Sales Manager Chris Makes a Career Move

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville operations managerComing back from our Labor Day Weekend holiday, we have some exciting news to share about growth in our company! Our Sales Manager Chris has just earned his latest promotion to become our new Operations Manager at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville. Chris has been working with our company for over three years now, and we’re so proud of all his accomplishments as part of our team.

Chris started working with us as a Mover in 2014 after moving here from his home in New Jersey. Our General Manager Nick was very impressed with Chris’s ability to plan ahead and prevent potential issues on the job site, so Chris was quickly promoted to our Driver Team Lead position. As a Driver, he was responsible not just for leading each move, but also for inspecting his truck every morning, walking customers through their moving day paperwork, and communicating with the dispatcher in our office throughout his jobs. Chris was a great communicator and always received high customer satisfaction scores, so one year later, Nick offered him a position as a full-time Sales Representative in the office.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville salesChris’s experience in the field as a mover helped him relate to customers as they called in to schedule their move and ask for moving advice. The rest of the sales team naturally started asking Chris for help when unusual moving circumstances arose, and he became the “go-to” sales person for working through complicated situations. A few months after his transition into the office, Nick promoted Chris again to the position of Sales Lead. We weren’t surprised to see Chris really take ownership of his new role and prove his leadership and training capabilities! Everyone saw his next promotion coming in 2016 when he was named the Sales Manager.

Throughout his time as Sales Manager, Chris continued working closely with our Operations team to ensure every customer’s move went smoothly in the field. He would volunteer to help out in the dispatch office when we were incredibly busy during the summer moving season, and he stayed late several evenings to make sure moving crews arrived safe after their last jobs. We all know Chris will do great as he takes over responsibility of all our Mover and Drivers’ training, safety procedures, and dispatching duties. Congratulations Chris!

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.

Career Move Month: Interview Tips from Our Hiring Manager

Whether you’re getting ready to interview for a position at Two Men and a Truck Nashville or another company in town, you’ll want to be on the top of your game during the application and interview process!  To help you nail the interview, we asked our hiring manager, Nick, for his advice on how to make a great first impression.  Here’s what he had to say:

General Manager Nick1. Be sure to fill out your application completely.  Even though some company applications can be multiple pages long, each question is asked to get an idea of your previous experience and skill set.  An incomplete application not only looks unprofessional, but also gives the impression that the applicant won’t be willing to follow instructions on the job.

2. Arrive to your interview on time, if not early.  This reflects the type of employee you’ll be.  When you arrive early to your interview, I know I can count on you to arrive on time each morning.

3. When you arrive, pay attention to road signs.  Especially in a city, parking can be difficult because there are no parking zones, meters, reserved spots, and private garages.  Take this into account when you decide what time to leave for your interview.  If you park in a reserved spot in our parking lot, I’ll notice!

4. Bring a form of identification with you.  Businesses need to verify your identification, background, and work status before being able to hire you.  At Two Men and a Truck Nashville, we can usually hire you on the spot if you qualify for the position.  However, forgetting your ID can slow down the hiring process.

General Manager Nick with Quality Control Specialists5. Give a firm handshake.  You hear this all the time, but some applicants still forget that a handshake plays a big role in their first impression.

6. During your interview, keep eye contact with the hiring manager.  This lets me know that you’re listening, and shows your interest in the position.

7. Be engaging!  I’m looking to hire team members who are enthusiastic and personable in their jobs.  It sounds simple, but smiling is a great way to show your excitement for the job opportunity.  And it’s okay to ask questions about the job, too!

8. Leave food and drinks outside the office.  This seems obvious, but bringing your soda into an interview is extremely unprofessional.  Make sure you arrive hydrated and ready for your interview so you can feel comfortable.

Career Move Month: Chris “Moves” to a New Department

This March is our company’s 4th annual Career Move Month!  All month, we’ll be highlighting stories from our company about how our employees have “moved up” in the ranks, and about career opportunities for you!  This week, we’re sharing the story of our Sales Lead, Chris.

Chris Sales LeadChris began working at Two Men Nashville in August 2014 after his friend, Vince, told him about an open Mover position.  After a month of hard work, Chris was able to pass our Drivers’ test and was promoted to being a Driver.  (The Driver position is the equivalent of a Team Lead in our company.)  “During that first year, I really liked the people I worked with and getting to work in the field.  It was nice meeting new people every day, and there was good pay,” Chris says.

In August 2015, our General Manager Nick needed to hire a new Inside Sales Representative.  Around the same time, Chris knew he needed to find a job that offered more consistent hours so he could have a better schedule for his family at home.  Nick says, “I saw potential in Chris.  The hardest part about training a new Sales Representative is teaching them how to estimate the time a move will take, and how to schedule a move.”  Because Chris had a year of experience in the field, Nick knew he would have no trouble translating that experience into scheduling duties.  “Chris was also always early, and he would always go the extra mile.”  So Nick transitioned Chris into the office position!

A couple short months later, Chris was promoted to the Sales Lead.  To earn the promotion, “I just came into work on time, took the initiative when tasks needed to be completed, and used my experience in the field to help customers with their moving expectations.”  Chris has really excelled as he’s grown into his position as the Sales Lead.  He wants job seekers to know, “I didn’t originally think of Two Men and a Truck as a career opportunity, but doors have really opened for me.  There’s room for growth and a career if you work hard.”

Grand Opening: TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Hermitage!

Happy New Year from TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville!

Happy New Year, Middle Tennessee!  This morning, we celebrated the beginning of 2016 with the opening of our new office in Hermitage!

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville in the Donelson-Hermitage Christmas ParadeFor over a decade, we have been active members of the Donelson-Hermitage Chamber of Commerce to stay connected with our customers outside the Nashville area.  Last month, we even participated in the Donelson Hermitage Christmas Parade by decorating one of our 26″ box trucks as a gift-wrapped parade “float!”  And recently, we’ve seen a significant growth in the number of qualified employees we’ve been able to hire.  Opening this new location seemed like the most natural way for our franchise to grow and continue to serve the Middle Tennessee community at large.

Additionally, we hope this new Hermitage location will help us reach our goal of doubling our charity efforts from last year!  Through the year of 2015, our franchise was able to donate over 100 charity moving hours, totaling almost $11,000 of in-kind services, to local Nashville non-profit organizations.  We’ve been taking steps to increase our community involvement in the new year by becoming PENCIL partners with Park Avenue Elementary School and joining the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors last month.  This new location will allow us to expand the resources we have to continue to give back to those in need around Middle Tennessee.

Want to call or visit our new location?  Our phone number in Hermitage is (615) 883-3233, and the Hermitage office address is 4830 Old Hickory Blvd.  The new location will be open from 9 am-1 pm every weekday!
