    I have been working at Menards full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, Good corporate structure, Profit sharing, Good training (in Theory) - The advancement training system they have set up is a good idea.

    Cons

    Poor moral, Favoritism, Sexual harassment, Pressure/threats to work past scheduled hours and do work outside job description, Poor training (in practice) - Management at my current location previously lost his position due to sexual harassment lawsuit filed against the company when he "fraternized" on the premises with a lower lever employee. Five years later he has a GM position again and is up to his old tricks. He has a group of favorites he ignores policy for and allows them to violate Menard's policy while he fires others who he doesn't like on a personal level for minor infractions. He's going to get this company in trouble again and probably cost them more $$. Laugh at his jokes and flirt with him if you work here if you value your position because the Management is a cabal of "Yes Men/Women" who are willing to kiss the GM's ass to keep their jobs ... although the bad mouth him behind his back. The GM is unreasonable in many of his requests and often does his best to try and make others look/feel less competent than him. He will belittle and insult others, but he instantly responds with threats to imagined insults he thinks are aimed at him.

    Advice to Management

    Similar to your "secret shopper" program you should institute a "secret employee" program so that you can see what's going on in your stores when there is no announced GO visit. Retrain your managers in understanding what sexual harassment (to employees and guests) is and how to avoid it. Emphasize training is to actually be executed and not just signed off on as "completed" with a system of periodic checks and balances.

    If you work in retail, you know what to expect, at least you dont get your face spit in on a day to day...
