College Hunks Hauling Junk Makes MTV’s “Jobs That Don’t Suck” Appearance

June 30, 2015

College Hunks Hauling Junk is used to accolades from major media outlets, and now we can add MTV to the list of those singing our praises

A successful moving and junk removal franchise is one that is able to attract the best employees. College Hunks Hauling Junk proves that point over and over, and we separate ourselves from the competition by bringing in bright, talented young people who want to learn how to grow a small business from the ground up.

Where is a good place to reach such bright young people? MTV.

MTV highlights corporate culture

On a recent episode of MTV’s “Jobs That Don’t Suck,” College Hunks Hauling Junk co-founders Omar Soliman and Nick Friedman were interviewed in the company’s Tampa, Florida, headquarters. In addition to showing off the colorful, fun vibe of the office, the two talked about what makes College Hunks different.

“We’re trying to create a company culture that’s the ‘Facebook’ of moving and hauling,” Nick says. “Employees want to be here.”

“We wanted to create a place that was different from all the bad jobs we’ve had,” added Omar.

As the two talked, they walked the MTV camera crew through headquarters, providing an insider’s view of the orange-and-green color scheme, the putting green, and the other “you won’t find this in most corporate offices” touches. Everything, from the surroundings to the people, made a big impression.

Numbers tell the story

MTV made a big deal of the “College Hunks” part of the name, and also that the company and its franchises have more than 500 employees around the country. It all comes down to a positive, enthusiastic company culture, Nick says.

“One of our slogans is, ‘Teamwork makes the dream work,’ and whether it’s the hunks, the people in our Sales and Loyalty Center or the executives, we’re all on the same team,” he explains.

A lot of effort goes into making College Hunks Hauling Junk a growing, vibrant, moving and junk removal franchise opportunity. MTV didn’t have time to get into great detail in their short spot, but they got the message across loud and clear: “Their biggest accomplishment? Taking a job that most guys hate and turning it into a multimillion-dollar company. This job don’t suck!”

College Hunks Hauling Junk also consistently makes “best of” lists in national magazines like Inc. and Entrepreneur and other major media outlets.
