    I have been working at Menards part-time

    Pros

    I am willing to work there, and my position is good. The place is very closed to where I live.

    Cons

    I want Menards to give me more hours. And the position is okay for the time. The position is slow when the store is not too busy

    Advice to Management

    I want more hours. At times, the management wants some of us to leave sooner than later.

    I have been working at Menards part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a part time employee, hours are flexible. Good job for students.

    Cons

    Expected to do many jobs, plus take care of guests. Often put on manager role but get part time pay. Pay drops more than $2 per hour if you go from full time to part time even tho your responsibilities are the same.

    Advice to Management

    Make the guest your priority. I know it SAYS that you do but you cannot run a store understaffed, to meet payroll, and expect great guest service AND get the tasks done in a timely manner. Appreciate your good help

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

    Pros

    If you are full time, you'll get the hours, even mandatory overtime. So you are never having to fight for that.

    Cons

    Insurance is expensive. Poor employee discount. No break area and you have to fight for your lunches and breaks. Most employees don't get them. To much favoritism with managers.

    Advice to Management

    Store management can't do anything - or if they can - they pretend they can't. Better organization of HR stuff, help employees move up within the company.

    Pros

    The managers were laid back as long as the work was being done. Very friendly management. Gave you the days off you needed when needed in most cases.

    Cons

    Lack of sales system. Had to pretty much change every single price tag in the store every week. A lot of tedious work. Killed the vibe when there was a huge stack of price tags

    Advice to Management

    Find a better way to apply sales. Maybe modernize price tags with cheap digital tags that can automatically be changed with push of button? It is 2017.
