MEET OUR TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® COLUMBUS INTERN, VICTORIA!

Written by Rachel Christine

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® offers several young professionals the experience to understand how a business operates through internships at our corporate office and many local franchise locations. Today, we’re introducing Victoria Basinski, who is an intern with the human resources department at the Columbus, Ohio franchise. Welcome to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, Victoria!

Tell me a little about yourself.

“I’m from the Cleveland area and will be a senior this fall at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio.  My major is in supply chain management with a minor in communications. I chose my major because I love learning about the different processes that a company goes through in order to get a finished product or service. I recently added a minor in communications because I’ve learned that I love the human resources field as well. With human resources, I feel like I’m making a difference within a company and also for my co-workers. I have especially grown even more passionate about it this summer after working here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. In my free time, I love spending time outside and practicing yoga.”

What interested you about the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® internship program?

“I was very interested in all of the different core values put in place to ensure a successful and pleasant work environment. Once I saw The Grandma Rule®, I knew this was a place I wanted to work for and represent. Another core value is integrity, and our General Manager Steve Barton is the epitome of a man with integrity. He sits down with all of the new hires and talks to them about his real-life experiences in order to help guide them and show them he cares about them and their experience here as a mover. Our franchise is also always giving back to the community. For example, for the month of May we were collecting items for mothers in need through our Movers for Moms® program. Every day I walk into work, I know my coworkers are there to greet me and support me throughout the day.”

What are some of your main focuses during your internship?

“The main focuses of my job are related to hiring and recruiting new employees. I present weekly orientation classes, hold first interviews for perspective hires, and do daily tasks to recruit for our company. These are very crucial tasks that are important for the day-to-day success of our company. My daily tasks of recruiting include processing applications from prospective employees and reaching out to them via phone call in order to set up interviews. I also do recruiting out of the office by advertising different ways that we are hiring.”

What is the most important thing to you that you’ve learned so far through TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®?

“I have learned so many things this summer, but one thing that really stands out to me is that every individual has a story. When you’re working in human resources, you really need to take a step back and listen. I have seen managers stop whatever they were doing to listen to an employee and truly help them in any way they can. It has been so great to work with people that truly care about their employees.”

What do you recommend to an incoming intern?

“For a new intern, I would recommend asking questions and working hard at everything you are doing. It is very important you do your best and also try new things, as getting out of your comfort zone helps you learn.”

What’s next for you after the internship?

“After my internship, I am heading back to school to finish my senior year at Bowling Green State University. For my senior year, I want to continue to work hard and enjoy my last two semesters. I’m involved in quite a bit on campus, including being a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority on campus, and participating in Bikes for Tikes for Children’s Miracle Hospital for two years. I plan to make this my third year of biking 180 miles in three days to support Miracle Children all over the country. This organization is very important to me, and I want to help it succeed in any way that I can. My plans for after graduation include taking the LSAT and preparing for law school.”

 

We are excited to have Victoria helping one of our franchise locations this summer! Her positive attitude and drive to achieve her goals make us a better team. Thanks again for all of your hard work, Victoria!

BECOME ACQUAINTED WITH OUR NEW INTERN, JACOB FAUSTYN!

Written by Rachel Christine

No two days for the interns at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s Home Office in Lansing, Mich., are the same. Whether they’re starting a new project or taking part in a “lunch and learn” seminar, our company is constantly striving to make them future leaders of the corporate business world. Jacob Faustyn is an intern who has joined us this summer with a desire to work within business management, and we are excited to introduce him!

What’s your major and why did you choose it?

“I am a business management major, attending Hope College in Holland, Mich., where I’ll be a junior this fall. I chose to study business because of the possibilities it gives me. On top of that, business is something that is always growing, which has always intrigued me. I love expanding and evolving my network, working with others, and solving problems that hinder growth. A business degree would put me on a career path that would allow me to do all of those things.”

What’s your main focus in your internship?

“My main focus is to get the feel of the information technology and infrastructure side of a business. With the way technology is expanding in today’s society, being proficient in technology would greatly benefit my future and my future career. I have been interested in technology since a young age, but have hardly scratched the surface. Working with the infrastructure team has allowed me to see a side of business and technology that I have never seen. While my focus lies on helping the team with whatever I can (setting up tablets, reimaging computers, and helping with whatever else possible), I have also focused on learning as much as I can about the field.”

