    Current Employee - Head Cashier in Hanover Park, IL

    I have been working at Menards part-time (more than 5 years)


    -Good day (weekend $2.50 extra)
    -Lots of hours during the summer time, it does slow down during winter but you can still get enough.
    -can easily move up the ladder into management.


    -It is a retail job, so work seclude during early mornings, afternoons, and night.
    -Corporate office interferes to much, when you are trying to run a smooth business.
    -Managers can do pick and choose for fav's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want the company to keep grown, learn to treat you employees a lot better.
    (45min lunch time- Because some menards are in the middle of no where, it takes 15 mins to drive to a restaurant.)
