Our friends across the street here on Pine Tree Road in Lansing are getting ready to hire...and I mean hire!

Two Men & A Truck is looking for 5,000 people in the next couple of months to come aboard and it all starts tomorrow as the company presents their first ever statewide "Day of Hiring" event. The reason? Two Men see's this upcoming summer moving season as their biggest ever.

Here's more info from an email sent to us on behalf of Two Men & A Truck from No Limit Agency:

The Lansing Day of Hiring event will be taking place from 2-6pm on April 10th...

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is the largest franchised moving company in North America with 375 locations and 2,900 trucks operating in 44 U.S. states and has performed more than 7 million moves since its founding in 1985. On the heels of March's 7th Annual Career Move Month, the company is introducing the first-ever Day of Hiring events across 100 markets in five key states between mid-April and mid-May (Michigan, Illinois, Florida, Texas and North Carolina) in order to help franchisees attract new employees for the months ahead.

In 2018, the company hired 4,500 during the same time period and in 2017, they introduced the internal XCELERATE program to highlight career growth opportunities and offer incentives to attract and retain employees in a tighter labor market. 75% of the general managers were movers or driver prior to moving up within the company.