What’s a typical day at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® for you?

“A typical day puts me at the office at 8 a.m. I log into Outlook, catch up on some emails, and then I get to the task that presents itself for that day. I love working in the infrastructure department, because I am always working on something new. Rarely do I ever work on the same thing over and over, so I am always on my toes and ready for the next challenge. I sit in on meetings and calls with the technology implementation consultant and I get to experience all the work he does for the office.”

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?

“If I could travel anywhere, I would probably visit Southern Italy and the Amalfi Coast. I have seen pictures of it, and it looks absolutely beautiful.”

What makes an internship through TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® so great?

“Ultimately it is the people here that make the internship so great. From the first day, everyone has been beyond helpful and welcoming. The internship program through TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is one of a kind. The program helps us grow and develop skills we wouldn’t otherwise. They give us a chance to see a thriving corporation in action, and that gives us a great perspective of the workforce. From the networking events to the “lunch and learn” meetings, the internship program here is very rewarding.”

Where do you see yourself in five years?

“It’s tough to look five years down the road and tell you exactly what I want to do, but I do know I want to get my MBA following the completion of my undergraduate program. I couldn’t tell you where I want to live or what I want to drive, but I want to enter the business world with enough experience to land myself a career where I can continue to grow. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has given me an amazing experience, and I am forever grateful for that!”

 

We have so many talented interns working throughout the office every day, and it’s great to be a part of a community where so many people desire to keep learning more! We can’t wait to see what the rest of this summer brings!

GETTING CREATIVE WITH IT INTERN ABI THURMAN!

Written by Rachel Christine

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® interns are offered many opportunities throughout the course of our summer internship program. From networking events to “lunch and learn” seminars, our interns experience the ins and outs of the business, and get to learn and gain skills within their chosen fields.

Meet Abi Thurman! Abi is one of our very creative interns here at Home Office in Lansing, Mich., and currently interning within the information technology team helping create graphic designs.

Tell me a little about yourself.

“I’ve been studying graphic design for years and have had a love for art my entire life. In high school, I began spending time at a career center where I did graphic communication for two years. I received an internship doing graphic design for my church, and shadowed under a very talented woman there. I’ve been interning at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® for several months now, and it’s been everything I have hoped for and more! I hope to be here past this summer.”

Where are you from?

“I’m from Marshall, Mich., so I drive about an hour to and from work each day.”

What was you dream job growing up?

“When I was younger, I really wanted to be an astronaut. However, when I realized I needed to become more realistic, I dreamt of being a vet. When I learned all of the duties that being a vet entailed, I began getting involved with activities dealing with art. Graphic design was the perfect answer.”

What interested you in TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®?

“My dad has worked here for some time now, and is always talking about what a great company it is. Plus, the work is right up my alley. For example, I’m currently doing the artwork for a mobile game we are introducing: Mini Movers Who Care. I am also in charge of designing icons and logos for different applications. This summer, I’ve mostly been creating the artwork for Mini Movers Who Care. I have the opportunity to develop the designs and seek input from the management team to verify that they will fit into the game correctly.”

What’s a typical day like for you?

“A typical day consists of me getting into the office at 8 a.m. and reviewing the day’s meetings. I spend the day designing and talking with my coworker who codes the game. We work together to make sure my designs will correlate well. There’s always material to be created, so I’m never running out of things to do throughout the day. My favorite thing about this internship is that I’m able to do what I enjoy here and exercise my creativity in a work environment, all while making a career out of it.”

Some of the work Abi has been working on for the game, Mini Movers Who Care

Where do you see yourself in five years?

“I see myself doing graphic design full-time in five years. I would love to be here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® working my way up in graphic design. I would eventually like to try web design as well. I like how web design is a mix between graphics and coding, and coding is something I’ve always taken interest in. One day, I would love to move across the country and live in Washington. The weather in Washington is great, and makes everything looks so green. I think I could really enjoy myself in Washington, however I need to establish my career first.”

If you could have any job at Home Office, what would it be?

