    Pros

    Profit sharing, payroll bonus, manager bonus, lots of opportunities for advancement as long as you are willing to travel.

    Cons

    Not enough time for anything else closing then opening days spent off are spent preparing to go back to work.

    Advice to Management

    A rolling schedule where we could have the same schedule would make life with Menards a lot better

    Pros

    My coworkers are the nicest people and are very easy to talk to. The more experienced team members are excellent and polite about giving advice to new hires. I feel very prepared to handle multiple types of "out-of-the-ordinary" workplace experiences. Regular pay raises, $2.00 extra per hour on weekends, and flexible scheduling makes it a wonderful place to work!

    Cons

    They will not promote you if you are currently a student in high school or college, which means you do not get any other raises besides the company-wide scheduled ones (ten cent per hour raise after three months, after six months, again after a year, and after every six months after). This also means that the team members who are more driven, focused, and better at managing their time are not allowed to help the store where they could be most useful.

    Advice to Management

    Offer other advancement opportunities that are not limited by a team member's outside life choices.
