their Movers for Mutts campaign. Movers for Mutts was a program developed by the company, and franchises who elect to run this during the fall months use their moving services and equipment to help transport food, toys, and other essential care items collected in the community for local shelters or rescues that need it most.

DSC01626It’s a good way for the company to not only give back in the communities they operate, but also to work toward saving or improving the lives of as many animals as they can.

“It’s very important to us to give back with efforts like Movers for Mutts, because we have been in this community for a long time, and the community has been good to us,” said Eric St. Pierre, co-franchisee at the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Colorado Springs, Colo. location. “It’s the least we can do. We want the community to know how much we appreciate them, and we want to help out animals, too.”

Not only does the charitable work go toward a great cause in the community, it also gives the franchise team members a break from the everyday grind and a chance to make a difference.

“We order the materials, make up donation boxes, and get in contact with local shelters who need the help,” St. Pierre said. “I think it gives our team members something different to focus on and takes away from the monotony of work. Our workers are extremely passionate about it.”

Join the cause

“There are so many ways to help,” Welch said. “We have many volunteer opportunities from youth volunteers to adults, who can do anything from laundry and administrative assistance to dog walking and cat comforting – these are the most popular ones. Even more skilled things – we have them help out with our dog play groups and dog pack walks, and many other things.”

Outside assistance to these types of organizations is crucial, and gives people a chance to help better protect the lives of these animals and take stress off of the organizations working to save them.

Whether you’re working with one tasks mentioned above, working to become a foster parent, donating your time with their volunteer activities, or just handing over a cash donation – everything helps.

“Just spreading the word is such a major thing,” said Mueller-Simpson. “There will always be issues with pet stores and breeders, and there will always be an overpopulation of animals. Spreading the word about why adoption is important can make a big difference.”

What’s it like to be a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® mover?


-Written by Erik Sargent

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK teams are fully submerged into the busy moving season all around the country and internationally, as our professional moving teams are working harder than ever to move people to their next steps in life.

Being a home mover is an incredibly taxing profession, and at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we strive to hire the best team members to enter our customers’ homes and move their most prized possessions. It’s a rewarding experience for our moving teams as they establish relationships with customers and truly lend them a helping hand with one of life’s most stressful events.

We spoke with team members from our Pasadena, Cali., location to find out just what goes into a day in the life as a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK mover or driver.

Here’s what they had to say!

DSC_0378How does a typical day start as a mover/driver?

“Usually, we just prep our trucks and make sure we have the right equipment for the upcoming move. We call the customer ahead of time and ask them if there is anything they need like boxes, or if they have changed their mind on something last second so we can adjust and bring the proper equipment.”
Jose Morales

How long does it take to get ready?

“It varies, depending on whether the truck needs something special like boxes, or if the truck needs to be swept out. It all varies, but it’s usually between 15 and 20 minutes, 30 minutes at the most to get ready to go.” – Abraham Baustista

How long does a typical day for a mover/driver last?

“It all varies on a lot of different things. Usually for us, the average is anywhere from six to 12 hours on a normal day. What changes it up is anything from someone having only a little bit of items to longer walks, apartment moves and condo moves, and parking difficulties, which all affect the time.” – Jose Morales

Favorite parts of your job?

“I would have to say the people that work here. I do have a lot of experience working at different places, and I can say that from day one when I started here, I was a little nervous because I didn’t know anyone. But the thing about this company is they do a very good job of just getting you used to the environment, the people, and literally by my fourth or fifth day, I knew everyone. That’s just my favorite thing – the comradery in the DSC_0388office is what keeps us going.” – Jabrion Burnside

Challenges on the job?

“Definitely the heat. Lifting is not easy, and you’re already producing a lot of heat as is. When you add in the sun on you and how hot the truck can get, it sometimes just wears on you and can slow you down. Also, since we are in California and specifically the Los Angeles area, traffic can get really, really bad.” – Abraham Bautista

What do you do to make customers feel comfortable during a home move?

“I would say the biggest thing is getting to know the customer. At the end of the day, you have a service you are performing for them, but nothing is better than actually knowing you on a more personal level, because then they trust you more and you trust them more, and it adds to the overall experience of the move.” – Jabrion Burnside


There you have it! Moving is one of the tougher jobs you’ll find, but when you have hardworking professionals like these three young men – and the team members at all 350  TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations – it can make your moving process a little bit easier.

