Veteran Employees at work at 84 Lumber

Since 84 Lumber was founded 65 years ago, we’ve had a strong commitment to our US military members. We offer a year-round 10 percent discount for all military personnel, purple wounded warrior parking spots at all of our stores nationwide, and we host an annual “Operation Appreciation” month every May to show special appreciation to our military. During previous Operation Appreciation months, we’ve donated to military organizations, given away a tiny house to a deserving veteran, and given away materials for home renovations.

In addition, we support our military by putting a strong emphasis on hiring former service members. We’ve found that our company aligns very well with the values of military veterans. When someone retires from the military, they’re typically used to a very structured, hard working environment where they can grow and move up the ranks. That’s why veterans tend to thrive at 84 Lumber and become some of our most successful associates. On the other hand, 84 Lumber absolutely benefits from the hard-working values that our military has learned. These traits aren’t always easy to come by, and we sure do appreciate those who have them!

No experience or degree is needed to join 84 Lumber. We have a top-of-the-line training and development program, so we prepare our associates to move up quickly and become leaders at the company. To apply, visit 84lumber.com/careers.
