Starting off as a mover, a quick climb up the company ladder has Captive Safety and Risk Team Lead Josh Vaillancourt on a solid career path with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.
Career advancement is a story we tell often here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, and time and time again, it seems there’s another employee making a positive step forward in their career.
For Josh, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has supported his career advancement every step of the way and helped moved him from a job he wasn’t happy with prior to joining the system.
“I came to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® because I was working a dead-end job, and I had a few friends who worked here and really seemed to like it,” said Josh. “I knew I made a great decision by coming to work for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.”
Josh began at the Lansing, Mich., franchise as a mover in November of 2015, and has held six different positions with the company. He was quickly promoted to driver in December of the same year, and in April 2016, was promoted to team lead. In November 2016, he made the transition from the Lansing franchise to Home Office, but this time, he took on a double-role as an intern while still working as team lead at the Lansing franchise.
In March of 2017, he was officially promoted to move execution specialist at Home Office, and then into his current role May of 2019. It’s been a quick journey for Josh, and he’s appreciative of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s support in helping him grow professionally.
“I like how I get to travel all over the country to visit franchises and conduct training with them,” Josh said. “It really surprised me how much TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® likes to promote from within instead of bringing people on from the outside. It’s a good thing, because you know you can grow within the company.”
Outside of work, Josh enjoys spending time outdoors, doing everything from kayaking, to camping, and having bonfires.
As Josh continues to work within his newest role at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, he’s excited to keep helping people move forward when it comes to franchise training and processes within the system. He’s also eager to see his own professional and personal development continue while at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, and is thankful for everything he’s learned so far.
