    Your experience will vary with each franchise. There are few good franchises, most will treat you as a number only.

    I worked at Two Men and a Truck full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was just ok. It is hard and physical work for long hours on end. Atmosphere is rather laid back.

    Cons

    Favoritism towards employees that have tolerated the job the longest. Elder workers and scheduling staff look down upon new recruits and provide very limited money making opportunities unless you stick it out for the long term, provided you don't go brokke first. No rewards for going above and beyond job responsibilities. Zero recognition for operation streamlining efforts.

    I worked at Two Men and a Truck as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The paycheck. It was a learning module for how NOT to manage an office.

    Cons

    Greensboro location was horrible. The office smelled like a warehouse/damp basement. The training was inconsistent from day to day. I watched online tutorials for 1 week. The Office manager had little training knowledge and less people skills. Not a good place to work. No team spirit!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, please take training so you can properly train new employees. And EVERYONE should take customer service, and team building training!!!!!

    Pros

    Possibility of big tips, lots of hours, different environment everyday, customers are sometimes very friendly, don't have anybody staring iver your shoulder

    Cons

    Overworked, management doesn't care about employees, terrible training program, most new hires have no idea whats going on and they will hire anybody willing to work, NO chance what so ever of a future, or promotion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about workers and less about your own bonuses!!!!

    I have been working at Two Men and a Truck full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Theres a great chance at getting overtime, you can make some great friends, and even get your CDL in the process. You get a great workout. You get a really good addition to your resume by being able to put supervisor on to it, as they give you the promotion if your not late.

    Cons

    They work you to the bone. You get promoted to supervisor like nothing, some workers are rude. The management acts like the job is your last chance to make it in life when it clearly is just a job. If you have a life before this job then your not going to have one during it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like your the god of your employees, they are the blood of your organization.

    I worked at Two Men and a Truck full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I'm young and fit so the physical workout is good. Pay is okay along with tips. Can grow quickly within the company. Enjoyed working with Two Men and A Truck and took ownership to be the best mover possible and pleasing our customers.

    Cons

    A lot of jealousy for those who may have been employed longer and the new kid arrives on the block blowing them away. Schedule is inconsistent. Was short $200 in my check and still haven't been reimbursed. A cut throat business. You work hard, receive positive feedback from customers and manager is exalting your work performance, but other co-workers can bad mouth you and management will take their word which outweighs all positive feedback then they fire you based on co-workers comments. Totally cut throat and unfair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick up and stand behind your good, hard working employees and do not allow others to steer you away from what you already know about your good employees.

    Difficult work, with tolerable pay

    I have been working at Two Men and a Truck full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you can work hard, you can get treated well. The pay is okay, and depending on the location the hours are there to get. Especially with the worker turnover, when there is a new group of new employees still getting used to the work, there is space left to pick up what they cannot. Also, if you work hard there is the potential to boost your pay with bonuses and tips. The job definitely keeps you in shape, though. And people usually appreciate what you are doing because they tend to understand they couldn't do it themselves.

    Cons

    The hours are inconsistent. You have to basically assume you will work everyday although that is not necessarily the case. The schedule comes out every day, but there is an expectation that you be able to work if someone cannot work that day (at our franchise you're "on call" until 930). The pay is not quite what you would hope for the degree of difficulty that comes with the job. And as I said, there is a lot of worker turnover, so there are phases where some employees can't quite hack it and you'll have to pick up the slack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think worker turnover might be lower if the pay was a bit higher, and if the schedule were a little bit less chaotic. It may be too much of a strain on income to require people to schedule a week ahead, but that would take a lot of stress off of the workers. And honestly, improving the issue of worker turnover would likely greatly improve the reputation of the company because the more experienced movers tend to be better at satisfying the customers.
