    Pros

    The management was extremely polite and understanding. Everyone was pretty nice and I enjoyed most of my time at Menards.

    Cons

    Pay was horrible; $8.25 starting, with a $2.50 differential if you worked Sat or Sunday. Though not minimum wage, I needed to help support a family of 3 so it doesn't go very far.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pretty simple; your sales team members need to know a ton of things (at least in Building Materials), they should be either paid better or make some kind of commission. The SPIF thing really doesn't work out very well.

    Great place to work for part time or while going to school. Not good enough pay for managers or full time employees.

    I have been working at Menards part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for part time employees. Good job for students to transfer to different colleges. Managers barely make enough to support a family. Can move up in company but must move from current location. Profit sharing is good but they dangle it like a carrot to keep employees and mistreat them.

    Cons

    Managers are over worked and under paid. Managers work long hours and every other weekend. Won't make enough full time or part time to support a family. Encouraged to up sell and sell, sell, sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is strict about things like taking long lunch breaks or not working overtime. In the past this was not the case. Satisfying the guest by being honest and not unnecessarily up-selling would increase guest topic and make more money by creating guest loyalty.
