    Many opportunities to advance if you work hard. No experience needed, they are willing to train if you are willing to learn.

    I worked at Menards part-time

    Pros

    I highly enjoyed working at menards. They were super good with my school hours and were okay with my short shifts, the benefits were crazy good, the pay was good especially for the simplicity of the job.

    Cons

    The only thing i did not really like while working for this company was that the only way i got a discount is if it came directly out of my paycheck. I did not like that we had front end meetings late at night because i was just getting out of college classes and having to rush to work and was always late. i also did not like that they were so strict on us standing at our register, standing on concrete in one spot all day hurt! I would ask to go tot the restroom and they would tell me to wait and i would end up holding it until the end of my shift.
