This HUNK Isn't Your Average Hauler

It’s inevitable; when on a job most of our clients will usually always ask, “So are you guys really in College?” For most of the HUNKS who work for the Northern Virginia franchise, the answer is YES!
But classes are just one part of a very busy week for our HUNK Abel Romero. Below, Abel breaks down his schedule:
"During the week, I have solid twelve-hour days.
Three days a week I go to my internship on Capitol Hill. While I am there, I work for Congressman Randy Weber who represents Texas’s 14th District. I leave around 8 a.m. to catch the Metro that takes me to Cannon House Office Building for my 9 a.m. start.
"On the weekends, I put on the uniform of a College HUNK."
Some of the things I do at Cannon House Office Building include taking notes on hearings, sorting mail, and research on national security topics. I work there until 5 p.m., and then I get back on the Metro to return to Northern Virginia for classes which begin at 6 p.m.
I attend classes in the evenings three days a week and this semester I am taking classes that focus on terrorism, intelligence and US defense policy. This year I hope to obtain my Masters Degree in Defense and Strategic Studies.
Finally, at 9 p.m., classes are over and I can make my way home! One last Metro trip takes me back, usually around 9:30 p.m.
Needless to say on those few days, I’m pretty exhausted... but my week doesn't end there!
On the weekends, I put on the uniform of a College HUNK.
Not only does the job fit into my busy schedule, but it also gives me the opportunity to continue growing as a professional.
Junk-removal is just part of the job, I also help with administrative tasks around the office, attend events to represent the franchise and assist with marketing."
We couldn't be more proud of Abel. Like so many of our HUNKS, he proves that “Let Tomorrow’s Leaders Haul Your Junk Today” isn’t just a slogan on the truck - it’s a reality!
