    I worked at Menards full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you don't mind working a lot of hours, you can make good money. If you are okay to move around the midwest, you can grow with the company pretty fast.

    Cons

    Long hours if in management. Dealing with the general public is always fun... Overall, i liked Menards.

    I worked at Menards part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great job for learning about houses and residential projects, decent pay, health insurance

    Cons

    The company wants people to do training so they can give worse shifts and more responsibility, but then offer no pay increase in return. Also, the try to get their employees to do "In-Home" training for "rewards". So basically they just want you to learn the stuff on your time, and give you Menards work shirts, what a JOKE! I told them no for both things!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Menards full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good training track. Efforts awarded through bonuses. Good comradery.

    Cons

    The hourly rate is low so you must budget for the end of year bonuses. Breakroom has no sink, refrigerator, or coffee pot. Lunch breaks are only 30 minutes. The work schedule is inconsistent, close at night, and then open in the morning. Impossible to have a life outside of the Menards career. Benefits not available until the first day of the month after 90 days of employment. On your feet, all day, sometimes for 10+ hour shifts. Breaks are given but are micromanaged to the second. Always scrambling to hit the time clock on time.
