    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at 84 Lumber in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The "hiring manager" asked inappropriate questions not pertaining to my qualifications in a room you could have stored meat in. It appeared he didn't even look at my resume and acted like I was wasting his time cause I was obviously not good enough for 84 Lumber. Why did they even bother. What a waste of time.