National Move Hero left speechless, humbled by recognition


-Written by Erik Sargent

It’s no secret that when you look at the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® success over the last 30 years, its people have been the one common factor keeping the brand moving forward.

With more than 350 locations operating in four different countries, over seven million moves completed, and endless customers impacted by our services, the most important part of our business is the hardworking individuals we employ all across the system.

This all starts at the frontline level of the company – the ones who truly make things happen with the heavy lifting. For Marcos Nabejar of the McKinney, Texas, location, his efforts as a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK team member stood out above the rest of the system and he was awarded with the highest honor a frontline employee can receive – the National Move Hero Award.

“I was just overwhelmed with gratitude by the entire process,” said Nabejar, who has been a lead trainer and truck driver for the McKinney location since January of 2016. “It truly showed that with God, all things are possible in life.”

Marcos3Nabejar was informed of his nomination before TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s Annual Meeting event that was held in Orlando, Fla., in March. Annual Meeting is a three-day event for the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK brand to gather and discuss best practices and how to achieve success, but for Nabejar, it turned into a meet-and-greet with other attendees after he was introduced as a National Move Hero nominee on opening night.

“Everyone I talked to at Annual Meeting was very positive and kind to me,” Nabejar said. “I felt very honored to have an opportunity to attend. I made some memories that I will never forget.”

Nabejar was one of three nominees for the National Move Hero Award, joining DJ Cook – a driver for the Polk County, Fla. Location – and David Woods, who is a move consultant for the Raleigh, N.C. franchise location.

The three held celebrity status during the Annual Meeting, but on awards night, it was Nabejar who received the news – in front of all attendees – that he had earned the highest award of national move hero. It was a major milestone for Nabejar and his TWO MEN AND A TRUCK career, something he wasn’t quite sure how to put into words.

“Speechless,” Nabejar said. “I was just speechless and overwhelmed at the honor.”

According to those who work with Nabejar on a daily basis, he’s a devoted family man who is heavily involved with his church when he’s away from work. Although he always puts work first, he took some personal time away from the job after Hurricane Harvey hit to head down to the Houston area and worth with relief efforts for the city, showing what kind of person he really is. During his time with TWO MEN AND A TRUCk, he has maintained an excellent customer satisfaction rating, and is considered to be a model employee by his peers.

For Nabejar – who puts so much time into helping others at his franchise location – he felt it was important to recognize his team members from his McKinney location as he won the award, because being part of that team made this possible for him.

“Everyone [at my location] is proud of the award,” Nabejar said. “It’s a great feeling knowing  I’m part of such a wonderful and supportive team.”

Although he enjoyed the time celebrating his award, part of what got Nabejar to where he is today is his commitment to hard work and always looking forward, and that’s exactly what he plans to keep doing.

“I’m always dedicated to setting the bar higher,” Nabejar said. “I give respect to everyone I work with and because of that, I get respect back. I strive to continually encourage each team member to be the best they can be, both on the job and in their personal lives. My ultimate goal is to put God first, and I am grateful anytime He uses me for His purposes.”

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® partners with Project C.U.R.E to distribute much-needed medical supplies worldwide


-Written by Erik Sargent

All around the world, medical supplies and equipment are always at a premium, especially with the ever-growing population across the planet.

But what happens to these items when they’re out-of-date and hospitals spend millions to update their equipment? It’s a question you don’t think of, but it raises a good point – just because the item is used, doesn’t mean it no longer works or that it can’t continue to help people. Many countries around the globe cannot afford new medical equipment, and patients in these areas are often denied treatment due to the lack of proper equipment.

For Dr. James Jackson – who discovered this issue in the 1980s while traveling in Brazil – it became a life goal to find a solution to this problem, and that’s how “Project C.U.R.E.” was developed. He returned home from his trip to Brazil in 1987, and immediately began putting this mission together in Evergreen, Colorado, where he was able to collect $250,000 in medical supplies in just 30 days, which he stored in his garage.

Now, more than 30 years later, Project C.U.R.E. is a full-fledged operation with distribution warehouses across the United States in locations that include Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.

Here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, this is exactly the kind of company we love to work with as we continue our efforts of giving back to our communities and working hard to make a difference in the lives of others. That’s why our franchise location in Plainfield, Ill., developed a partnership with Project C.U.R.E. to collect and distribute these used medical supplies with our professional moving teams and trucks.

TaylorMcGuffie“TWO MEN AND A TRUCK and Project C.U.R.E. are teaming up to help move the world forward,” said Taylor McGuffie, marketing project liaison at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s Home Office location in Lansing, Mich. “As the largest provider of donated medical items to developing countries worldwide, we want to help in the best way we know how – moving!”

