    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Menards (Eau Claire, WI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied at a job fair on campus, was asked to do 20 minute phone interview. After phone interview, was asked to come for an on site interview. The on site interview started with a two hour test. It consisted of a 5 part test, that tested your logic, math, spelling, and pattern recognition. This was then followed by a 50 question Java specific test asking different keyword, identifiers, classes, and various things about Java.

    After the two hours of testing, I had a face to face interview with two of the staff. Only took about twenty minutes and the questions weren't too difficult. Asked various questions about java, what classes I took, what are my career goals, etc. This on site interview was the last step in the process.

    The whole process took about 2 1/2 weeks.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Menards (Germantown, WI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter at a career fair. Called him the next day and he set up an interview a week later. Interview was with store manager and recruiter and was fairly easy, standard strength/weakness/experience questions. They called me the next morning and offered me the job. If you do not have your degree yet they will make you wait, but gives you time to get everything in order (quitting current job, enjoying some time off in between, etc.)

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Menards (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Menards called me and the woman on the other side had said my interview was to be at 6pm the following day. I got to menards at 5:34 pm and they did not attend me till 6:45 when someone finally approached me and said that they had no interviews scheduled. Big waste of time and they promised to call me back but never did. Ask for the person who called name and make sure of the time and date they say.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Menards in January 2015.

    Interview

    Had 1 interview over the phone. The HR coordinator I was in contact with asked me times available for the interview and simply never replied after I sent her times that would work for me. I had to send a follow up email roughly a week later making sure she had received my email and ended up with the phone interview that day. After that, as of now I have not received any sort of reply even though was told within 2 weeks I would hear back from them. The lack of contact and feedback was rather unprofessional I think personally. Overall not a good interview experience. It has now been over 3 weeks since phone interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Menards in November 2014.

    Interview

    Simply on-line application. An interview was set up and was very informal, but thorough. Typical interview questions: Why Menards, my strengths, weakness? A paper test was given regarding internal theft situations-but again simple questions./

I only had the one interview.
