Awesome Company
One of the greatest places I have worked, the company wants to hold on to its good employees and provide a positive atmosphere. Lots of room for a career for hard workers. Some very practical skill building too.

I truly have enjoyed working at JK Moving, an organization that is dedicated to giving back to the community!
I have been working at JK for over a year now. This organization has helped me grow my skills as an individual and as a team player. What I love most about JK is that they are interested in employee growth and giving back to the community. The JK Community Farm caught my attention even before I started with the organization and after I joined I was given the opportunity to volunteer and help others in need - this is what community is truly about! I would recommend this organization to someone who is interested in growing their skills everyday to become a better person at work and in your personal life as well.

Excellent Core Values
JK is a great company based off of it's core values. It is currently in the process of becoming a 'small- large company' and is seeing many advancements. There are some issues with Legacy employees and the relationships and misguided loyalty to some of them. Slow moving to technology and working a lot in manual processes. Overall a great company.

Thank you for your feedback. Our move teams have gone paperless and use iPads to record work hours, customer paperwork, etc. Additionally, a variety of methods of communication are used to ensure that all employees are informed - such as emails and text messaging as well as information pages in the employee portal. I encourage you to reach out to HR regarding the "legacy employees" you referenced.

Jk moving
It is a good place to work after graduation, just to build your resume, after That , look for something else. It could’ve been better. I believe it has to do with level of education, most of employees have got no education that’s why it is hard to deal with some of them. Back stabbing are champions. One day I decided to clean my desk, I found about 100 invoices sitting there. Thanks God I found a new job at GOV after 4 months of working there. I don’t miss it. Offf

It was a moving company that offered a good paycheck for a college student
Excellent for a college student who needs money. However, be prepared to work long hours and on the weekend, it will always be a 40+ hour work week and often is 60+. But the overtime pay is nice

A joke
This company is a absolute joke. Overworked and underpaid. Underappreciated. Bring up a concern and you'll be dismissed. A couple project managers were horrible,the ones from sterling and milk a jobs, but cry for more people and their demands are met. So glad I am gone and never want to see that hellhole again.
Pros
A couple project managers, one from Sterling and another from Woodbridge came in to get the job done
Cons
A couple Sterling project managers think they are untouchable. Want to milk a job, talks smack behind your back.

JK offers flexible schedule and paid time off to employees. Due to the nature of the moving industry, hours may vary, yet full time employees average over 40 hours per week. At JK, everyone is treated with care and respect. Please contact Human Resources regarding your concerns over termination of employment as that is not consistent with our policies or practice.

It's good. If you don't mind being disrespected!
It's a decent company.. If you don't mind fighting with the office/dispatch or being disrespected and talked down to by that one project manager that's always condescending. The good is I've worked with a few great guys and learned a lot about the moving industry.

Run far away.
This place has no structure or career advancement. Do not work in the warehouse. Absolutely no structure and during the off season there is nothing to do. You'll do meaningless task to get your hours. People come and go all the time. Hourly wage is low and the managers and supervisors sit at their computers all day. The warehouse manager is a burn out from UPS.

Only good in the Summertime, during the off season nothing is going on.

My first day I swept up the warehouse, took the trash out, and did random activities that made little sense. I was basically a janitor. The hours aren't told to you until the first day, or what you'll be actually doing.


Unless you get into the corporate side, you will never make money. Drivers make decent money but are overworked. You have workers who have 30 years with the company barely making 20 an hour.....

Due to the seasonal nature of the Moving & Storage Industry, work levels vary throughout the year. This can be a great opportunity for overtime! We also work with employees to ensure they are scheduled for enough hours, even when there may be less business.

Schedules are discussed during the interview process and have fixed start times depending on the shift chosen. Schedule changes may occur due to changing business needs and are discussed with the employees when the need arises.


Historically, an average of 12% of employees have been promoted throughout the year. Many of our administrative and management staff began their careers in the warehouse or as a moving helper, including members of our Accounting, IT, Operations, Sales, and even Executive Teams!


JK is always looking for top talent to join the team. In addition to competitive salaries, we provide a generous benefits package that includes Profit Sharing!

Great for Growth
Lots of opportunity for training and advancement. As the company grows, there are lots of chances for a promotion. Tuition Reimbursement, company-paid training and certifications, and a student loan repayment program. Lots of support for learning.
