What people like. Areas for improvement. Yes No. Indeed Featured review The most useful review selected by Indeed. I was a carryout here for 2 months. I did not last long for a couple reasons. First off, when I applied, the job was titled "Under 18 Opportunities. I go to my interview and the manager made it sound like it was a job where you load stuff into customer's cars. That sounded sort of fun, so I took the job. The manager in my interview never mentioned anything about pushing carts.
I would not have taken the job if I knew that it was pushing carts. So it's safe to say that I was never too happy here from the start. Did not enjoy working in the 10 below, snowy, windy, winter weather. Did not enjoy getting blamed for there not being enough carts on a busy weekend when I was trying my hardest. Also was not a fan of 18 hour mandatory weekends. I was part time working 10ish hours a week, but I still had to give up every other weekend, so that was frustrating.
For these reasons and my schedule getting busier, I just quit. The job payed though, so it was that's what made it ok. Management was ok. My coworkers were all great, fun people.

Overall, it was ok. Not terrible, but not amazing. Overall, the company and people weren't terrible at all, the carryout position is just bad. Pros Job pays decent, good coworkers. Cons Bad scheduling, 18 hour weekends, zero transparency in interview, have to work in bad weather. Was this review helpful? Report Share. Cares more about money then the people making them money.
A typical day is coming in and getting told you have to make the store more money, getting degraded by local contractors that you then have to put up with day after day, and then end your day feeling less than and not even getting a thank you from your management team. The upper management at the stores in town are trickle-down managers.
There are some very great people that work at these stores and you will feel camaraderie with these people because they will know the struggle you are going through. Finally, this company used to give bonuses but have taken all but one away and pay is barely above minimum wage. You can make more starting at any restaurant then spending any time working for Menards. You don't get merit raises or even yearly percentage raises, you get ten cents every six months. Pros Ok to watch tv on your phone, just don't get a complaint about it.
Cons The culture, the work environment, and the "leaders" are all cons in this company. Experience is highly dependent on your managers and co-workers. At Menards, there is little to no upward mobility past the assistant department manager. There is plenty of sideways mobility, like changing departments, so it is possible to get a 'new' environment.
My biggest gripe with Menards is how they handle their merchandise. As is with any cut-throat sales platform, products will go on sale. Menards handles theirs with different colored price tags. I have repeatedly put out sales tags with the same price, but a different color for months on end. You are also frequently asked to put out sales in other departments that you don't know anything about their inventory. Our particular store is VERY short handed, so scheduling is highly inflexible. We are also kept after closing to sort incoming freight, despite not being in the receiving department.
I have been in the store upwards of an hour-and-a-half after closing due to poorly handled freight and destructive guests. Approximately half of my scheduled shifts go 30 minutes to an hour after closing. In conclusion, this job seems like it would be okay for a full-time, day shift kind of person. The current 'covid pay' is a joke. Yes There are 1 helpful reviews 1 No. Read the review. I worked at Menards for nearly two years. During the first year I was a cashier, and it was alright.
However the management sucks. They are terrible at scheduling and frankly don't care if it doesn't work for you. It was going good for the first 8 months, then my boss started to get selfish.
Cons point system. Management is far from great. They let lots of problems snowball till they are out of hand and cannot be fixed without completely starting over.
Lots of drama and name calling among department managers, front end management, and inventory control auditors. It can feel like your hard work goes unnoticed.
Job seekers rely on your experience. The only good part about my job was my coworkers.
I worked full time hours without the benefits or even a thank you. Management was nice but made you feel stupid. Yes There are 1 helpful reviews 1 No There are 1 unhelpful reviews 1. People are great but the pay is not comparable to other retail companies still using the old pen and clipboard. They need to step up their game because other retail companies are pulling their team members away.
