First Rate Movers Keep Up with Growing Demand, Seek to Hire Nearly 1,000 Employees Nationwide

LANSING, Mich., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Coming off a record-breaking 2013, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, the industry's leading moving services franchise, has achieved 50 straight months of growth. As a result of the company's success, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is ramping up recruiting efforts this spring with its second annual Career Move Month in March to prepare for the busy summer season with expected double-digit revenue growth.

Career Move Month is an initiative dedicated to recruiting new hires to join the expanding brand. In 2013 alone, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® had 551 new hires result from the celebrated month. 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®. "We're very excited to grow our team, which has been the platform of all our accomplishments for the past 29 years."  

Looking to expand their overall staff, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is hiring in all fields of operation, 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 career. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® encourages upward mobility; in fact, more than 75 percent of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® location management started out with the company in a frontline role as movers, drivers, or home office staff.

"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. When TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® reaches their goal, the brand will donate $1,000 to five Dress for Success chapters across the country including Washington D.C., Portland, Minneapolis, Dallas, and Denver.

"We hope to double our hiring results from last year and, in turn, continue to live out one of our core values by giving back to local communities with donations to a worthy organization like Dress for Success," Shacka said. "Both TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® and Dress for Success value career growth and we're very proud of our partnership with such a progressive charitable organization."