“I wouldn’t want any other job than mine! I’m really enjoying what I’m doing, and learning exactly what I’ve always wanted to. One of the greatest things I’m learning is how to use Adobe software, because it’s going to help me further my career. I’m also learning all the inter-mechanics of different programs we work with, which has taught me so much through this internship as well.”

What’s next for you after this internship?

“While I’m not exactly sure what’s next, I hope to turn this internship into a career. I hope I’m hired into a full-time job here doing graphic design. If not, I hope to find an opportunity as good as this internship has been so far!”

Having creative minds is what keeps our business going. We are so happy to have you, Abi!

WELCOME CAITLYN TO TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®

Written by Rachel Christine

While many TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® interns are working within our Home Office in Lansing, Mich., others have the opportunity to work directly within a franchise! One intern currently taking this route is Caitlyn Laidler! Caitlyn will be a senior this year at Central Michigan University, and is extremely dedicated to the business world. We interviewed her in order to get a better idea of what she is up to in her role and what happens inside a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchise!

Tell me a little about yourself.

“I graduated from Haslett High School in 2014, which is not far from Home Office! I am now beginning my senior year of college, and am majoring in integrative public relations and minoring in recreation and event management. This summer I am working as the marketing intern at the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Mt. Pleasant, Mich., franchise location.”

What was your dream job growing up?

“For a very long time I wanted to be an interior designer. That eventually changed to an event planner, which is what I began to study my freshman year at CMU. However, I changed my minor to event management, and made public relations my major because I felt it would be more employable. I have always enjoyed creating relationships and meeting new people, so it’s a perfect fit for me!”

How did you hear about the internship through TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®?

“My mom, Sherry Campbell, is the franchise marketing manager at Home Office, and she urged me to apply for this internship. I’m really glad she did!”

What’s your favorite thing about TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® so far?

“I love that I feel like part of the team and not just an intern. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has a really awesome atmosphere and set of core values and is a company I am really proud to say I work for.”

If you could speak another language, what would it be and why?

“I have always wanted to learn American Sign Language. I’m not really sure why, but it has always been of interest to me, and I’m actually taking an introductory course next spring at CMU.”

What do you recommend to an incoming intern?

“My advice to an incoming intern is to not be afraid to make mistakes. Owning your mistakes and improving upon them is the best way to learn!”

 

We’re lucky to have Caitlyn to the team this summer, and glad she is able to experience working for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® through eyes of a franchise! This company offers very unique opportunity in order to make our trainees to the best of their abilities. We’re so glad to have you, Caitlyn!

SAY HELLO TO MARKETING INTERN, CATHRYN!

Written by Rachel Christine

At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, we welcome interns from all over the country! One of our summer interns is Cathryn Armstrong, who is joining us all the way from Seattle, Wash. She’ll begin her junior year at Michigan State University this fall, and has a serious interest in graphic design and social media marketing in businesses! We interviewed Cathryn to talk about her internship and how she plans to use the experience she’s gaining in the future.

What’s your favorite thing about where you’re from?

“I’m from Seattle, Wash., and my favorite things about it are how beautiful it is and what it has to offer. There’s the city, countryside, ocean, and mountains all within a 30-minute drive!”

What are some of the main things you do throughout your internship?

“For my internship, I work closely with the graphic design specialist and video and animation specialist to generate content for the marketing team. I make a lot of social graphics, ranging anywhere from happy holiday designs to promo items for social contests or cause marketing campaigns. I also record, edit, and produce short videos for social media. They are mostly tutorial videos for moving tips, but some are fun, DIY crafting videos!”

Why did you choose TWO MEN AND A TRUC for your internship?

“I chose TWO MEN AND A TRUC because of the great culture, impressive history, and exciting growth within the moving industry.”

What is the greatest thing about your internship?

“The best part about my internship is that I’m getting hands on experience in areas I’m really interested in, such as graphic design and social media marketing.”

If you could have any job here at Home Office for a day, what would you choose?

“If I could have any job here at Home Office, it would most likely be Dawn Kroeger’s job. She is the marketing and communications director and oversees the marketing department, including local franchise marketing, public relations, lead generation, social media, graphic design, and internal communications.”

What would your “perfect” day be?

“My perfect day would be back in Washington where I would go on a long day hike in the North Cascades and end with a cookout and bonfire with my family and friends.”

What’s next for you?

