EIGHTY FOUR, Pa., April 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — 84 Lumber, the nation’s largest privately held building materials supplier, is launching a recruitment effort to fill immediate openings at its retail and manufacturing locations in the greater Pittsburgh area. The company will host a Hiring Event on April 27 at the Hampton Inn in Bridgeville, PA (150 Old Pond Road, Bridgeville, PA), located just minutes from 84 Lumber’s Bridgeville store. At the event, job seekers will learn more about the company culture and get the opportunity to be interviewed for up to 30 open positions in the area that include manager trainee (MT); lumber yard, warehouse, and production associate; driver; office/operations manager; and field operations manager.

«84 Lumber is a Pittsburgh-based company with deep roots in the region. We have 17 stores and one manufacturing plant within 50 miles of Pittsburgh, and we employ nearly 800 associates in the area,» said Phil Garuccio, divisional vice president at 84 Lumber. «We’re growing along with the growth in the construction industry – here in our hometown region of Pittsburgh and across the nation. We’re looking for people seeking a fresh start.»

Garuccio went on to detail the openings in the region:

  • Manager trainees (MTs) hired by 84 Lumber 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 more than $40,000 per year.

  • Lumber yard, warehouse, and production associates need no prior experience and perform essential functions behind the scenes – from the management of supply shipments to the operation of equipment. Production associates work in the manufacturing processes related to engineered wood products, trusses, and components. These associates can expect a starting pay of between $12 and $17 per hour based on experience.

  • Drivers load trucks and deliver materials to customer job sites. Hourly pay for the job is between $12 and $17 per hour depending on experience.

  • Office/operations manager positions can serve as a springboard into the different departments at 84 Lumber’s headquarters, including Pricing, Inventory Management, Human Resources, and Purchasing. Starting compensation is approximately $38,000 to $40,000 annually depending on experience.

  • Field operations managers are part of the company’s field operations team, which provide support to the stores. These individuals assist with operations projects at various locations. Starting pay is $45,000 to $50,000 depending on experience.

«We are a family-owned company, which means we are committed to helping our employees build and cultivate a career with us. In fact, 95% of our store managers started in our manager trainee program,» Garuccio said. «As we see it, 84 Lumber recruits individuals with a can-do attitude, a willingness to work hard, and a desire to learn. Once we find these people and they join the company, we teach and train them and find ways for them to grow with us.»

Garuccio added that 84 Lumber expects it might find the right fit from all types of candidates – an individual with no construction experience, military veterans ready to embark on their next career challenge, or people with some previous work experience who seek to redirect their career.
