    I have been working at Menards part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is very competitive for part-time retail, I was hired with a starting salary of $.30 above minimum wage, and raises every six months. The work isn't that hard if you don't mind the occasional irate Guest, and the people in the store are fun to work with.

    Cons

    Either too few or too many hours; part-timers are always having their hours cut while managers have to work mandatory 44-48 hr minimums, often closing the store and opening the very next day.

    Advice to Management

    Change management's scheduling to allow for more sleep, cap hours at 40, and hire more employees.

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

    Pros

    They can't legally force you not to quit:)

    Cons

    -They make ALL employees punch-in/punch-out, including bathroom breaks. Yes you heard that right, there is a gate to the bathroom that is activated by you punching out (depending on what office you are in).
    -The teams are divided into two camps 1) employees with a severe case of stockholm syndrome and 2) those planning their escape.
    -Turnover is so high that maintaining software is difficult due to the code-base being unusually fragmented and under-architected.
    -Pay and benefits are unusually terrible.

    At the end of the day, a job is a job and if you need some experience you may be forced to work here. I would only recommend working here for the minimum amount of experience needed to go somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, just don't be surprised by your high rate of turnover.
