Pros

Menards runs on the basis that any idiot that can follow directions can work there. On the plus side if you want to work a job where you have no input and just follow instructions this is your job.

Cons

If you are someone that wants to have a say and an impact and a little more freedom with your decision making this is not the job for you.
Any advancement means great pay, but you will sacrifice your life and family the hire you go.

    Very direct Management style from all

    Old computer systems in relation to inventory

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your more permanent employees and give them credit for actually knowing what to do


  2. I have only stayed because the pay is good, company protocol is very strict with many rules and hours are not consistent

    Pros

    Pay is above average for hourly retail job. Absenses are excused with doctors excuse. Absent and lateness based on a point system.

    Cons

    Company does not seem to trust employees. Watched everywhere and many rules to be followed or you are written up for slightest infraction. Hours and schedule are very inconsistent. Shifts can be very long and then hours are cut back drastically. Only get company discount if deducted from paycheck. Management is very negative. Hard to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Management should trust their employees more and be more consistent with discipline. Management should be more positive to motivate employees and make it easier to advance.
