I worked at Menards part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

is a well established company with policies that are made to treat you fair. call workers become a family, you learn useful things for life, if you are willing to relocate it is easy to move up in the company

Cons

some policies do not always treat the employee fairly, lots of cleaning, is a retail store so I expect lots of customer service with selling to all kinds of people, open on most holidays and weekends

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat all employees fairly

    Pros

    Ok money seeing that you work a thousand hours anyway.
    Great if u have good team members working with you.
    Great if u didn't go to college

    Cons

    No life outside of work once you are a manager 55+hours a week even have to close at 10 and be back at 630 am the next day

    Management only cares when corporate comes to the store, everybody loses they mind in fear of losing their jobs including GM's

    Some people believe u are licensed plumbers, electricians, etc. Just don't get it sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the company policies are not very good at all
    Give people time to enjoy there lives outside of work, unhappy workers lead to terrible perormance.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers get along well enough and managers of departments do a fairly good job.

    Cons

    Management switches quite often so I was never able to get used to one manager's process. During my short time we switched out our main department manager once and the assistant manager twice.
