Yes. Even though Menards doesn’t ask about your criminal history on their application, they will run a background check. When filling out the application, Menards lets you know they’ll do one during the hiring process
Here is something to keep in mind regarding background checks:
Lucky for you there are some states that will only look at offenses less than seven years old. They are as follows:
- New Hampshire
- New York
These states see only guilty convictions:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Sadly, there are states that will look at everything. These include:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
Menards’ company rating was a 3.3 out of 5 stars on glassdoor.com. The negative ratings came from the long hours, crazy scheduling, and difficulty balancing work and home life. However, Menards was praised for offering quick promotions. It appears the pay isn’t too bad, either. That is always a great thing to hear!
What felonies Menards will not hire
There are likely a few charges that will stop your application, but Menards didn’t tell us specifically what they are. We’ve made our best guesses in the next section!
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
We didn’t find anything regarding a specific conviction Menards may not consider. Keep in mind, this doesn’t mean they will not hire someone with these convictions— it just means they may be a little tougher on individuals with these convictions. However, there are a few that we think may have a hard time getting their foot in the door.
- Violent offenses generally always have a harder time with any customer service type position. Menards deals with the public, so any position that interacts with the public may not be the way to get your foot in the door.
- Theft crimes may be looked at with strict guidelines. There would be some expensive materials/tools and cash that most positions would have access to.
Does Menards hire sex offenders?
There’s a chance Menards hires sex offenders, but we haven’t heard anything about it. The company and past employees are quiet on the matter.
Does Menards drug test?
Yes. Menards will make you consent to a drug screen in order to be considered for employment.
