I worked a very short time in management/administrative position. I could not treat staff with the disrespect that was expected from me.
Menards has rules that are set in stone and no emergency or illness is acceptable so penalized if cannot work. A doctor's letter will only lessen the number of disciplinary points given you...and I witnessed management not accepting the written doctor's notes professing it was a fake. Turnover is unbelievable. Management seems to thrive on control at the expense of employees' physical and mental well being.....sorta like being in an abusive relationship.
Training is very minimal but corporate mandates this written text book training and written tests to maintain your job...something they fail to tell you during the interview. They like to hire part time employees and make them work 40 plus hours but as a part time employee no benefits need to be paid out and part time employees make less hourly wage than full time.
You will work their schedule so do not plan anything in your personal life. Corporate has not identified the cause of the excessively high turn over rate of it's employees....guess they don't care as long as the bottom line of sales to payroll is in the black.
