Leading moving franchise TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is putting its mission to Move People Forward® in action with its Day of Hiring Event on Wednesday, April 10 in Michigan. With 51.8 percent of the company’s business falling between May and September, the brand is launching a strategic hiring initiative to fill 5,000 jobs nationally. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has put a focus on key states within the system for frontline positions including movers, drivers and customer service representatives to prepare for the upcoming busy season.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has grown from one location in 1985 to more than 375 territories in 2019, and has more than 5,800 employees in the system. To support its system-wide growth goal of more than 10,000 employees, the brand is placing emphasis on hiring in Michigan with 17 markets seeking new employees.
“To show how serious we are about finding qualified candidates in Michigan, we’re giving every applicant a face-to-face interview on April 10,” said Chief Talent Officer Sara Bennett. “We are focused on bringing the right people into the system who can provide excellent customer service and grow with an established brand.”
What sets TWO MEN AND A TRUCK apart from other brands is its focus on career development at all levels of the company. In fact, one-third of the system’s franchisees and 75 percent of managers started as frontline employees. In 2017, the brand developed an internal program called XCELERATE that focuses on career development, with specific initiatives for managers and frontline staff, as well as a scholarship program to help standout employees in the system become franchisees.
“We know the success of our franchise system is dependent on the team members who are serving our customers day in and day out. Our mission is to provide the tools and courses to help our employees build a career at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK,” said Bennett. “I’m proud to say that I started off at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK as an administrative assistant and now serve on the executive team. With the right work ethic, anything is possible at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK.”
