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

    Pros

    - Busy work environment, lots of projects to work on when not helping guests.
    - Profit sharing.
    - Promote from within and encourage advancement.
    - Employee discount.
    - Plenty of hours and overtime.
    - Helping guests do projects makes selling easier and more enjoyable.
    - SPIFs and in store merchandise vouchers as rewards and prizes throughout the year.
    - Get lots of exercise working here!
    - Frequent progress reviews and raises.

    Cons

    - Long days, on your feet for the entire time.
    - Can be physically demanding (stocking freight, helping guests carry and load items, etc).
    - It's still retail, so you will always have crabby customers.
    - Not the best medical benefits but dental is decent.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on training your underlings the best you can. Don't be afraid that you will "train your replacement". The more they can do, the smoother your department/store will run.

    I have been working at Menards full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Instant profit sharing (if you work at least 1000 hours a year), small gifts during holidays and on your birthday

    Cons

    No chance of taking time off without being penalized if you need time off and don't have vacation days. Only get profit sharing if you work more than 1000 hours, but you might still work a heck of a lot harder than someone who does work full time.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees, recognize when they do good and not just the employees that you like either.
