Sales Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – November 8, 2016
I found Bekins to be very enjoyable with the work, and my co-workers. Although I did not find it a place where you felt secure in your job and that upper management appreciated you, and wanted you to succeed.

This is a heavy lifting hard work job. you're lifting up over 100 pounds moving furniture and other personal products belonging to customers moving from there homes to a new location. You must be delicate with items to insure no goods get broken during packaging and shipping. You must always have a good attitude when dealing with customers. Everything in your truck must be properly secured to insure the safety of the customers belongings and your safety as well. A improperly secured truck can cause you your life, damage to company property or hurt other drivers around you if something went wrong. so safety is key to do this type of work.
Tractor Trailer Driver (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – July 7, 2015
I would start work around 7 a.m. and take my truck to wherever a load needed to be packed and shipped. I supervised and helped the inventorying, packing and loading of the trailer. Sometimes my co-workers were given to me to use who had claimed they knew how to do a job, but, found out they knew nothing and were hired because they were friends of one of the bosses of the company.
