Potential upcoming furloughs may damage the finances of many government employees, but one company is trying to prevent that from happening. The furloughs will enforce four day work weeks starting as early as April 1 which will result in a 20% pay-cut for many. To counter-balance this, Two Marines Moving is pledging to give employment opportunities to veterans who are now government employees directly affected by the sequester. Two Marines Moving operates in the Washington DC area. It was founded on November 10th, 2008 by Nick Baucom, a Marine who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and decided to start his own moving company upon his return. The company’s hope is to take individuals in the Greater Washington, D.C. Metro Area and fill out their work week. The company is hiring for full and part-time positions, and offers bonuses for good customer reviews. Currently there are openings for driver, dispatcher, and sales positions.
It is important to note that Two Marines Moving only hires veterans, so all former service members will find a company of individuals with shared experiences and work ethic. There are a few exceptions which are covered in section five of their FAQ. To apply, you can fill out their online application or send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you secure an interview, they ask for business casual attire (a collared shirt and khakis) at a minimum, but note that business professional attire will be received well. For further information, their Facebook page updates frequently. If you’d like to contact Two Marines Moving, call them at (703) 623-5288.
