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

Pros

Friendly people, Not too corporate, learn a lot, flexible schedule for PT,

Great job for someone in college or highschool.

Cons

low pay, horrible schedules for FT

They pay a lot less than lowes, but more than home depot, full timers are required to get 40+ hours a week, or risk losing their status. Getting promoted can be a bit political.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dont force your full time team members to get 40+ hours. spread the work down to part timers.

    Pros

    ability to work as a lot of hours and make overtime also IPS every year

    Cons

    Its retail so you work a lot of hours and every holiday. You make money not through weekly check but to through bonuses.

    I have been working at Menards part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Other employees
    Flexible schedule (for part timers)
    Get schedule 2 weeks in advance
    Lots of room for advancement, more so if you are willing to move

    Cons

    Retail hours
    Lots of cleaning when not busy (again, just retail)
    Culture of each store is different so some stores are better than others to work for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With rapid expansion we need more distribution centers and to hold Menard vendors more accountable (especially for special orders).
