    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Menards (Antioch, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The position was posted online on craigslist with a brief description of required duties and expectations. It was listed with compensation 'to be discussed at time of interview'. I submitted my resume, as well as a cover letter detailing why I felt my slightly incongruent experience would still make me a good candidate for the position. I was called the next day, within 24 hours, requesting me to come in to the store and interview with the GM the following day. I have a BS in unrelated fields with no HR experience whatsoever.

    Interview Questions

    • Relatively straight forward interview questions - what do you know about menards? What do you know about HR? How do you feel like your experience in unrelated fields could be an asset?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    After what I felt to be a great interview, the GM stated that the highest possible he could pay for this position was $11/hr. Considering the position REQUIRED a BA/BS, as well as a work load typical of much higher paying positions, I declined. Multiple attempts at negotiation were declined, as the GM had no power to change this number whatsoever. He even said I'd been one of the top interviewees he's spoken to in 20+ years with the company and were I to accept the position there could be possibility for corporate promotion within the year, but at $11/hour for what they were requiring, I was borderline insulted. Seemed to be a wonderful, caring manager as well as a great company to work for, but I absolutely could not accept.

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Menards (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The manager was ill-prepared to conduct interviews. As an HR professional I felt like I wanted to be the coach rather than the candidate. He was wearing his earpiece and was regularly interrupted by the sales floor during the interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Menards (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I understood the questions were directed at finding out if I was rigid about employment laws and employee rights. One should really know company policy and how their store manager views policy. An HRC will not learn how to correctly apply employment laws in their experience at Menards.

    Interview Questions

    • How I would handle managers or employees who went against company policy.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Menards (Warren, MI).

    Interview

    Submitted an application online and received a phone call for an interview the next day. The interview was more personality based. I thought it went well. I was asked to provide the Work Number report of my past jobs. The interview was towards the end of the work week so the time I was able to access it on the next business day, the company promoted within. I'm not sure why they could not verify my work history. Bring your own job history report to the interview.
