    I worked at Menards part-time (more than an year)


    The best part of my job is the people I work with and how easy it is to advance with this company. I worked there for a few months and had opportunities that I was offered, but couldn't take because it would be too much time away from my kids.


    Sometimes I feel like I am underpaid for the work that I do. As a Head Cashier, I only make $.25 cents more than a regular cashier, and I am in charge of all of them and helping managers with their work as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers expected you to devote your entire life to Menards. They frowned upon employees having any jobs anywhere else. It really just depends on who the manager is.

    I applied online on a Friday and got a call to schedule an interview on that following Monday. I interviewed that Wednesday and got sent for a drug test. I got a call back that next Monday to schedule a day where I could start work. The interview went great and the two ladies that interviewed me were very nice and didn't make me feel intimidated. I only had the one interview.
