Hurricane Andrew August 24, 1992

On August 27, 1992, I experienced a “close encounter of the strangest kind” that led me to develop a powerful new marketing strategy. That day, I saw hundreds of Home Depot trucks heading south down I-75 and I-85 through Atlanta. Seeing so many of their trucks at one time, I assumed they were having a huge convention in Florida.

I soon realized that the caravans had nothing to do with a convention, but instead, Andrew—Hurricane Andrew. Three days earlier that killer storm destroyed or damaged more than 75,000 homes and killed 65 people in South Florida.

 moreTHE WAY TO TRAIN MOVERS (and other blue-collar workers)
In the bad old days before I knew any better, I tried to train workers by becoming their friend and getting them to like me. My first real experience in training occurred when I sold a moving company client my Spider Crane invention—a device that enabled movers to transport lateral file cabinets with the contents remaining in all the drawers. As a result, their clients’ employees no longer had to pack or unpack their cabinets before or after a move—eliminating a lot of unproductive office downtime. In addition, this method guaranteed that files would not be mixed up or lost.

My typical training “classroom” was my client’s warehouse, where 20 to 30 movers gathered to learn how to operate the Spider Crane. The complex device was not user friendly—several steps were required to operate it safely.

 moreWARNING: THIS SHAPE TEST MAY BE ILLEGAL (Using it may be a violation of government regulations)

Years ago, I stumbled upon this personality test for screening prospective “white-collar” employees. Even though we found it incredibly accurate, you shouldn’t implement it unless your labor attorney confirms it’s not in violation of labor laws.

When we first started using it, we still wasted a lot of time interviewing candidates. Our laborious interview process included describing the job, asking and answering lots of questions, and giving a tour of our facility. At the very end if we were going to make an offer, we administered the test. Of course, if the interview went well, we ignored negative test results and hired the person anyway. Over time, though, we saw a direct relationship between bad test results and new hires whom we ended up letting go.