“Next for me is finishing up my junior and senior years at Michigan State University and then hopefully finding a marketing job somewhere on the West Coast!”

 

We love having a group of interns from various parts of the country to bring a different perspective and add to the welcoming atmosphere at TWO MEN AND A TRUC. We’re so happy to have you, Cathryn!

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® … FULL OF INTERNS! MEET JASON BERGERON!

Written by Victoria Trosko

We are just over halfway through summer, and the interns at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s Home Office in Lansing, Mich., are hard at work. While continuing to learn about the company and gain experience in the professional world, they are also living out one of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s core values: be your best and have fun!

Continuing with our intern blog series, meet Jason Bergeron! This fall, Jason will be a junior at Hope College in Holland, Mich., where he is studying business with a minor in communications. A former mover, Jason has joined us this summer for his first internship, working with the operations department and supporting both Home Office and the Lansing, Mich., franchise. Although his official title is “Move Execution Intern”, he likes to refer to his position as “The People’s Intern”.

Tell us a little about yourself.

“I enjoy being outdoors, and I especially like to golf and go fishing. In the summertime, I love going up north with my family, my girlfriend, and my dogs, Walter and Peaches. I have a twin brother, however many people don’t think we look very much alike. I am also an avid collector of Super Trucks® Collector Cards. It’s the little things in life.”

What does a typical day at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® look like for you?

“Aside from checking emails, scanning job sheets, and assisting with morning dispatch, every day is different. A lot of what I do is helping people where it is needed. Some days I will run boxes or supplies out to a customer’s home, jump on a move, help Operations Manager Brycen Sorber move storage crates, or assist General Manager Jordan Smith with putting Value Flex® containers away.”

What is your favorite thing about working for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®?

“The movers and drivers. I really enjoy working with the guys and getting to know them. I have made a lot of new friends this summer through this internship.”

When you were a little kid, did you know what you wanted to be when you grew up?

“I first wanted to be a comedian until I realized I didn’t have enough jokes to be a comedian. I then wanted to be a UPS driver, but I think that job would be too stressful. I’ve never been good at delivering things, especially punch lines.”

If you could have any job at Home Office for a day, what would you want to do?

“If I had to choose any job right now, I would want to work at the front desk for a day because I love seeing new people and talking to them. When I get older and gain more knowledge, I can entertain some other spots.”

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

“I would want a superpower that allowed me to read any book really fast and memorize it instantly. That way I could speed through an algebra book and just know everything. I’m not sure if that’s really a superpower, but I would like it!”

 

Jason’s experience as a mover and passion for helping people have been huge assets to both the Lansing franchise and the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Home Office family. Thank you for everything you do, Jason!

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® movers use quick thinking to prevent potential wildfire

Written by Erik Sargent

To be considered a Move Hero in the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® system, you must go above and beyond the call of duty and make a difference, doing anything from taking extra care of a customer, to giving back to the community or being supportive during a difficult time.

For movers Sam Silsby and Elijah Salazar of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Albuquerque, they went above their normal job duties and added a new chapter to the never ending story of great Move Heroes for our brand.

On the evening of Monday, July 3, Silsby and Salazar were completing a move and having a friendly conversation with the customer after a long day in the brutal New Mexico heat. As the two were conversing with their customer, they noticed a nearby neighbor running away in a panicked state, and the two immediately noticed what was causing the commotion – a spreading fire.

“The neighbor came running out of her house looking upset,” Silsby said. “She then said to us ‘there’s a fire in my backyard’. So we instantly sprang into action and thought of what to do.”

Due to the dry climates in the western region of the country and the extreme temperatures, wildfires are a serious issue that causes extensive damage. Every year, you see multiple wildfires wipe out large chunks of land, forcing families to evacuate their homes while the fires wipe out forests, neighborhoods, and towns.

Silsby and Salazar have both known people who have suffered damages from wildfires, and knew they had to act quickly to stop a potential spread. They immediately broke down their options on how to put it out, and acted to stop the situation from escalating.

“First, we tried using the fire extinguisher, but it wasn’t getting the job done,” Salazar said. “We then started covering it with dirt because smothering a fire will put it out. So, the plans we discussed were starting to work. We were just thinking that we needed to get this fire out quickly, or it could spread and cause serious damage.”

