Pros

Plenty of hours during the busy months, better hope you're full-time as hours are slim in the winter time.

Cons

General managers always stressing making payroll

Advice to Management

    Pros

    good pay
    fast paced
    lots of cool co-workers
    Meet some cool people
    Learn alot about which ever department your in

    Cons

    Mean customers
    Top level management doesnt care about you
    Doesnt matter how good you are, if they dont like you, then they will make it bad for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing the department managers and let them do their jobs.

  2. Friendly atmosphere, great for part time, not for full time or management

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling and decent pay for part time work. 2.50 extra per hour for weekend work. Managers get paid for every hour they are at work, no salary. Profit sharing and bonus merchandise checks for Christmas time. Managers get bonuses if their departments meet certain standards. Mostly friendly, approachable management. You can move up within the company relatively easily, if you are willing to relocate.

    Cons

    I worked at Menards for 3 years as a cashier and also did the management internship. When I was doing the internship in the plumbing department my eyes were finally opened up to how the store actually worked. The managers have terrrible hours and don't make very much. The average that I heard was around 12-13 dollars an hour. Relocation is a must if you want to move up within the company. I have a friend who is still with the company as a front end manager and she has moved just about every year since she got into management. "Crank" shifts are horrible. Working from Friday at noon to 10 pm close. Then working 7 am to 8 pm Saturday, and Sunday 8 am to 7 pm. Work life balance is not very possible when you are in management.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of when you were lower on the totem pole.
