Listening to the radio is something many people do each and every day of their lives, and most of the time, it goes in one ear and out the other. For Anthony West of the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Lansing, Mich., franchise, it was the radio that got him to where he is today.
“I was working at a small gym my friend owned, and looking for new opportunities,” West said. “I was actually working my last day and heard TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® on the radio. I applied that day, and within a few hours, I received an email to come in for an interview, and the rest is history.”
Anthony was hired in March of 2015, and is currently a driver and team lead, while also doing work as a move execution intern at the corporate office. There are several aspects Anthony enjoys about working for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, but it’s the opportunities he feels are available to him that stand out the most.
“I love the fact that we get to travel, and I also like the people I get to work with,” West said. “I was surprised by the traveling and the room for growth within the company.”
Given his previous experience working at a gym, exercising is important to West, and he plans on getting back into personal mixed martial arts (MMA) training again. He also enjoys spending time with his friends and loved ones.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has provided Anthony with the opportunity to grow, both as a professional and a person, and those are two of the main things he has taken away from working here.
“Personally, it has helped me come out of my shell. I wasn’t really a big people person, even as a personal trainer, but this job has helped me get out of that shell even more because I’m around different people every day,” West said. “Besides moving customers, I like to try and help new movers advance to becoming drivers and help current drivers become team leads.”
