I worked at Menards part-time

Pros

High starting wage. I worked at two different stores (after a move) and one was better than the other in terms of flexibility. I am a dependable and competent worker so I tend to have better experiences in retail than some coworkers. If you're reliable, you'll get the better schedule. Rarely did you have to stay late (maybe the day before Thanksgiving..) as to be expected to prepare for Black Friday.

Cons

Not enough training for specialized departments. They offer video on-line training which is tied into raises, but you should be paid to do those training sessions.

Advice to Management

Train, train, train. I can't tell you how many times I went to Menards as a customer and just shook my head at the nonsense the employees were making up. Departments such as plumbing, electrical, millwork really need competent, knowledgeable employees.
