    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Menards.

    Interview Details

    Fill out application in the store, it only takes a couple minutes to do. You then turn it in to their human resource coordinator and i would assume they look over it. It only took a couple days before i got a call about an interview, the interview didn't take very long but when it is your first one you feel like it took forever. after the interview if you get the job they call you to set up your first day and on the first day you do all your training and paper work.

    Print Advertising Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eau Claire, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eau Claire, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Menards in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and have the job after about a week. Starting today.

    I received a call for an interview about 4-6 hours after applying online, and went in the next day. My interview took over an hour because me and the interviewee got along great. She said she would have to talk to her manager and call me in a few days.
    Two days later, I got a call asking me to come in the next day. So I went in, got offered a job, and went to take the pee test, and start work today. I thought it was very courteous to have me come into the store to offer me the job instead of just over the phone.
