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

Pros

I thought the pay was good (around $9 on week days, after you got your high school diploma, and then an extra $2.50 per hour on weekends!), at least from the perspective of a teenager.
I usually found management to be nice!
Menard's sends out little gifts on all the holidays, which is just a really fun gesture.

Cons

I usually had trouble leaving my shift on time. Often had to ask repeatedly if I could go clock out now that my scheduled shift was over.
In the winter, it gets SUPER cold by the checkout lines. Double doors into the store would have helped. My hands often went numb.

Advice to Management

Respect employees' time

    I have been working at Menards full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities for new managers and those willing to relocate. Many new store openings each year provide endless opportunities for promotion.

    Cons

    Must be willing to relocate - no exceptions. Other than that - just the hassle of retail hours, but this is not exclusive to Menard's.

    Advice to Management

    Get into the heads of your selling dept. mgrs and listen to what their experiences are.

    I worked at Menards part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, and sometimes get good managers

    Cons

    The atmosphere is awful, cheap company, bad discount and benefits, and just terrible funk that is always in the air from employees. Very demanding for the pay

    Advice to Management

    Just be cool, respectable managers do the work with the employees, and give them responsibility and tell them when they are doing a good job
