Washington DC (PRWEB) April 05, 2012
The quickest-developing of the DC area movers - Victory Van Lines, is celebrating its 10-year-in-business anniversary. Because of that, they have decided to optimize and reveal the way they select and train their excellent movers - information useful to both customers and future job applicants. The new, innovative procedure follows four main steps that would make sure that the staff is well-trained, trustworthy and efficient.
This is the Victory Van Lines innovative four-step training program:
The first step consists of running a background check of all applicants that meet the requirements of the corporate policy. This includes making sure the person has no criminal records and possesses all the physical and verbal skills required for the job.
The second step involves training the selected candidates for up to five weeks, before they can become helpers. Training consists of physical exercises combined with verbal explanations, including “tips and tricks on the spot” and field training. During training, the new “DC movers“ acquire the knowledge and moving techniques that will later serve them in performing tasks according to the customer’s wishes. Applicants learn to work in teams to make the job even quicker and more efficient. Last, but not least, the physical condition of the candidate at the end of training is noted as a plus or a minus to his total score – the better it is – the better his chances of getting hired. Also, helpers are explained the vital authority that the foreman holds and how important it is to execute his orders thoroughly. At the end of the 4-5 week period, there is no guarantee that candidates will be hired as Washington DC movers at Victory Van Lines – it all depends on their performance.
The third step of hiring and training personnel derives from the need to save as much space as possible when it comes to loading the moving truck. This is a step of the moving process that has caused numerous problems for both movers and customers, so management at Victory Van Lines decided to specifically train their helpers at how to make the most of their loading and packing techniques and equipment. Special training of how to pack and transport valuable items such as electronics, antiques, fragile items is also acquired here, since being one of the premier DC movers obliges the company to provide the highest-quality service possible.
In the final step applicants gain real moving experience by observing and actively participating in real moves. To become one of the DC area movers one must help a particular team for a few weeks before they can call themselves a valid member of that moving crew. At the same time members of the professional team can observe, supervise, correct and guide the fledgling mover if the need arises.
After finishing the whole training course, applicants are considered licensed, specialist DC area movers. To become an acknowledged expert though, one would have to be promoted to the position of foreman, which he can do in no less than a year. Becoming foreman requires that all the acquired techniques and knowledge as a mover can be quickly employed to assess problematic situations and achieve efficient solutions while keeping the team's resources into consideration.
When choosing a mover people should always consider how the company hires their staff, so that they can be sure their belongings might be in the best hands possible.
