Demonstrating the growing success of the nationally recognized moving company, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has announced it hopes to receive 10,000 applications throughout the month of March and hire at least 1,000 of those applicants.

"Career Move Month is an essential time to extend opportunities to potential hires and encourage their involvement with a leading brand focused as heavily on the satisfaction of its customers as it is of its employees' success," said Randy Shacka, president of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.

"A big factor in our success is the commitment to our franchisees and staff," said Sara Bennett, human resources director for the brand. "Our president, Randy, even started out as an intern in the corporate office. Our people are a vital part of our brand, and we're better able to serve our customers because of the talents which they bring to the table. That's why we're committing an entire month to the growth of the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® team and to further add to our talent pool."  

In an effort to reach the goal of 10,000 applicants, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is partnering with Dress for Success, a non-profit organization focused on empowering females by giving them the necessary resources, like professional attire and career development tools, to excel in work and life.
