84 Lumber, the nation’s largest privately held building materials supplier, is launching a recruitment effort to fill immediate openings in Tempe, AZ. The company will host a Hiring Event on September 2nd from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the 84 Lumber Company Western Office (8950 South 52nd Street, Suite 208, Tempe, AZ 85284).
At the event, job seekers will learn more about the company culture and get the opportunity to be interviewed for open positions in the area including warehouse and forklift associates and non-CDL truck drivers. Qualified job seekers may receive an offer of employment during the event.
“84 Lumber is seeking to fill open positions at our Tempe retail store to add to our team of more than 50 employees in the area,” said Jorge Espinoza, divisional vice president at 84 Lumber. “We’re growing along with the growth in the construction industry – here in Tempe and across the nation. We’re looking for people seeking a fresh start.”
Espinoza went on to detail the openings in the region:
- Warehouse and forklift associates need no prior experience and perform essential functions behind the scenes – from the management of supply shipments to the operation of forklifts and other equipment. These associates can expect a starting pay of up to $15 per hour.
- Non-CDL truck drivers load trucks and deliver materials to customer job sites. Drivers are responsible for building loads for deliveries; maintaining a safe, clean, and well-organized lumber yard; and loading and unloading lumber and building supplies. Hourly pay for drivers is up to $16 per hour.
Espinoza 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.
“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,” Espinoza 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.”
