I worked at 84 Lumber

Pros

It was a relaxed fun place to work, the ability to do real work not just be an order taker, very educational, and an excellent opportunity to build off of. Great training program that they pay to send you to and compensation raises based on completion.

Cons

Pay left somehwat to be desired but wasn't horrible when you made it past manager trainee. Working saturdays was pointless. Long Long days sometimes. Overall I can't say that I would not do it again however.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall doing a good job I believe. The severance package could have been paid on time. And don't move someone to a different store 3 times and then leave them with out a job because you shut it down. But who can help that I guess.

    Pros

    If you have a great economy and great local market you can do very well for yourself.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else.
    84 has little to no concern for you. There is NO loyalty whatsoever.
    Very little guidance from senior management.
    Poor working conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Terrible pay. Poor working conditions. No leadership. You have alot to change. Probably too much.
