    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Menards (Homer Glen, IL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Very relaxed, non-professional interview with an HR employee and the GM. Basically, the stores are not looking for you to work a position at the location you are interested in and applying to. They want to train you, then send you where needed which will most likely end up with high commute times or even require relocation. Both options were not what I was looking for, and because of that I was not offered the position even though I have retail, managerial & entrepreneurial experience of over 20 years.

    Interview Questions

    • There was nothing unexpected or difficult outside of wanting you to relocate.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Menards.

    Interview

    The interview only lasted about 20 minutes and they offered me the job. With a 4-year college degree, I am well beyond overqualified for the job, but I needed a paycheck until I found something real. I walked in, the General Manager, 2 assistants, and HR Coordinator were all there. The GM asked me a bunch of questions about my experience and what I would bring to the table and after I gave all my answers, they offered me the job on the spot. It was very quick and painless.

    Very informal and just asked the basic questions...put a lot of pressure on myself to come up with questions to ask during the interview.
