“At 84 Lumber, we are on the leading edge of the ongoing rise in residential construction across the nation,” said Rob Woodrow, divisional vice president at 84 Lumber. “Greater demand for our products means a need for more motivated, dedicated employees who want to take advantage of the phenomenal growth opportunity in our industry. If you have a strong work ethic and are eager for something new, you could be the perfect fit for us.”
Hiring event attendees will participate in job interviews, learn more about 84 Lumber’s company culture, and get more details about signing bonuses being offered for certain positions. Some attendees may receive a job offer on site. Open positions include:
- Project superintendents are responsible for supervising and inspecting job sites, ensuring a safe work environment, and establishing building sequence, dates, and a manner to carry out work. Starting base salary is $55,000 per year and a $3,000 sign-on bonus.
- Manager trainees (MTs), who enter an intensive, one-on-one, on-the-job training program that teaches them about the company’s business and puts them on a path to become a future leader within the enterprise. Starting compensation for manager trainees is $40,000 per year plus monthly incentive compensation, which averages $4,500 per year. MTs also receive a $500 sign-on bonus.
- Yard associates. Applicants need no prior experience and perform essential functions behind the scenes – from the management of supply shipments to the operation of equipment. Starting pay is between $15 to $18 per hour depending on experience.
“As a family-owned company, 84 Lumber is committed to helping our employees build a long-term career with us. We are proud to say that 95% of our store managers started in our manager trainee program,” Woodrow said. “We believe that a wide variety of candidates can find a home with the company and open doors for themselves – a person with no construction experience but a desire to learn, military veterans ready to open their next chapter, or someone simply ready to make a fresh start. We’ll give every one of them the tools to grow.”
Candidates interested in participating in the Hiring Event should pre-register online and complete the form. Registrants will then receive an email from 84 Lumber with the link to apply for the desired position.
