Challenging to work here, because of hours and negative management style.

I worked at Menards full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Lots of hours translated to good total income and profit sharing. Some really great people worked here, most were gone within a year.

Cons

Really hard work, often lifting heavy 75lb+ up or down onto mega rack, demanding management, harsh and negative management styles, long hours both early morning and late nights. Really poor program of having people often close and then open the next day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    People, team members and guests. There is also multiple job openings in multiple cities and states where you can promote or laterally move as much as you like.

    Cons

    No real way to move up in the company unless you want to stay on the retail side and once you move into general management min 50 hr weeks working 6 days with no time to see family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With your focus this year on retaining team members. Give them a reason to stay a couple bonuses don't make up for working 48 hrs a week waiting 3 years for 10 days vacation, and not even getting to see your family every other weekend.
