EIGHTY FOUR, PA. (July 20, 2022) – 84 Lumber, the nation’s largest privately held building materials supplier, is recruiting for nearly 15 immediate openings at its locations in the Buffalo area as the company’s business continues to expand nationwide.

“At 84 Lumber, we are on the leading edge of the ongoing rise in residential construction across the nation,” said Phil Garuccio, 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 and learn more about 84 Lumber’s company culture. Some attendees may receive a job offer on site.
- 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 $46,000 to $50,000 per year.
- Window/door service technicians are responsible for servicing windows to builders, including installing screens, balancing windows, and replacing glass.

“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,” Garuccio 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.”
