Not resolved

Just exposing the truth about Menards.Menards requires employees in management postions to sign yearly contracts.

The contracts are basically signed under durress as they include unethical procedures. For instance, they require a General Manager and Assitant Geneal Manager to work a minimum of 55 hours per week. It also releases Menards from any liability if the employee is any form of accident from lack of sleep because they worked until 11pm and had to open the store at 5am. There is also a clause that states that if the employee leaves Menards, they can't work for a competior otherwise they are subject to a fine of $10,000.00 to Menards.

I could go on about the contract but imagine that a copy of the contract will make its way onto the internet soon. For anyone that want to say that Menards promises big bonuses to offset their hourly GM and AGM hourly cap of $14.68 per hour...don't count on it. Menards has tendancy to change their method of computing bounuses at any moment and when the time comes to hand out bonuses, they will be smaller than they were promised. Even if your store is profitable and exceeding finacial requirement originally set in place.

Also, the weekly bonuses payroll bonuses are a joke. Insted of making the weekly $40 -$100 weekly payroll bonus, Menards will probably deduct $40-$100 from your paycheck.

(Not leagal according to our lawyer) If you don't believe me, just ask a GM at Home Depot or Lowes as they probably left Menards for a better salary and better health benefits.

Had an Experience with Menards?

You're a *** and have no idea what you are talking about. Next time you're butthurt about something do the world a favor and don't post about it.


Menards seems to have a problem with it's

cleaning contractors also.

They have passed bad checks all around the Minneapolis, MN area


You're right. $39.50 until October, then bump bump.


Day by day I struggle to maintain not only my strength but also my sanity.It's all a blur.

I have no energy to write.I don't know what's right or wrong anymore.


Obviously these people don't know how to read and understand a business contract.The contract basically tells you how the stores are suppose to be run and what will happen if they is not followed.

If you don't like the way this company is ran DON'T WORK FOR THEM!!Please take a class and educate yourself before speaking.


I too work for this company and had to sign a contract but after I was already in position moved from another department. When I said that I would like time too think about it I was told that keep in mind I could not go back to my old position. I felt that had I not signed I would lose my job.



Adam, you don't make more then 35/hour! If you did why would you be on this page? Lies lies and more lies!


I got fired because my GM coundn't handle the pressure of a derogatory e-mail.Lost my year-end bonus and profit sharing, At least i got unemployment, because he had no cause to fire me,


I have never had to sign a contract, but it has been understood that a GM's work week is at least 55 hours and more likely to be a min.of 60.

That's the way it is in management. That includes retail, hotel, and restaurant positions. If you don't want to do the work don't take the job! I do have to agree the $14 something an hour is very cheap.

I made more than that 20 years ago.Here, again, don't take the position if you have a problem with those 2 areas...

Wow I am so impressed by menards managers whom have a degree that they have to come onto the internet and show how smart they are by cussing. I would think they may be the ones whom need to grow up.
