With one-third of franchisees starting as movers or drivers, company aims to hire 1,000 people and create franchisees of tomorrow
When it comes to Moving People Forward®, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® takes its core purpose seriously. From movers and drivers to marketing specialists and general managers, the industry’s fastest-growing moving services franchise is dedicated to providing hardworking employees with a rewarding career path that offers plenty of room to grow—just ask the 75 percent of management staff that started out in entry-level positions. Now, as TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® enters its fourth annual Career Move Month campaign, thousands of people will have a chance to become a part of the company employing “Movers Who Care®.”
Career Move Month is an initiative dedicated to recruiting new hires to join the rapidly expanding brand. In 2015 alone, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® had more than 1,200 new hires emerge from the celebrated month and a total of 8,919 hires throughout the year. Demonstrating growing success of the nationally recognized moving company, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has announced this year, it hopes to hire at least 1,000 applicants from the March Career Move Month initiative.
Looking to expand overall staff throughout its franchises across the country as well as corporate office located in Lansing, Mich., TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is hiring in all departments, including movers, drivers, marketing specialists and management-level staff. Career Move Month also honors the moving franchise’s focus on providing employees with not just a job, but a lasting and meaningful career. Hiring from within is an initiative that’s championed by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, and the brand encourages upward mobility amongst all of its employees.
In line with this successful annual program, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® also introduced Mary Ellen’s Moving People Forward® Scholarship program in 2015, named after the company Founder Mary Ellen Sheets. This initiative was created to show system managers the ropes through various training opportunities and eventually molding them into successful franchisees themselves. The entire executive team at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® believes in grooming employees to become franchisees by giving them the right tools and mentorship. This scholarship’s inaugural winner Randi Bloodworth was awarded a franchise in Pearland, Texas, in partnership with existing franchisees Jeff Knowles and Ryan Knowles. Scholarship runner-up Michael Sham is also partnering with his current franchisee Jeff Taylor to become a franchisee himself.
“Everyone deserves a fulfilling career where they can grow and make a difference in their community,” Wesley said. “We want to foster that opportunity by providing new job options for long-term careers at every level of our organization. We are so much more than a moving company. We’re in this business to change people’s lives.”
