As much as I HATED dealing, (yes I said "DEALING") with the pain of retarded, the most incompetent so called "Guests"; people who can't figure out their *** from their own hole they eat out of, I hated working for this company. Do not work retail, people look down on you like you are the *** of the Earth, like because you had to get a temp job at a retail store to pay the bills, you just so happen to miraculously know how to fix their *** "Home Improvement" problems. I was blown away by the ridiculous questions I was asked. IT IS A "SELF" HOME IMPROVEMENT STORE! Do not go in there thinking that they know everything! Figure the *** job out yourself!
On to the company... Maybe if you treated your employees with respect and dignity they would like working there? Maybe if your drive would be a little less on "add on sales" and a little more on thanking the employees for the hard work they put forth to give the higher ups a fat *** check, they would treat people better cuz they would be proud and not embarrassed and depressed to work at a low income job. It's sad when a fellow manager (as I was) tells you he is stuck because the company has sucked him so far in (money wise) that he cant just go get another job. Sure you make $50,000/year, at what price? The man works 50-60 Hrs. a week! I was working 45-50 Hours a week and making just less than $15.00/Hr. and working long hrs every other weekend. NOT WORTH THE TIME AWAY FROM MY FAMILY!!!!!
Sure you may think I'm just ranting and raving, and your probably right. I am sour towards Menards due to my experience. But this is also a note to all those of you out there that wanna get mad at an employee that works there. Not everyone can, or will be pleased, so what if your that 1 that isn't pleased? Your voice does not, and will not ever matter. It just really reflects upon the management on the store.
Remember... If an employee has a bad attitude... Attitude reflects leadership...
