Summer & Part Time (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 9 January 2018
This is a difficult job! 30 degrees in the middle of summers carrying heavy items for 14 hours can happen. But if you're the active type, why not get paid to work out! Tips can be very good if you provide a great service. It is nice to be outdoors, and working in a different location every day.

Furniture Mover/Driver (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 7 January 2018
I had a great time working at Two Men and a Truck (Niagara Region). My day always started with a 35 min drive too the shop, but it was so worth it. I met and worked with amazing people and I wish them all well in the Future
Driver/ Mover (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 15 August 2017
I have worked with Two Men and A Truck for the last 4 years. It is a good company to work for as long as your willing to learn. It is a very physically demanding job and must be able to work in extremely hot and cold conditions for long hours.
Mover (Former Employee) – Pickering, ON – 1 August 2017
It was my first job and l can say that it was amazing work. Learning to pack valuables safely, moving furniture up and downstairs prove sometime to be a challenge, however it provided we use problem solving to find the answers.

Mover/Driver (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 21 December 2016
All around not a great place to work. Sh1tty pay for sh1tty hours to be treated like a monkey. Office doesn't know how to do quotes right so the movers have to rush to get it done. Manager will rip customers off every penny he can. Very poorly organized.
provided opportunity for personal growth and team mangagment skills
Driver (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 May 2016
Typical day consisted of rising early and finishing late but with multiple benefits throughout the day. meeting new people every day and provided optimal customer service was a great skill this job allowed you to harness. hardest part of the day was moving exceptionally heavy furniture but the most enjoyable would be the extra tips possibly given out at the end of the day.
Driving allowed for a mandatory break
long hours and moving in any type of weather conditions
Great place to engage in an active lifestyle through lifting furniture
Truck Driver/Loader/Mover/Trainer (Former Employee) – 245 Yorkland Blvd, Toronto, ON M2J 4W9 – 3 November 2015
Fun workplace with great people (employees and management). Learning the aspects of maintaining and operating a 26 foot truck for 4 years is an experience I wear on my belt. The environment and general job procedure really does promote determination and being the best one can be. The time spent under this employment has positively benefited my health in cardio but most significantly in my strength capability. As with most jobs of this nature, it is common to be fatigued and irritable, however, it is that very aspect of any job where one can learn to further their skills as a person and inter-personally. My colleagues have taught me positive social/physical skills that can be applied beneficially in my life.
Helper (Former Employee) – Burlington Ontario – 11 September 2015
This was the company I worked for which trained me in the moving industry. I learned how to be professional, courteous, and diligent in my practices of moving furniture. The money was inconsistent, also other employees were difficult to work with, and at times I felt threatened. Therefore I left two men and a truck in order to pursue my education in an attempt to gain requirements for college.

It is a fast paced environment that you have to be able to follow instruction from your leader or driver. It can be a great place with all of the guys together being able to work as a team and having fun as well. Demanding though can be lifting heavy awkward objects and have to be able to carry the weight until it is safe to put it down or in position.
A day at work can be rewarding but also brutally hard, I learned a lot with my driving and abilities. Management has its ups and downs like everything its not perfect, Co-workers are hard to rate cause of turn over, hardes thing I struggled with was constant flow of hours, the most enjoyable part I would have to say is when you see a customer happy when their home arrives safe and sound and when they get the full benefit from a professional service. Its all about making some ones life happen. In a matter of 8 hours you can kinda feel like you get to know people. They are basically in a sense allowing us to take care of their life for a day. So its upon to make their experience as effortless and enjoyable as possible.
customer satisfaction, good people, little to no supervision required, good pay for hours worked, always something different, work at own pace, health, gratuities
short season, high turnover, dangerous, not enough per hour, extremely heavy, hard on back and joints, bad customers, bad weather, too many hours to work to close together
