Menards looking for 50 workers to cover shortage of help in Minot, ND

EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - We keep hearing how bad unemployment is.

But in Eau Claire, Menards’ is looking for 50 good employees to help cover a severe shortage of workers at its store in Minot North Dakota. And those people are needed so badly, the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram says Menards plans to fly them to Minot on a private jet to and from their jobs on a weekly basis – and give them lodging and food while they’re there.

A booming oil patch in the Minot area has created thousands of jobs, many of which were taken from the local retail industry. As a result, stores there are scrambling to find workers who are nowhere to be found locally.

Menards is a home improvement company based in Eau Claire. It had a job fair last week for people in that area who are willing to spend 4 or 5 days a week in Minot, and work 50 to 60 hours at $13 an hour plus the chance for overtime, weekend pay, and specific positions.
