Family can be persuasive, especially when a sibling shares a solid opportunity. For Kevin, this is exactly how he learned about TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, and how he ended up on the path he’s on today.
“My brother was working there and he kept saying ‘you’ve got to come to this job’,” said Kevin, who is currently a team lead for the Princeton, N.J., location. “He kept telling me about the tips.”
Kevin was looking for a new job, but he wanted something more than just tips and a pay check – he needed something that could turn into a career. He was skeptical about joining a moving company, but after a while, he realized this was something special.
“After being there for a while, you start to see the perks of the company,” Kevin said. “You see it’s family oriented, you see people moving up. I’m like, wait a minute – this is a place I can stick around and grow. You see people who have grown from a mover to running a whole franchise in a year or two and I was like, ‘okay cool. I can deal with this.’”
In just two short years, he’s has gone from mover to driver to team lead, and is currently in training to become the operations manager at the Princeton franchise. He’s found a place to call home at the franchise, and enjoys giving back to people and working every day to put a smile on customers’ faces.
He also takes joy in the daily interactions he has with his teammates at the franchise, and will do whatever it takes to help his coworkers succeed.
“I take pride in being able to read people when they come in the morning and being able to help them smooth their day out, being able to talk to them, and being that go-to guy that everybody can come talk to,” Kevin said. “I’m the type of person who, if you’re out on a job and need me, call me. If I have to go and help, I will. I’m not going to ask you to do anything I couldn’t do. If I’m not going to hoist a couch over a roof, I’m not going to ask you to hoist a couch over a roof.”
Even though he’s training to become the operations manager for Princeton, Kevin wants to own a franchise of his own one day. In the meantime, he’s thankful for the opportunities he’s had with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK – and thankful he works for a company with so much to offer.
“This company is great because you have the opportunity to grow,” English said. “You have the opportunity to make a career out of it.”
