Driver/M (Current Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – September 2, 2016
A typical day consists of meeting up at the office, finding out our move information, inspecting the trucks for maintenance as well as proper materials for the move(s), then going on our move. I learned so far, how to pack a truck full of furniture, as well as maneuver around houses, hallways, stairways, etc. with furniture. Management seems shady with how they do things like payroll. Depending on who I am doing a move with, my views on coworkers fluctuate; the majority of my coworkers are good guys, however, I don't like working with all of them because some are lazy, complain about every piece of furniture being heavy, show up late every day, want to take breaks every 5 minutes, don't communicate well when moving furniture, etc. The hardest part of the job is maneuvering with furniture. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to move furniture for customers who are understandable and cooperative.
Tips, traveling, staying active
Impossible to schedule things because schedule fluctuates dramatically, rude customers, disorganized
Driver/Laborer (Former Employee) – Indiana – January 4, 2017
If you're into getting in some shape and working with new people and traveling thats where this job isn't so bad. The pay is decent if you get enough "score cards" from the customers satisfaction you get raises (as much as $15 an hr) If you have a family you have to take of and/or you have a temper problem than this job might not work out for you. It is alot of hard work but customers have given really good tips. Another bad thing (as there is more negative than positive sides to the job) is that the company only gives you a daily schedule unless it's a long trip, which then they let you know a few days in advance. Otherwise you only know where you're going for the day that morning so don't expecting a solid reliable schedule AT ALL.
Pay can be ok depending how hard you work, travel, meet new people
Hard work, long hours, no schedule, you pay for damages, no communication, stress levels can be high
A good job for a student. not so much as a graduate or a full tie employment
Mover/Driver (Former Employee) – Bristol, PA – December 29, 2016
The work is Highly seasonal, a very good arrangement with flexible scheduling for a college student. Not a good job after Graduation hours become nearly nonexistent in winter, no benefits, definitely not a a way to make a living if it is to be your primary job. Days start at 7am and go till whenever, could be done at 10am or might not get done till 9pm. Schedule is not put out till the day before, and sometimes does not get posted till extremely late. You have to be very careful with keeping track of your hours and they do not do direct deposit.
Horrible place to work i was a mover, supervisor kept all the tips, severly undermanned on big jobs, moving heavy delicate furniture up flights of stairs, walking backwards. Lack of equipment for the jobs, high injury chances and NO benefits.
Lack of respect and poor management skills on part of the managers. Never a set schedule, some days work 4 hours other 13 hours. Last moment notifications on your schedule for the next day. Horrible minimum wage pay, checks not enough to support yourself much less a family.
The people were great people and i felt sorry how much a move they were being charged by this scamming company while the movers made like $100 a day or less on $1,500 moves.
Free lunch and drinks from customers, tips that the supervisor kept
Poor management, heavy labor, injury, no benefits, unstable work hours, bad pay for hard labor.
MOVER/TEAM LEADER (Former Employee) – Des Plaines, IL – January 8, 2017
Moving other people's stuff is a high stress job. Two Men and a Truck don't cover their employees nor offer any health benefits for a job that puts serious demands on one's body. Management overbooks their employees and customers routinely misjudge the amount of stuff they actually have.
Mover (Former Employee) – Simi Valley, CA – August 4, 2016
I worked for these guys for a few days and quit. These guys wanted to use some plastic to wrap furniture then they carry it long distance around tight corners onto a truck walking backwards up and down a ramp secure it and somehow stack everything to the top even though it was unsafe. Drive to the location unload it how the customer wanted it and unwrap the furniture, then rearrange the truck. Paid me 11 dollars an hour and send 3 of us on a job that took us like 4-8 hours but it was nothing but heavy lifting and no set schedule only once a week sometimes. No medical benefits, managers look sketchy. I was driving 1 hour daily to get to work and 1 hour back and trying to support a family and my paychecks were mainly spent on the gas. Not to mention i pulled a nerve lifting the heavy furniture. The ad promised 20 dollars an hour and i as well as my co workers were all making 11 an hour
Travel, meeting people, free lunch
Heavy lifting, no benefits, no set schedual, not enough hours

Job Work/Life Balance
You'd be better off as a homeless person
Mover/Driver (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – December 16, 2016
The pay sucks you only get paid from job to job not from when you arrive and return to office... no communication what so ever you do your best an it's still not worth it.. I'd advice that you'd be better off holding a sign on the side of the road.
Great employees (drivers/movers) meet amazing customers
Not enough pay for what you actually work no benefits at all just plain not worth wasting your time
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re so glad to hear you loved your role as a mover/packer and learned great driving and moving skills. We appreciate your contribution to the team!
It's a great place to grow within a company and move up when it comes to management.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – December 18, 2016
I can't speak for everybody else but the hours were a bit overwhelming compared to what I actually was getting paid. It also is a job were people who aren't actually in management still managed to micromanage you as an employee.
Mover/Driver (Former Employee) – Findlay, OH – April 9, 2016
We never had the equipment we needed. We got called in at the last minute when we were promised a day off. That physical of a job and we had no benefits to speak of and for ten dollars an hour I could find something less stressful that I wouldn't have to pay for damages out of my check if something was accidentally broken. My co-workers were great, however my boss had little leadership skills nor did he even know that a diesel engine runs on a 24 volt system so trying to jump start on the the trucks was simply embarrassing on his part.
Overtime and tips
No benefits, little pay, long hours away from home
The Drivers and movers are excellent, but the management is terrible.
Mover (Former Employee) – Rochester Hills, MI – December 30, 2016
The office doesn't care about it's employees, you can work a 16 hour day moving heavy furniture and they will still expect you to show up the next day. And if you don't show up they will cut your hours for the next couple weeks. They don't tell you if your working till 6:00 pm everyday. No set schedules. But if your in college or just looking for a summer job, it's a decent place to work at. But it's not a career or full time job.
Tips, great co workers, see something new everyday
Driver (Former Employee) – Loveland, CO – January 6, 2017
I was a very hard working employee that got fired for a pole that holds up a extension cords to plug trucks in during the winter. It was a very windy day/night and the wind knocked it down. I was blamed for knocking it down and let go because of it when I never hit it. They compared it to being in the field, which was stupid. If I was in the field my co-worker would of lead me in the backing up process but since we park our trucks in a open field there was no need for a spotter. Horrible management hopefully they have hired someone else by now.
Mover (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – June 11, 2016
Every day was a new experience because you never knew what the customer would want you to move, Sometimes you'd work for 2 hours sometimes it'd even be 14 hour days. I can't recommend the job to everyone unless your willing to work your tail off for 6 days of the week
Digging holes for an outhouse is better than this company
Mover/Driver (Former Employee) – Columbus ga – January 14, 2017
DO NOT TREAT CUSTOMERS right so why would I think they would be fair with me. Low pay, long hours, bad pre info about upcoming move..weekends without extra pay..no clear management.. And the list goes on..
An average day at Two Men and A Truck in upper management is anything but average. It starts off with a chaotic dispatch in the morning of the guys. Sometimes the guys show up, sometimes they don't. They aren't reprimanded so you never know if you will have enough guys to get the jobs done. There is no such thing as work/life balance. I was working 80-100 hours a week. 7:00am-7:00pm and then get home and do more work til midnight or later. They also don't provide you your own computer, YOU do! After only getting 2-3 hours of sleep a night for nine months, I left the job.
