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

Pros

It is a job. If you buy in, there are opportunities for advancement.

Cons

High turnover and poorly paid team members. Lazy or ill-equipped supervisors. Non-union.

Advice to Management

Drop the requirement of an undergrad degree to become a manager. There were plenty of capable people working there but have no chance of career advancement for lack of a degree.
