    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Menards (Bismarck, ND) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty basic, they are looking to see where you would fit well. If you appear to have any ability talking to people they will probably put you in sales. If you don't but look like you have some strength then you will probably be put in receiving. If you have neither they will probably make you a cashier.

    Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Massillon, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Menards (Massillon, OH) in May 2017.

    Interview

    After making me wait for 30 minutes past, even though I had arrived early, the store manager didn't understand the difference between a contractor and an employee when he asked about my work experience. He was too difficult to talk to, didn't understand anything I said which was evident by the bewildered look he kept giving me when he did look at me. Poor eye contact, weak hand shake, kept staring at the table and flipping pages randomly. Gave me the impression that he was completely inexperienced at even giving a simple interview. I'm sorry I wasted the fuel to go.

    • All questions were pertaining to if you used drugs, approved of stealing, and participated in fist fights.   Answer Question
