SALES SALES SALES

Manager Trainee (Current Employee)

I have been working at 84 Lumber full-time for more than a year

ProsYou can control pricing pretty well, which can give you an edge. Money can be good if you hit sales goals.

ConsAdvancement. If you don't want to be in outside sales, you have to change stores to move up in management. Which leads to managment, your not a store manager your a sales manager. All crtitcal thinking is done at corp HQ and not at the store level. Mandatory 48 hour work week.

Advice to Senior ManagementDont mico manage and decentralize your operations.
