I worked at 84 Lumber full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great entry level opportunity into retail and construction industries. Most people you work with become close friends. Think of it as a second family. The pay can be decent if you are in a good store location. Otherwise it's a long journey.

Cons

Standard work week consists of 48 hours as a MT and Co. As a manager bank on working 50-56 hours a week. Manager pay is too bonus weighted. Goals for bonuses are sometimes unobtainable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't manage by intimidation. It only causes jadedness. Set realistic goals for stores. Stop being so aggressive with your corp. numbers and let the stores hit quota. Corp needs to be reminded that this is a "down" economy.
