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

Pros: freedom as sales rep - individual performance based

sometimes expectations of sales goals were unrealistic. the northeast region was terrible to work for but the southeast region was great. It was because of the management of those respected areas

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

Good Place not enough money
CSR (Former Employee), YorkJanuary 7, 2014
Cons: pay
Great place to work for and great benefits. As a CSR in a tight market it is hard to make a living. I was there for one year and did not want to leave but had no other choice. I talked to the area manager about going on salary and keeping me as a CSR but no luck. The store I was at can not keep CSR because of the money. The company also needs to rethink – more... the delivery service they have. You have local companies in my area that do not charge a delivery fee and then you have 84 that wants to charge 150.00 I know they have a third party delivery service but they need to rethink that part of the business. – less
