Career Move Month: Darrian “moves” up in the company

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville's career move month

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville's dispatcher DarrianEvery 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.”

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK NashvilleAll 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.

Whether you’re looking for a summer gig or a full-time career, we have great work opportunities at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville!  We could tell you all about our fun atmosphere, paycheck bonuses, and get-out-of-the-office opportunities, but we wanted to tell you the top five reasons our employees love working here.

1. BIG paychecks!

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville Movers and Drivers can earn tips from happy customersFirst of all, our starting pay for Movers and Drivers is between $11-14/hour, depending on your experience and certifications.  All of our Sales Representatives make $12/hour, plus a commission on every single sale they make.  If that doesn’t sound awesome enough, we also pay all of our staff for their training because all three of these positions are entry-level.  Our Movers and Drivers are trained more extensively than any other movers in the industry, so they generally pocket extra tips from their impressed customers!  On top of that, all of our employees are offered a bonus for referring their friends to work for us.  And every month, Movers and Drivers can make another bonus for keeping high customer satisfaction scores!

2. Upward mobility opportunities.

Most people don’t realize that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK doesn’t just offer jobs…  We work hard to promote internally every time we need another manager.  In fact, every manager at our location started in an entry level position and worked his or her way up!

3. A safe, drug-free workplace.

While many moving companies claim to be drug-free, we actually perform monthly drug tests with all of our employees (including office staff!) to ensure a clean workforce.  We also have a zero-tolerance policy for any type of violent crime, so you can feel very safe with your team members.

Vince, one of our Quality Control Specialists, likes to brag about how he lost 70 pounds during his first summer working for us as a Driver.  We asked him to track his steps during one day of moving, and he typically takes about 4,900 steps during each moving job!  Check out this screenshot from his smartphone’s step counting app showing the details of his “workout” during a move on June 8 this year.

5. Fun atmosphere!
