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

      Pros

      -Tons of overtime (Both Con and Pro depending on your view) -84 will typically promote you within 6-10 months -After a year you'll probably be making $50,000+ -Plenty of different avenues to pursue in 84 Lumber after being an MT (Sales, Install Manager, Production, Corporate, etc)

      Cons

      -Tons of overtime (Both Con and Pro depending on your view) -This job is most definitely physical in some aspect so it can stray young women away -The life/work balance can be difficult (Average 50-60 hrs per week) -Steep learning curve if you don't know anything about the industry but doable -You most likely have to move to promote

      Advice to Management

      It helps if Manager Trainee's actually learn to manage people. Currently, MT's receive no training regarding the management of people which is imperative to succeed later on.
