Company Culture

84 treats people like family. They are very easy to get along with.

Freedom to work independently

If you are an outside sales person. You have the freedom to do as you please as long as your making your numbers.

Internal Communication

Nothing is kept a secret here. Daily news letters come out that are available to read for all employees.

Overall compensation for your work

The company has only survived as long as they have by not paying a decent hourly wage. They incentive to work there is their bonus system. However, getting a bonus is promised and is not always easy to do. In my experience you went most months not getting any type of bonus.

Work-Life Balance

Working weekends for this company is almost a certainty unless you work at the corporate office.

Suggestions for improvement

  • 84 wants people with high skills but wants to start the out at $10 per hour, which is not a livable wage.

What I like about the company

You will most likely be treated very nice while there. I worked at 3 different locations and everyone was always very nice and professional.

What I dislike about the company

Hours, pay to responsibility ratio is way off balance.

What I like about the company

It’s a company that understands work/life balance. That has been a major asset for me!
