    Pros

    Great summer job for highschool/college kids. Hard work and long hours but you will make a ton of money.

    Cons

    Language barrier. Most of the full time workers dont speak much english.

    I have been working at JK Moving Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of training and good customer relations in the company. Nice looking facility.

    Cons

    HR and operations are not competent. After walking into hq, the facade fades away only to show that JK Moving is just like every other moving company. JK is consolidating itself in the region while expanding with O/Os. It puts money first and people second.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a comprehensive way to hire and screen people. Stop discriminating against those working hard for your company. Maybe things would change if management had to get back in the field to see how things are like out there.

    Pros

    JK Moving Services is an industry leader with fantastic growth opportunities throughout the organization. As a manager with JK, I have gained insight into the organization’s diversity and service offerings across multiple enterprise divisions and have benefitted from in house and 3rd party training and development. JK’s reputation, financial stability and strength in the market place attracted me to the role and its culture, standards, and people are why I want to stay.

    Cons

    In the moving business no one move is ever the same, which can be challenging.

    Pros

    Fast paced, focused, and gratifying work. If you like working hard, paying attention to detail, and organization then this job is for you. Every action you take counts and it actually affects peoples lives. So if youre good at what you do you see the fruits of your labor in satisfied customers. Talking to people is a huge part of this job and hearing people happy at the end of their move is a huge perk. The community within jk is great, everyone operates as a team and its a joy to come to work. The team mentality is big here and its a pleasure to work around such hardworking coworkers who are always willing to help out. Summertime provides overtime oppurtunity which is a nice addition to an already nice paycheck.

    Cons

    Health benefits are a tad expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
