With 18 interns at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s Home Office this summer, we were very lucky to have had several interns returning for a second summer, and one of those returning interns is Hunter Block! Hunter is a junior this fall at Cedarville University in Ohio, continuing to study Spanish and global business while developing a better idea of what he wants to pursue as a future career. This year, Hunter got the unique experience of building off of what he worked on last summer. Welcome back, Hunter!
How has your internship this summer been different from what you did last summer?
“I am actually working in the same department as last year, which is the operations department. A lot of the things I am doing are pretty similar, but I am learning some different sides of the business, which is really interesting. It’s awesome to build on the things I learned last year and become more knowledgeable. This summer, I’ve been designing and drafting a best practices playbook for storage and portable storage. I also worked on the playbook for college storage, and am currently working on writing one tailored toward employee culture and motivation. All of these will be distributed to franchises that want more information in those areas. I’m also completing an analysis of our main competitors in portable storage and containerized moving.”
Being a returning intern to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, what do you recommend to other interns?
“Something I would recommend is trying to get to know the people around you. As somewhat of an introvert, it is something I struggle with a little, but it is definitely worth it. I have met so many amazing people here and formed relationships that will last a lifetime. Everyone at Home Office is so kind and helpful, so don’t be shy to ask questions and get to know people. “
What made you want to return to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®?
“I really liked the work environment here. There is never a dull moment, and the office is pretty lively. I have been to other businesses where that just isn’t the case, so it makes TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® a very special place to work. The projects that are given to the interns are almost always important, which gives us really good exposure and experience that interns at other companies may not get.”
What are you hoping to accomplish or learn through your internship this year?
“One thing I am hoping to learn is how the different departments in a business interact with each other. I got a taste of it last year, but it is something that I have been paying more attention to. I think it’s important to know and understand for anyone wanting to work in a company. I have already learned so much, and I’m sure that it will help me in my career someday. “
What’s next for you?
“I am currently going into my junior year at Cedarville University. I have one more class until I finish my Spanish major, and I am starting to take the bulk of my classes for my international business major. I’m just hoping to learn more, travel, and find out what I want to do some day.”
We are so glad Hunter spent a second summer interning with us at Home Office. Thanks for your contributions, and for being part of the team!
