Rent One’s Store 108 Takes First Place at Reg 8 DT Rodeo
Rent One held their first Delivery Technician Rodeo of the year on Wednesday, August 31st in Ashtabula, OH. The rodeo called all of Region 8’s seven stores, across Ohio and Pennsylvania, to send teams of two to participate in the day-long testing and hands-on competition.
Region 8’s DT Rodeo was from 9:30AM – 4:30PM and activities ranged from Loading and Backing the Box Truck, The Delivery, The Return, Vehicle Maintenance, Rent One Jeopardy and closed out with awards.
This year’s first place winners were Rent One Store 108 DT’s, Theodore Bower and Roberto Carrera, from Warren, OH. They are two time first place winners who also represented Region 8 in last year’s DT Rodeo. Bower and Carrera each took home a 2016 DT Rodeo Regional Winner belt buckle, a refurbishment cart along with furniture refurbishment supplies and a $0.25 raise. This is the first year regional winners were awarded branded buckles instead of a trophy which stirred a lot of excitement among participants. Region 8 winners, Bower and Carrera, will fly to St. Louis to compete in the finals on October 13th.
The next regional Delivery Tech Rodeo will be held on Tuesday, September 13th in Jackson, TN. Six teams of two will compete for the title of Region 7’s first place winners.
