Very Easy Interview

Morning Stocker Interview

Morning Stocker
Bloomington, IN

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Menards in July 2009.

Interview Details – Very easy job interview, the hardest question I had was "can you show up every day at 5am?" There are quite a few really good morning stockers, however, the amount of turnover for soooo many weird and awful employees at this position makes it an easy interview. Interviewing for a higher paying job in this company would make it more difficult, howver, for this position all you have to do is show some regular intelligence and it will go well.

Interview Question – Really didnt have one. Very straightforward. Can you stock, read aisles, clean after yourself, etc..   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations, $7.85 start pay.

Building Materials Team Member Interview

Building Materials Team Member
Valparaiso, IN

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Menards in August 2011.

Interview Details – The application is super straight forward and pretty much leads you straight into getting hired. All they really look for is that you have some type of experience even if it's just mowing lawns. If you are under 18 forget about even applying. The interviews are with the HR and possible department manager. As long as you look presentable(collected shirt and blue jeans) and have a sense of humor you are basically a shoe in. All that's left is the drug test and you are in

Interview Question – Are you willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done   View Answers (2)
