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

Pros

I thought the pay was good (around $9 on week days, after you got your high school diploma, and then an extra $2.50 per hour on weekends!), at least from the perspective of a teenager.
I usually found management to be nice!
Menard's sends out little gifts on all the holidays, which is just a really fun gesture.

Cons

I usually had trouble leaving my shift on time. Often had to ask repeatedly if I could go clock out now that my scheduled shift was over.
In the winter, it gets SUPER cold by the checkout lines. Double doors into the store would have helped. My hands often went numb.

    Pros

    Having some job. paycheck, paying bills.

    Cons

    Some General Office desicions don't make any sense. The management has no respect for Team Members. Everyone is in constant fear and paranoia from General Office and upper management.
    Terrible schedule, no life outside of work, especially if you are a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get your head out of your a..s.
