    Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at 84 Lumber.

    Interview

    Applied and got a call the next day, did the brief phone interview. Went into the store and did some basic construction math. They're basically looking for Store Associates with the "prospects" of becoming a manager. Was offered near minimum wage with a bachelors degree and 2 years professional experience. They need to review the job description, a highschool student is qualified for this job. Does not look good on the company to try and pull this stunt on professional level workers.

    Installed Sales Manager/Ft Myers, Florida Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Myers, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at 84 Lumber (Fort Myers, FL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I felt the interviewer was a bit of a bully. Seemed very negative and intimidating from the beginning to the end of interview. I was very surprised that 84 Lumber was acting as a shell contractor that was directly involved in homebuilding itself. If his management of employees was similar to his attitude toward people interviewed I would not recommend working at this location.

    Maybe he felt my thirty years of experience was more threatening to his own position.
