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

    Pros

    Pay was good when you made profit sharing. Being forced to remodel and not being profitable was bad.

    Cons

    You'll never work for a more greedy man than John Menard. There a big list of deductions he takes against his managers. Too many carts in the lot.. you lose money....make a mistake filling out a form....he takes more money..... you wonder if you are going to lose you job everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Move to a different company that has a heart and some compassion for people. This one doesn't. No ethics from the Me hard family.
