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

Pros

Friendly people, Not too corporate, learn a lot, flexible schedule for PT,

Great job for someone in college or highschool.

Cons

low pay, horrible schedules for FT

They pay a lot less than lowes, but more than home depot, full timers are required to get 40+ hours a week, or risk losing their status. Getting promoted can be a bit political.

Advice to Management

Dont force your full time team members to get 40+ hours. spread the work down to part timers.

    Pros

    Hours are up for grabs you can get as many as you want.
    Premium pay 2.50 on the weekends.
    Ability to move up within the company.

    Cons

    Hourly pay rate.
    Treatment from general office.
    Treatment in general from management.
    Un-attainable daily tasks.
    Turnover.
    No loyalty perks.
    little to no vacation.
    Long hours even if you dont want them with less then 6 hours between shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip on reality people can not function on less then 5 hours of sleep day in and day out for years. Keep your co workers happy including management and you can have a great store. Potential is only what you make of it. From what I have seen the lack of further education among general management at the store level and the general office level is absurd and hurting the company. It takes more then a "business sense" to run a successful company. You get what you put into something....
