EIGHTY FOUR, Pa., March 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- 84 Lumber, the nation's largest privately held building materials supplier, is launching a recruitment effort to fill immediate openings at its door shop and store locations in Tavares, Fl. The company will host a two-day Hiring Event on March 30 and 31 at the Tavares location (3751 County Rd 561, Tavares, Fl.). During both days, job seekers will learn more about the company culture and get the opportunity to be interviewed for positions that include door shop associate, lumber yard associate, driver, driver helper, and management trainee (MT).

"84 Lumber is an American company focused on putting America back to work at a time when many people are seeking employment or a fresh start during these challenging times," said Rob Woodrow, divisional vice president of the Southeast. "Now is the time for people to consider a career in the construction industry, which offers immense opportunity for growth."

Lumber yard and door shop associates need no prior experience and perform essential functions behind the scenes – from the manufacturing of doors to management of supply shipments and operation of equipment. These associates can expect a starting pay of between $10 and $15 per hour based on experience. Drivers and driver helpers load trucks and deliver materials to customer job sites. Hourly pay for the job is between $12 and $17 per hour depending on experience.

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 company. Starting compensation for management trainees is more than $40,000 per year.

"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 management trainee program," Woodrow 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 find ways for them to grow with us."

Woodrow 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. 

Candidates interested in participating in the Hiring Event are asked to pre-register for either March 30 or 31. To sign up, go to www.84americandream.com/tavares and complete the form. Once you are registered, you will receive an email from 84 Lumber with the link to apply for the desired position. To save time, candidates are strongly encouraged to apply for positions online before they attend the event.

NOTE: 84 Lumber requires all attendees to wear a mask at the event. Recruits will also be asked to practice social distancing during the Hiring Event. In addition, candidates will be required to undergo a background check and drug screening prior to receiving an offer of employment.
