Front End Team Member/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Elgin, ILNovember 16, 2018
Team members were enjoyable, and contractors and regular guests makes working there fun. but you are blamed for a lot of issues by disgruntled guests and have stressful encounters sometimes. hours were flexible and reasonable.

Front end drama
Head Cashier (Former Employee) –  Superior, WINovember 15, 2018
This is a good place to work if you are in high school, because with the drama in the front end it's like your still at school. If you work the front end be prepared to be treated like garbage by everyone. If you have kids and a life outside of work don't even bother. However they do work great with your schedule but they dont pay very well. Dont make a complaint because it will be blown off or not even heard.
Pros
Fast paced
Cons
Breaks, drama front end

Great place to work, great team members
2nd Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Forest Lake, MNNovember 15, 2018
The team members who work for Menards are great. This is a really good place to work if you don't want to work at a boring desk job and want to be able to make a lot of money and promote quickly by working hard. Menards believes in rewarding hard working team members who like to help guests who come into the stores looking for items to complete their projects.
Pros
never boring or dull, lots of fun
Cons
some guests can really be rude

Enjoyable workplace that offers flexible hours for part time
Menards Floorcoverings team member (Current Employee) –  Bradley, ILNovember 15, 2018
Overall menards is enjoyable. The team members are helpful, welcoming, and make the time pass without feeling like youre at work. Some day are worse than others, just like any other store. And some days are a breeze, due to the organization and support given by management. There are flaws, like not having enough payroll for the necessary workers, but that typically is only a seasonal problem. Where there is a lack of hours during the year, it will be made up with overtime in the next season. Pay is starting at 10.25 part time with frequency .10 raises accompanied by $3 extra on Saturday and Sunday. Part time workers will have flexible scheduling depending on department and manager.
Pros
Enjoyable enviornment due to coworkers
Cons
The days depend on the opener, if they fail to prepare than it feels like youre behind the whole day.

Head Cashier (Current Employee) –  Ballwin, MONovember 15, 2018
Menards is a fine retail company. They are willing to work with your schedule and allow you any time you may need. Menards' team members are always willing to help each other out. The overall atmosphere of the store is to help out their guests, customers, as long as the guest's requests are reasonable.

It was decent
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Johnson Creek, WINovember 13, 2018

Pros
Decent work
Cons
Low hours per week

They keep you busy as much as possible
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Lima, OHNovember 13, 2018
It’s enjoyable when you work with your favorite people. It can be fun when it gets closer to the holidays, however it can be very stressful. You also have the option of switching departments when you know more about the store. You can also apply for in home training to learn more about the store.
Pros
30 minute lunch breaks and you get to be away from the registar when you do returns
Cons
You freeze during the winter

High school
Load Puller (Current Employee) –  Oregon, OHNovember 13, 2018
The atmosphere was much like high school, lots of gossip and standing around. Quite a few people violate company policy, including general managers. Frequently policy was ignored to service the guest

Great place
Sales (Former Employee) –  North Platte, NENovember 13, 2018
I loved working at Menards, and was very upset when let go. Some managers could use the management class again due to being poor managers.
I got to learn things I never new about management. Learned how to work all different age groups and how to work as a team.
The hardest part of the job for me was the big weighted products. Being small didn’t help.

Will consider you a great empoyee if you can operate a shovel
Maintenance Manager (Former Employee) –  McKenzie, NDNovember 12, 2018
Normally would get in before scheduled shift to start repairs on machinery broken by poor operation from previous shifts (runs 3 shifts). Lots of managers, most have little experience or no related background to their management area. Will allow you to miss any number of days with a doctor's note. Most parts of the facility are fairly fast paced. Must clock out for all breaks, bathroom included. Did enjoy the vast number of machinery processes and learning new equipment types and how to repair them.
Pros
Lots of hours
Cons
Punching out for everything, including safety meetings

Menards
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Des Moines, IANovember 12, 2018
Terrible management team they go thur them like water and don’t care about you or you family. To bad if you have something planned after work if they want you to stay you have to stay or you could be written up and if that happens 3 time your done. If you are like most Americans you can’t afford to loose your job.
Pros
Discounts
Cons
Bad management

Its Okay if your in High School. Good pay good hours. Carryout can be stressful at times.
Carryout (Current Employee) –  Mitchell, SDNovember 9, 2018
Overall it's a decent job. If your looking for good hours and good pay in high school you should work here. It is harder work. Your on your feet a lot, and is physically demanding. You have to be a hard worker or your not going to do well. You need to go in with a good attitude everyday or you'll be plain out crabby. You need to be able to deal with people. So yeah i would say its probably a 3.5 star job.
Pros
Breaks, Hours, Pay
Cons
Hard at time, you have to be by yourself a lot.

Absolutely Loved Working Here
Wall Coverings (Former Employee) –  Lancaster, OHNovember 9, 2018
My manager was wonderful and my Team Members were like family. They had options to earn more pay if one is willing to take classes. These classes are optional and usually pretty easy. Incredibly flexible scheduling. I would still be working here had I not moved. I loved it!
