It started off as a college job for Ashley, and evolved into a career that has taken her through many great opportunities at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.
Ashley was still in school and had been working various jobs when she came across TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. Wanting something different to do while she was completing her degree, in 2005 she applied and was hired as a customer service representative, with no idea it would turn into what it is today.
“Honestly, I was just looking to start working at a place that was not in the restaurant or retail industry while I was going to school,” Ashley said. “I came across TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, and I thought I would give it a try. I never thought it would be where I started my career.”
Since being hired in 2005, Ashley has held multiple positions with the company ranging from customer service representative, training and development specialist, after hours representative and after hours manager, to sales support manager, general manager at the Lansing franchise, corporate customer relationship center manager, and now her current position – Director of Sales.
Ashley never envisioned things going the way they have at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, but truly enjoys working for the company.
“I love to be on my feet, thinking of new ideas and challenges, which this career has allowed me to do,” Ashley said. “I have learned so much and love the culture and people I work with every day. It’s incredibly fun!”
Moving People Forward® is something that is a staple of the company, and it’s something Ashley lives by, and tries to challenge her team to do each and every day they come to work.
“I am always challenging my team to work hard, but to have a work-life balance,” Ashley said. “We move so fast, and you never know what could be next for you. The goal is to focus on your current role and learn everything you can – act like a sponge, and take it all in. I have watched so many talented people do this, and our whole leadership group is made up of people that have worked their way up to the role they are in by hard work and determination.”
When she’s not at work, Ashley enjoys being with her family, and taking adventures with her kids. She always enjoys traveling, and loves being able to see new things and places.
Her degree was in a completely different field, and it wasn’t originally the plan, but that slight detour during college has brought Ashley to the place she is today – a career in Moving People Forward®.
“I wouldn’t have the career I do today without TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®,” Ashley said. “My degree is in healthcare administration, and I was on my way to working in a hospital. I never thought a slight detour with a college job would change my course, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have learned so much about many aspects of business, and I love it all!”
