Former Employee - Cashier in Palatine, IL
Former Employee - Cashier in Palatine, IL

I worked at Menards part-time (more than an 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.

    Current Employee - Department Manager
    Current Employee - Department Manager

    I have been working at Menards full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities for new managers and those willing to relocate. Many new store openings each year provide endless opportunities for promotion.

    Cons

    Must be willing to relocate - no exceptions. Other than that - just the hassle of retail hours, but this is not exclusive to Menard's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get into the heads of your selling dept. mgrs and listen to what their experiences are.
