Management has alot of down falls
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee), Sidney, OHJuly 22, 2014
84 was a very trying place to work. I worked there for 10 years and put in between 50-75 hours every week. The culture at the particular one I worked at was a do it for yourself concept. The manager was upset if his salesman made more money than he did. He made it very tough to grow business, he would personally go out and offer customers lower prices – more... than the sales rep to try and gain their loyalty to him instead of the salesman. When the area became saturated with 84's the salesman from other stores would hit on long term customers of other stores and under price them. The upper management really took a hit when Maggie Magerko took over the company from her father. Her thoughts were not the best for business. – less

Productive, very busy.
Accounts Receivable/Customer Care (Former Employee), Conroe, TXJune 12, 2014
Pros: the hours, mon thru fri, 8 to 5, no holidays, no weekends.
Cons: the disrespect
calling A/R accounts, invoicing, billing, taking phone orders, setting up deliveries, and working front counter helping customers with their building needs. Manager wanted buddies more than employees. The one othe female employee was like me, and stayed very busy all the time. The yard guys would get our orders together even if they were busy building – more... delivery loads. The Assist manager was young, a buddy to the manager, and disrespected woman. The hardest part was trying to keep all departments running from point to point smoothly. I loved my job. The job I did there was the base key to all opperations. – less

TOO much play
Driver (Former Employee), Tavares,FlMay 27, 2014
Pros: hours were great
Cons: not a job for a family man
84 Lumber wasn't a bad company to work for if you are young with no kids. Pay is not very great, but you make up for it in the overtime pay. 62 hours a week at $9 hour. Management were not that great, no matter what you did good or bad everything is your fault if you make a mistake. The work was easy but, there was a lot of heavy lifting and long days. – more... you will be there more than you are at home with your family. The co-workers played more than worked – less

Contractor Sales Representative (Former Employee), Harmarville, PAApril 10, 2014
Pros: freedom as sales rep - individual performance based

Sales
Co-Manager (Former Employee), Fallston, MDApril 7, 2014
At this company, most days consisted of sales, assisting customers, store maintenance, coordinating deliveries and employee supervision. Multi-tasking was a part of every day. Gained extensive knowledge of building products. The team of associates are very motivated to serve the customer and provide excellent service. Some days could be very challenging – more... due to high volume of sales and delivery commitments. Having a customer come back and tell us that the products they purchased and service they received were of the highest caliber is a great feeling. – less
