    I worked at Menards full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Great place for someone to work without a college degree with a potential to earn a lot of money, over 100k if you hit the GM level.

    Cons

    -When you hit management, the work hours are long and horrible.
    -No work life balance
    -Most people who are in management are not college educated, meaning catty, immature twenty year old's, with management and people skills of a 16 year old pms-ing girl end up in management.

    Advice to Management

    There are stores that promote the right people with excellent management skills and people skills. These are the stores that run smoothly. If the wrong people are promoted, (what usually happens) the working at Menards is like high school all over again.

    I have been working at Menards full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay, nearly unlimited hours/overtime during busy season, profit sharing,

    Cons

    Very restrictive: Taking a meal break longer than 35 minutes results in punishment.

    No consideration given to existing freight/overstock levels before sending more freight. "Good deal buys" often result in having much more freight on hand than room to store.

    Despite their claims about how confidentiality is important, store management and human resources desks are out in the open, accessible to any employee who happens to walk by...a lot of confidential employee documents left in the open until management finds the time to lock them up.

    Keeping payroll tight is so important that we are often left without enough staff to do our jobs effectively. Often the customer or store housekeeping suffers as a result.

    As a manager, I rarely if ever see my family on weekends because I typically work until store close, often not getting home until 11 pm.

    Advice to Management

    Longer meal breaks, more payroll, take existing freight levels and available storage room into account when sending freight. More flexibility with weekend hours.
