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

    Pros

    You will learn a lot. You will be taught things you never knew, and you will receive a lot of training in store and at corporate. There’s also a lot of room for promotion, which is the main thing.

    Cons

    A ton of work. Early mornings, late evenings. Long shifts, unrealistic goals for new MTs, but you get help. Honestly, open an hour later and close an hour earlier. And no Saturdays. Would give us better work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Management has been great. Less hours of operations

    Allow yard guys to move at a steady pace when they work on a big order alone
