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

    Pros

    Benefits, my store was very understanding with time off and scheduling.

    Cons

    A lot of people come and go, so getting called in to cover shifts of people who would not show up was hard.

    Great opportunity to help guests on a daily basis and increase company growth through hard work and passion for excellence. Great benefits.

    I have been working at Menards full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for advancement within the company especially if you are willing to relocate. Adequate pay for retail. 10% Discount on home improvement needs as long as you are fine with purchases coming directly out of your paycheck.

    Cons

    Poor benefits. I mean complete rubbish if you want affordable insurance, 401k contribution, or even holidays and vacations. Plenty of micromanagement across all positions.
