1,000 hires in 31 days: TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® announces 4th annual Career Move Month

Written by Chelsea Leser

TMAT292March not only marks the beginning of spring, but the start of many careers with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. Through our annual Career Move Month initiative, we will ramp up hiring efforts to fill 1,000 openings nationwide. These team members will perform crucial frontline, management, and support functions at our 330 locations across the country to help locations gear up and get through the busy moving season ahead.

“Career Move Month is a nationwide campaign to introduce the many opportunities that exist in the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® system, but we never stop hiring,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Human Resources Director Sara Bennett. “We will hire more than 9,000 employees in 2016 and are always looking for people who want to move forward with us!”

The theme for Career Move Month 2016 is “boxes to briefcases” as a nod to the career growth accessible within our system. Many think of moving as “just a summer job”, but TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® cultivates leaders from within. In fact, 75 percent of our current managers began in frontline roles.

TMAT594Our goal for March is to receive 10,000 applications and select 1,000 new hires to join our teams nationwide. We offer career opportunities for those with all levels of education and experience. We believe in hiring for attitude and training for skill. If you like to be your best while having fun, or think everyone should be treated the way you’d like your grandma to be treated, our franchisees want to meet you!

Cultivating a positive corporate culture

Culture is one of the most important factors in running a successful business. Without it, everything within a company can slowly start to crumble. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s Home Office takes pride in maintaining a positive corporate culture on a daily basis. There are many different factors that can contribute to a company’s positive culture. Some of the most important factors TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® promotes are the following:

Respect=positive relationships

In order to achieve a positive relationship with your team, you need mutual respect. In the corporate atmosphere it can be difficult to have such a positive culture with many employees, so keeping that respect between managers and employees is extremely important. Respect brings a positive attitude and a positive attitude can bring companies closer.

Core values

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®   has core values such as “be your best and have fun” and “The Grandma Rule®”  and abides by them on a day-today basis, making it easier for employees to understand what each decision is based on. Having such strong and positive core values helps each individual realize what the company stands for. Completely understanding and truly believing in the core values of a company is the foundation to an excellent culture.

Accountability is key

At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, we understand the importance of following through on projects and keeping those around us accountable for their work. This prevents strong ideas from falling to the wayside and creates a culture of support. When we support one another, we’re able to serve our franchises and customers with the highest level of service. Moving can be a stressful time in life, and we can partially ease this stress by keeping ourselves accountable.

Social gatherings

What better way to get to know your fellow co-workers than to all participate in group gatherings? As TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® continues to grow at a rapid pace, it becomes more difficult to know everyone you are working with. Whether it be putting together summer BBQs, tailgates in the fall, or a Christmas party during the holiday season, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is constantly bringing co-workers together. By putting together scheduled events, everyone gets to know each other on a more relaxed level.
