I've been working for Menards for five months now. I just recently got a promotion to a Head Cashier and it's very fast paced. If I'm not helping my cashiers I'll be putting away carts, taking out garbages, putting returns in the correct carts, and doing clerical work as needed.
If you're interested in working for Menards take this advice: Talk with your supervisor/schedule maker and let them know what you're available for! They will schedule you for 12 hour days 6 days a week if you don't tell them otherwise! Most of the managers are very good with accommodating to schedules and always respect my time off requests.
Everyone at Menards works as a team, and so at the end of the day we leave as a team. If one department needs help, you're sure all departments and cashiers will be over there giving them a hand. For the most part all of my coworkers are respectful, with an exception of the young (under 18) courtesy patrol boys.
The hardest part of the job is giving breaks on time. I'm human, and it's hard to keep track of every 30 minutes someone going on break.
If you apply for menards as a cashier, expect to stay a while after closing the store. Cashiers are responsible for putting away returns and taking out the garbage at the end of the night, also helping departments as needed.
