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

    Pros

    Promote from within. Work with good people. Growing company with good sales and new stores opening. Random gifts sent to you for holidays.

    Cons

    Long hours. Cut throat management. Always fear being fired. Travel to stores. Long hours. Low hourly pay, but good bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people. Employee turnover will catch up to you. Invest in distribution. The company shouldn't be turned upside down on John Menard's whim.

    Pros

    Get paid every week. No salaried positions, so everyone works hourly, you get paid what you actually work. Constant training and it's pretty easy to transfer locations and departments.

    Cons

    I was constantly reminded that you could get fired at any minute. The overhead cameras always felt like big brother was watching your every move.
