Rent One Gears Up for 6th Annual DT Rodeo

2015 Delivery Tech Rodeo Winners

2015 Grand Prize Winners: Store 34 – Lexington, TN Kiefer Campbell and Miles Faulkner.

Rent One’s Delivery Technician Rodeo is a hybrid training/competition program held annually among the company’s delivery teams, who are located among 70 stores across nine states. This year marks its 6th year since being launched in 2010.

Like years past, the DT Rodeo will begin with seven regional rodeos. Each regional rodeo will consist of a day-long training comprised of classroom testing and hands-on competition. Delivery Technicians can expect exercises covering the scope of: box truck loading and unloading, product delivery and return including the proper documentation and service calls. DT’s earn and collect “Larry Points” for successfully completing exercises and the winning team is announced at the end of the day.

classroomRegional winners will then go head-to-head at the company-wide DT Rodeo Finals where the 2016 Grand Prize Winners will be announced. Both regional and company-wide DT Rodeo winners receive a number of prizes such as a raise and trophies but most importantly, they win bragging rights for the whole year.
