Drive mobile repair truck to perform emergency road service repairs and/or preventive maintenance checks on U-HAUL® equipment. Tow vehicles to repair shops for major repairs. Position requires a valid driver’s license and maintain a good driving record to operate motor vehicles with both types of transmission (automatic or standard).

Giving back to our military
U-Haul has also been honored four times by G.I. Jobs as one of the “Top 100 Military Friendly Employers.” As a Company founded by a military veteran, this recognition shows our ongoing dedication to our military servicemen and women.

“As we seek talented individuals to fill the many positions we have available, our veterans have the skills and desire needed to be successful,” proclaimed Ed Custodio, military field recruiter for U-Haul HR. “It is amazing to have a chain of command that supports our efforts for our veterans and the many team members who have done so much to support the ongoing veteran initiatives we are involved with.”

For U-Haul, supporting our troops includes being a part of a program like Army PaYS. This program helps soldiers find a quality job after separating from the military.

“All veterans who apply for our positions are given hiring priority,” Custodio stated. “Today, our total workforce consists of 12 percent who are veterans and have served our country. It is important that we, as an organization, continue to recognize what these men and women have done for us and the freedom we enjoy today."

December stats and insights for

*December 2011 was our best December ever with 3,174 visits and 9,257 page views. Average time on site per visit was over 5.5 minutes.

Facebook insights - Of course these numbers only apply to South Side Business News Facebook fans and not directly to the website, but for what they're worth: The majority of our fans are over 35-years old and pretty evenly split between male and female. About 7 percent are between 25 and 34, and almost none under 25.

*Explanation of terms. A unique visitor is a visit from one IP address. In other words, if you visit the site 3 times in one day, that's still one unique visitor. A visit is someone coming on site, whether they visit one page or ten, then exiting the site (that's one visit). A pageview is just what it sounds like, the number of pages within the site that were viewed. Robots and Spiders used by search engines to catalog sites, are not included in these numbers. I'm not reporting "hits" because it's not a useful number. A single visit to one page of a website can generate a dozen or more hits.
