I worked at Menards (more than a year)

Pros

Bonus pay on the weekends, you don't really do much work, great supporting team at my store. Perfect job for a college student

Cons

Management can be very political, have to work black friday or you're fired, if you're a fast cashier then you're guaranteed to be working that morning. High turnover occasionally, it seems as if firing sprees would happen every 6 months or so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take time in the interview process to ensure you are getting qualified candidates for the open positions.

    I have been working at Menards full-time

    Pros

    Bonus pay on weekends
    Opportunities for different employment through working with contractors
    Team members enjoy reputation of being more helpful than competitors.
    Opportunities to help guests select an item (enjoyable process)

    Cons

    Pay is not horrible but could be improved.
    Not a good chance of advancement without moving to a different state.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the "fun" factor: weekly pizza parties? shopping cart races? The environment is somewhat joyless and that is my only complaint.

    I have been working at Menards part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    have rest of day for another part time job , doc appointments, kid schedule changes. Very understanding for medical emergency but have paper work to show proof.

    Cons

    Point system a little annoying. One size fits all shifts, all employee and all situations. No one know they are going to be sick by store close night before for 5am shift. No points are given if you can drag self into work say I'm sick and go home.