For Franchisees Joanne and Ron Sebby – who own the Plainfield franchise – when they were contacted by Home Office regarding the opportunity, and after some logistical planning, discovered it was a great fit for them.

Joanne Sebby“[The whole experience] was very nice. Rosemary was our contact at Project C.U.R.E., and they really aren’t that far from our franchise,” said Joanne Sebby. “We discussed what we could provide in terms of hours per month and then I handed it off to Greg [Sebby], and Greg set the whole process up.”

Fast forward to today, and the franchise has been running on the schedule of performing moves for Project C.U.R.E every other Wednesday, and the amount of movers and trucks needed varies by week.

“The vast majority of the moves usually involve just one truck and two guys, and each move takes five or six hours,” said Greg. “There was one time we were moving 16 hospital beds and 60 other pieces of hospital furniture, and we had to send five trucks and 10 guys for that move. It took our guys all day long.”

Joanne Sebby mentioned how they are always looking to make a difference by helping with moves like this, and outside of Project C.U.R.E., have recently done other charitable moves like collecting water and donating truck time to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The partnership with Project C.U.R.E. has been rewarding for everyone involved at the franchise, and the location has no plans of slowing down with their assistance moving forward.

“I think it’s important for us to work with charity groups because we like to do it,” said Joanne Sebby. “I think getting our name out there is just an added bonus. We’ve tried to do charity work throughout the years, but none have resonated quite like this one. I think it’s a good fit for us.”

Use these expert interviewing tips to land your dream job!


-Written by Erik Sargent

March means hiring season for the “Movers Who Care®” here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, and all across the country, we’re working our hardest to add quality team members to each level of our company.

Each March we kick off our “Career Move Month” campaign, and it’s in full-swing as we work through the month. Our goal this year is to receive 15,000 applications for all levels of the company, with 1,500 new employees hired. It’s an extensive process, but this helps us continue to grow our brand and ensure we‘re staffed with the highest quality team members to provide the highest level of service to our customers.

Whether you’re applying with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK or you’re working to get a job elsewhere, the application, hiring, and interview process can seem daunting. From filling out multiple applications to sitting through extensive and difficult interviews, it can become stressful and time consuming, and sometimes, you can feel like you’re going nowhere.

One of the best ways to tackle this issue is to be prepared and do your research prior to entering the interview process. Nailing the interviews for your desired job is usually the difference maker between getting the job and continuing the job search.

Fortunately, our quality training and hiring teams here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK have seen it all when it comes to the hiring process, and we’ve put together an excellent list of interview tips to make sure you nail your next job interview and land your dream job.

Be sure to give these a try!


If you aren’t prepared when you sit down to talk with the people trying to hire you, you’ll stand out like a sore thumb. Companies can tell whether you’re up-to-date on what the job entails, what you know about the company, and what your previous experience is right away. Be sure to review all details pertaining to your desired job so you can answer any question with ease.

Dress to impress

You would think this comes as a no-brainer, but sadly, it does not. Make sure you are dressed up like a pro! Showing up in your everyday street clothes sets a bad tone right away from the interview, and also shows that this job isn’t very important to you.

Follow the “15-minute early” rule

Make sure that when you know the time of your interview, you prepare accordingly, and give yourself enough time to be there a comfortable 15 minutes early. Map out how you‘re going to get there, and give yourself a cushion to account for any traffic or delays so you aren’t late for the meeting.

Shake hands like a professional

Another aspect of a job that might get overlooked, but a strong handshake can set the right tone heading into your interview. It shows that not only are you a mature candidate for the job, but establishes a level of respect and professionalism that can be appealing to the people interviewing you.

Maintain eye contact and speak clearly

Although it’s important to be knowledgeable with the relevant details while talking, none of that matters if you’re looking down at the floor and mumbling the entire time. Show your confidence by keeping your head up, maintaining appropriate eye contact, and speaking clearly and concise to show you’re the right person for the position.

Turn that cell phone off!

It’s no secret that cellphones are basically an extended part of our bodies in 2018. However, as true as that might be, don’t be on it during your interview! Be sure to either turn the phone on silent, or better yet – turn it off completely. The last thing you want is for it to go off right in the middle of your important interview.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® prepares for sixth annual Career Move Month campaign


-Written by Erik Sargent

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.

Johanna-Weitzel“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.
