Great employer

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

Pros

They are willing to teach you for any position. There is also room to move up and grow with the company.

Cons

It was hard for me get days off when going to school because we were short staffed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

everything was great, just make sure managers are ready for their tasks at hand

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

    Pros

    The pay is very competitive for part-time retail, I was hired with a starting salary of $.30 above minimum wage, and raises every six months. The work isn't that hard if you don't mind the occasional irate Guest, and the people in the store are fun to work with.

    Cons

    Either too few or too many hours; part-timers are always having their hours cut while managers have to work mandatory 44-48 hr minimums, often closing the store and opening the very next day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change management's scheduling to allow for more sleep, cap hours at 40, and hire more employees.

    I have been working at Menards

    Pros

    Great place to meet people, and a pretty relaxed environment. Discount is okay, the profit sharing is worth waiting for, and there is room to grow if you're willing to travel. They really work with you and help you with scheduling if needed.

    Cons

    Not a very challenging or rewarding job, and you almost have to travel when trying to move up in the company. If you are management, it's almost a requirement or you get demoted. It's almost impossible to get fired, you really have to try or just not show up at all. Management can be fickle, and not always professional. Benefits are laughable, and not even worth it if you're part-time. Regular retail hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have better benefits for part-time employees and treat people like people.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
