Print Advertising Technician Interview

Print Advertising Technician
Eau Claire, WI

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Menards.

Interview Details – I received a call for an interview the day after I had applied (you must submit your portfolio along with your application). The HR rep that I spoke with was incredibly personable and kind. We set up an interview for the next day, and they sent detailed instructions on the location of the interview and the individuals that I would be meeting with. When I arrived for my interview, everyone was quite friendly and established a relaxed interview environment. They had me fill out a short questionnaire on drugs and theft, and then I met with the department manager for the area I was applying along with the head HR representative. They asked me questions, alloted time for me to ask them questions, and then the department manager left while the HR representative went over the wage and benefits (which started out at $12 and hour). Although the interview process was mostly positive, I was dissatisfied with the length of time it took to get back to me. The HR rep told me that they would contact me in about a week to two at the latest, but they did not contact me until over a month after my interview.

Interview Question – They asked me what I thought of Menards' advertising.   View Answer

Assistant Department Manager Interview

Assistant Department Manager
Minneapolis, MN

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Menards in April 2014.

Interview Details – Only one interview. Was asked questions such as how I handle agitated guests, how I lead others, why Menards, if I can handle stress, and if I like to work hard. Interview wasn't very private; held in an open air cubicle where you can hear everything going on around you. Seems like a good place to start a managing career in retail.

Interview Question – How would your current manager describe you?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Salary isn't negotiable, only the date you can start, in which they were flexible.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Wyoming, MI

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Menards in April 2014.

Interview Details – Filled out an application and was called a few days later. Scheduled an interview for the next day. Rather easy interview, however, the store doesn't seem to have a grasp on it's organization and doesn't like to follow up. The HR guy said I would know within a day or two whether or not I got the job and he never called, so I called him, but he never called me back. After finally getting in touch with him he said he'd let me know by the end of the week and I never heard anything.

Interview Question – How to use a measuring tape   Answer Question

Morning Stocker Interview

Morning Stocker
Ottumwa, IA

I applied in-person and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Menards in May 2012.

Interview Details – When I first applied to Menards, it took a while before I heard anything back. A month went by and I called HR several times to let them know I was interested in working with them. I finally received a call back and was asked to come in for an interview. It was pretty straight forward. You go through your previous work history, education, etc. The HR lady went over what jobs were available at that time. (Only Morning Stocker and Cashier was available for part-time.) Basic questions were asked like the "Tell me a time something difficult happened to you. How did you handle it and what was the outcome?" It's what almost every interview asks. Once it was over she offered me the position and I began training two days later.

Interview Question – They weren't difficult or unexpected at all. if you've had an interview before it's the same ones every company asks.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You can't negotiate the pay.
