    I worked at 84 Lumber full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great opportunity for a career with an outstanding company, even if you have no prior wxperience. Compensation is set up in a way that you are paid a regular hourly pay, plus incentives based on your performance (which only people with little or no drive would not appreciate). With 84, you are also promoted based on performance.

    Cons

    There are not many cons here, the only thing I can say is this: if you are looking for a "job", and want to get a paycheck every week while doing the least amount of work possible, this is not for you. With 84, you will work hard, and when you do, you will be rewarded for it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't settle for anything, in regard to people or standards. Consistently look for ways to make yourself, your store, and your company better.

    I have been working at 84 Lumber full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You can make as much money as you want depending on what position you are in. The pay can be very lucrative if you put in the effort. I like working for a privately owned company that is transparent with the financials and it feels like we work for our family instead of a corporation.

    Cons

    Longs hours would be the biggest, but as long as you stay busy, the day goes by fast.

    Advice to Management

    Within 12 months of starting with the company I was managing a store. If you work hard and try your best everyday, advancements can be very quick.

    I have been working at 84 Lumber full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Team atmosphere Freedom to run store to fit the market Excellent bonus opportunities and competitive salary Great ownership, owner cares about her people

    Cons

    If you lack work ethic, you need not apply. This is a physical job from manager trainee to manager. Heavy diet of math as well.
