Every March, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK celebrates Career Move Month! We spend the whole month focused on hiring great new team members, and celebrating our current employees who have earned promotions in our company. To kick off Career Move Month 2017, we wanted to share the story of one of our Dispatchers, Darrian.
Darrian began working for us two years ago as a full-time Mover. He immediately became well-liked by his colleagues because of his positive attitude and fun, competitive spirit. His supervisor Keith says, “He was really good at taking direction from his team lead, but he was also a great leader when he needed to be. Plus, he was just really strong.”
All of Darrian’s strengths as a Mover convinced Keith that he was ready for a bigger challenge. He was promoted to be a Driver–the team lead of each job who not only directs the move, but also drives the truck, performs morning truck inspections, and handles the paperwork with our customers. “He excelled even more as a Driver,” Keith says. “He was great at training newer movers and he never complained, no matter how difficult or long a job was.” Keith also remembers that Darrian was always able to predict whether a job would take longer than the originally estimated time, or whether the crew would need an extra truck to fit all of his customer’s belongings.
About a year and a half after Darrian first started working for us, Keith promoted him to a Dispatcher position in the office. And Darrian continues to thrive with his latest promotion! Every day he communicates with each crew to ensure no unexpected issues arise during their jobs, and he inspects each truck at the end of the work day. Thanks to Darrian’s great attitude and diligence, our moving teams are able to accomplish their jobs without a hitch each day.
