    I have been working at 84 Lumber full-time for 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.

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

    Pros

    As much overtime as you want in some stores. Most store employees are decent people. There are promotion opportunities if you're willing to move , (mostly out of state).

    Cons

    Pay is low. No promotions within so more than likely leave the store you've got comfortable in. If there are mistakes they have no problem getting rid of you to not lose a contract. Long hours but you need the long hours to live because the pay is too low.

    Advice to Management

    Stick up for the little guy. Try to promote within. Dont let your salesman and clients run the store
