    I have been working at 84 Lumber full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    84 only promotes from within the company, so you can move up very fast.

    Privately owned company. So changes and decisions can be made quickly.

    Great Benefits.

    Willing to hire with no experience and train.

    Cons

    Entry level pay is low. Sometimes it's hard to get good applicants to buy in and take the job when they don't believe how quickly you can move up.

    The rule about needing to change stores to take a promotion is not always an option for some employees (although I understand the reason for the rule)

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Love the push for better Tech.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