The two worked in an efficient manner grabbing shovels and throwing dirt onto the spreading fire, and were able to put it out just before firefighters arrived on the scene. This brave act by Silsby and Salazar shows the kind of individuals TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is proud to have on the team- people who act for the greater good of everyone.

“Sam and Elijah are great employees,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Albuquerque general manager Dylan Southward. “They are always positive and always willing to go above and beyond with helping the team and customers. They both work great together as a team. Their communication was on point, and they both know how to deal with any situation.”

Without the quick thinking and decision making displayed by these two, who knows what damage could have been caused by the growing fire.

The two were just glad to help out in any way they could, and they try to live by the company core values each and every time they are out on the job proudly representing our brand.

“Being a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® mover or driver means always caring,” Silsby said. “We strive to make sure there are no damages on every move, and that the customer is satisfied with the service. We already help others in need by moving them. Doing this was just another way of helping someone in need.”

Getting to know Anna Stephens, marketing department intern

Written by Ben Laverdiere

If you’ve been around TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s corporate headquarters in Lansing, Mich., recently, odds are you have noticed some new faces. This is because each summer, Home Office hosts a group of interns looking to advance their careers and learn more about their respective fields of study. As part of our intern blog series, we interviewed Anna Stephens, one of three interns in the Home Office marketing department.

Anna will be entering her senior year at Michigan State University this coming fall, where she will be finishing up her degree in marketing. Anna is a Michigan native, born and raised in Grand Rapids, Mich. Anna has been swimming competitively since she was 11-years-old, and now swims for the Michigan State University swim team. We are excited to welcome Anna to the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® family this summer.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
“When I was a kid, I wanted to be a professional swimmer. I started swimming at a young age, so that seemed like a fun lifestyle. “

What are you hoping to learn or accomplish during your internship this summer?
“I am hoping to gain a general understanding of how the different departments work together to help this company flourish. I think the communication and overlap between departments is interesting, and I’d like to learn exactly how this works.”

What is your favorite thing about working for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®?
“My favorite thing about working here is the welcoming community of employees. Everyone has been extremely helpful and accessible, and I really appreciate that.”

Can you describe what main projects are you tackling during your internship?
“Independently, I have written several blogs about various moving and home topics. I have also helped to review and revise the translation of the corporate website to Spanish. In addition, I have collaborated on numerous video projects with Cat, my fellow marketing intern. Together, we have made several craft DIY videos including the Halloween “boxtumes” craft that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® does every year. We also have completed instructional videos on the assembly of boxes, and other social media-oriented videos and projects requested by franchises.”

What does a typical day at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® look like for you?
“I can’t say that many of my days here have been terribly similar. I usually am working on a project that will eventually turn into a blog or social media post. “

If you could have any job at Home Office for a day, what would you want to do?
“If I could have any job at Home Office, I’d probably want to stay in the marketing department. I am fortunate to be in the department and major that interests me most, so I can say honestly that I am very content where I am.”

If you could travel to any country where would you want to go?
“If I could travel anywhere, I’d go to Switzerland. The pictures all look so beautiful and there’s so much to see there.”

We are excited to have Anna join TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® for the summer with her energetic and positive attitude. There is no doubt that Anna will use her interest, knowledge, and fresh perspective to move our system forward.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® welcomes legal intern, Christian Fairbanks

Written by Chelsea Grzegorczyk

This summer, the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Home Office in Lansing, Mich., is hosting 19 college students through our annual summer intern program. Continuing with our intern blog series, meet Christian Fairbanks! Christian is heading into his senior year at the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, and this summer, he is joining us as a legal intern within the compliance department.

Welcome to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, Christian!

Tell me a little about yourself.

“I’m from Columbus, Ind., and this fall will be my senior year of college. This will also be my fourth year on scholarship to play for the men’s golf team. I recently took the law school admission test, and plan to attend Michigan State University College of Law in the fall of 2018. I like to play beach volleyball, basketball, tennis, and golf. I also enjoy fishing, wakeboarding, wake surfing, and long-distance cycling. There aren’t really any sports I don’t like, but I also I love to read, learn, and make new friends. As a bit of background, I became an Eagle Scout when I was 17, and won the high school state golf championship when I was 18. I once went on a 12-day backpacking trip in the southern Rocky Mountains of New Mexico, and I have been playing piano since I was seven.”

