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®?
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!
