New Year, New Me: Lose weight without the gym!

Work out by working for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK!

The holidays can be brutal when you’re trying to diet…you have Thanksgiving turkey with enough leftovers to last you till Christmas eve. There’s no telling when you’re going to be able to fit in time to go to the gym.  TWO MEN AND  A TRUCK® might be your best chance to have the best of both worlds!

While working at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, moving residential and commercial businesses can be the perfect gym regimen. Vince, one of our former team leads, said that in his first 3 months with our company, he lost a total of 70 pounds. Now he competes in body building competitions!  Mathew, who began working with us as a driver, started working for us weighing 190 pounds. During one summer, he was able to lose 25 pounds. Now he has the muscle mass and flexibility to be a yoga instructor at a local fitness center. Maurice, a driver since September 2016, stated that since he’s been working with us, he’s quit his gym membership and lost a total of 20 pounds.

What’s making all our movers lose so much weight and get their perfect summer body shape early? The average workout for our movers can be compared to standard workouts that you might use at the gym.

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.

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.”

Career Move Month: How Our General Manager “Moved” Up in Our Company!

This March, we’re celebrating Two Men and a Truck’s 4th annual Career Move Month!  All month we’ll be highlighting great stories from our team members about how they “moved” their career forward at Nashville’s Two Men and a Truck and tell you about our current career opportunities.

Nick General ManagerThis week, we want to tell you about our General Manager, Nick.  Nick found Two Men Nashville in 2010 after working as the General Manager of another company for several years.  He was unhappy with the industry he was in and needed a change.  While browsing for other management opportunities online, Nick found a Two Men Nashville ad for an Inside Sales Representative position.  “I honestly thought it would be a job I only kept for 6 months to a year.  I saw it as a job for the transition until I could find another managing job,” he remembers.

But then Nick realized he really liked the company and position he was in.  “I could honestly sell the service because I believe in it–I felt good about the product.”  Nick saw the way Two Men and a Truck would follow up with every single customer after their moves to be sure everything went smoothly, and the level of accountability placed on each team member.  He explains, “I’ve always been able to work hard and move up in every company I’ve worked for, so I figured I could do the same thing here.”

After a year of hard work as a Sales Representative, Nick was promoted to the Sales Lead position.  When the managers saw his ability to foresee issues in scheduling and his past management experience, they moved him over to the Operations Department into a Move Manager position.  Each year, he received another promotion, until he finally became the General Manager of the company in 2014.

Two Men and a Truck is a global companyNick hopes job seekers realize that Two Men and a Truck is a huge network–“We’re not just all over the country; we also have locations in Canada and even across the pond in the UK,” he says.  “And the majority of our managers and owners started at Two Men in front line positions.  As long as you’re willing to work hard, there’s always room for advancement.”
