A successful, hard driven, diverse, and familial retail lumber yard
Co-Manager (Current Employee) – location – January 14, 2018
If you are an individual who is hard working and who wants to gain managerial experience, industry knowledge, retail experience, and promotion opportunities 84 is a great company to work for. You need to be focus, hard working, and willing to give up the time.
84 invests and equips their employees with so much knowledge and experience - if someone can endure the 6ish months of the Manager Trainee role in order to be promoted to another position at a successful store, it pays off with even more experience and financial stability.
I would say it is not for everyone and if you are looking for an easy job - you will not last or be promoted. I also would say the long hours do not provide a healthy long term work setting, yet it does equip people with the experience to grow and move into other industries. The long you endure and harder you work to gain experience the more benefits you gain, yet the less time you will have.
I have been very successful in the company, yet do not want to put the burden of the long hours on my family. I can look back and confidently say that I was a main reason for the success of the stores I have worked in, and helped customers achieve their dreams.
Qualities required: hard working, responsible, professional, self motivating, humble, and personable. You will work with and serve clients of all statuses and ethnicities. You are required to be clean shaven.
