Hours are available if you want to work. If you only want 40hrs, you'll get 40. However, if your willing to work 45hrs, you got it. Nice place to work.

I thought it was easy to get on there when the young lady interviewed me after I filled out the application. Told me to take a drug test and if my results were good I would be called in for orientation. Never got called back.

They need 15 minutes breaks and an hour lunch break, plus they need to treat their employees better. They also need to end any wrongful coaching that happens. They need to stop threatening their workers cause believe me I'd quit my job if I was threatened by a manager to be wrongfully coached for something I'm not doing wrong. They tell the cashiers that they don't have to tuck in their shirts but three weeks later they tell their cashiers to tuck in their shirts. They don't train their cashiers very well and most of the cashiers are less than a year of working at Menards. They write up their employees right on the sales floor in front of customers and they point this out to new hires right away. They keep you 15 minutes past your quitting time, but if you work until 10PM they can have you working until 10:30PM, 11PM , or mid night and you put in a 10 hour day just cause of returns and freight that needs to be stocked before morning. No family time working for menards, no chance of getting on sales floor, no chance at a promotion. Their online training courses are impossible to pass unless you work with that stuff before even getting hired at menards. If menards hires you as part time they will give you five days a week to work and give you 40 hours a week, but if they hire you as full time they will give you 50+ hours a week. Management is jerks to their employees and you'll have very sour feet that you can barely even walk and sleep at night. When you ask all customers will this be on a big card they will yell at you no it'll be on a different credit or debit card I don't use a menards card don't ever ask me. Also customers will say when you have to ask do you want to pay for an additional one year warranty and the customers will yell at you no I don't and don't even ask me if I want a warranty. Customers also say they don't want to be called gusts when they shop at menards and they want more registers opened. Menards teaches the cashiers to put the cash register right away to credit mood without asking the customers what will you be paying with. This causes a big problem cause sometimes the customers forget that it's a tax exempt and they already have their card in and the cashier who wasn't trained in this doesn't know how to decline the card so they can go back, or while the customers have their card in and they want to use their rebate slip and again cashiers don't know how to decline so the customers can use the rebate slip. Now a month later the front end manager says you double charged a customer and the cashier is like huh I didn't double charge a customer last month and the manager goes and says don't act like it didn't happen you know what you did when you don't know and then they give you coaching for no good reason and you feel like crying but you hold it in so you don't bother the customers. When they interview you for part time they tell you all you'd get a week is 28 hours and they pay every two weeks, but when you're working there it's 40 hours a week and you get paid every week.
