    I have been working at 84 Lumber full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you're willing to work the growth and earning potential is endless. Promotion is very quick. If you work hard and are willing to relocate any at all you can go from a manager trainee to a co-manager and manager an about 3 years. You gain friend while working here and those friends become like family. The people at team headquarters are great to work with as well.

    Cons

    You cant be a lazy person and work here. It gets cold in the winter and got in the summer. In the end it's very much worth it however.

    Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at 84 Lumber (Dayton, OH).

    Interview

    Met with the store manager. We walked the yard and warehouse. So as long as you can read, write, and handle simple geometric mathematical functions you are ideal. However you must be able to fit in, fitting in is what makes or breaks your opportunity. Just be yourself Small workplace means you spend alot of time with the same individuals.