What does a typical day at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® look like for you?

“I try to get to the office a few minutes early so I can read the news online before starting the day. After greeting everyone for the day and having a cup of coffee, I usually continue a project I’m working on or start a new one. I also attend meetings and help with research. After work, I’ll head home or go practice golf.”

What main projects are you tackling during your internship?

“This summer, my main project is creating a user-friendly but dynamic spreadsheet to help Home Office monitor franchise compliance in various aspects of the business to ensure franchises are on the right track. I’m also organizing information on each location’s household goods tariff, reading and organizing contract agreements, and researching tax exemptions in each state’s tax code.”

What are you hoping to learn or accomplish this summer?

“I’d like to learn about the day-to-day duties and responsibilities of an in-house corporate attorney, as well as accomplish all assignments I’m tasked with that would add value to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.”

What’s your favorite thing about working at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® so far?

“I like that all the Home Office employees are extremely nice and helpful. I also like that I get my own desk, laptop, and computer monitor.”

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

“I wanted to be an aeronautical engineer. Airplanes used to, and still do, fascinate me. I used to want to design aircraft until I was 15. I found law to be more exciting when I started talking with my uncle who is a real estate attorney in Los Angeles.”

If you could have anyone’s job at Home Office for a day, what would it be?

“I would want to have Jeff Wesley’s job. I’d love to see his perspective as the CEO, and how he views the company as a whole. I’d also be interested in the types of meetings he sits in on and how he works with the other executives.”

What’s your favorite kind of ice cream?

“Death by Chocolate – it’s chocolate ice cream with chocolate pieces and fudge. It’s delicious!”

 

We’re excited to have Christian here this summer. His determination and positive attitude make him a great addition to Home Office!

SAY HELLO TO HANNAH BAROSKO, ONE OF TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s NEWEST INTERNS!

Written by Victoria Trosko

Each summer, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s corporate headquarters in Lansing, Mich., hosts a group of interns looking to further their careers and learn more about their respective fields of study. As part of our blog series, we interviewed Hannah Barosko, the new training and development intern with the operations department at Home Office. Hannah recently finished her sophomore year at Lansing Community College, and is looking forward to transferring to Michigan State University in the fall. There, she will continue studying environmental studies and sustainability. Welcome to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, Hannah!

Tell me a little about yourself.

“I have been dancing or teaching dance for 12 years. I am the oldest sibling of four, with two younger sisters and one younger brother. I love to take pictures and be outside in the summertime (preferably near the water!). My wish is to travel out of the country to somewhere in Europe.”

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

“I wanted to be a meteorologist! I used to be obsessed with the weather channel even when I was a little kid. Everyone would be watching Disney Channel, or Nickelodeon, and I would be watching the Weather Channel. My mom can vouch for this!”

What are you hoping to learn or accomplish during your internship this summer?

“I am excited to learn more about TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. Both of my parents have worked here at some point, so I grew up with their trucks. We’re more than just a moving company and I’m excited to learn about the company. I am already starting to learn a lot about each department from going through training manuals. I am also hoping to get out of my comfort zone a little more since this is my first “big kid” job.”

What is your favorite thing about working for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®?

“I love all of my team members and we get along really well. This is a great work environment, and that makes it fun to come to work every day.”

What does a typical day at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® look like for you?

“Right now, I spend a lot of time going through Stick Men University®, our online training platform, updating reports, and filling out the 19-page application for the Top Training Award for Training Magazine. The application takes up a lot of time because I am meeting with each department to go over materials.”

If you could have any job at Home Office for a day, what would you want to do?

“I would want to see what it is like to be in my mom’s shoes for a day, or maybe just half a day. My mom, Amelia, is a customer care specialist within the operations department. It would be a learning experience to say the least!”

What is your favorite Instagram account to follow?

“Ballerinaproject_. I have been following this account forever, and it has beautiful pictures of ballet dancers all over the world, in the city, on the beach, and more.”

Hannah’s kindness and hard work this summer are such positive additions to Home Office. We are looking forward to all the great ways you will contribute to our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® family in these next few months, Hannah!
