Coolio
Multiple Positions (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB22 April 2019
This place was pretty coolio. Maybe a bit boring at time, but it payed the bills well. I enjoyed working with certain people, the work environment was nice. I guess a criticism would be that the management should talk to the employees more. The paint line was good, but when i went to the washing station i wasn't talked to again until i found a new job.

Avoid this company if you are an Engineer
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB5 April 2019
If you can avoid this company please do. There has been a lot of turnover and a high percentage of people are looking for new jobs. Management will take advantage of you HR will not help you since they work for management. The company has potential but needs new management but a change of ownership is reportedly happening soon. Plants need automation. Pay is low, and there is very minimal training, lots of people have left. There products are low tech, so if you want to learn and be challenged, this is not the place.
Pros
Had one decent manager
Cons
Future is limited without a lot of investment

Dreadfull
Labourer (Former Employee) –  Winkler, MB1 April 2019
Improper management, janitors still using buckets n mops from 25 - 30 yrs ago. Gross!! Snott on the bathroom walls and smells like decaying mice in the change room. A lot of immigrants that can barely string a sentence together; some barely a word of English! Safety concerns galore stay away!
Pros
I don’t work there anymore!
Cons
Too many

bad place to work
Shop Labourer (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB10 March 2019
this is a very bad place to work. this company takes advantage of people who cant speak English. The pay is very low, and you don't get pay increases. the only difference between a new employee, and some one who has been there for 15 years is 3.25 not much. HR is very bad, and will take advantage of you and tell you anything just so you can take the job.
Pros
there is none
Cons
managment treats you like garabage

Molder (Former Employee) –  Winkler, MB27 November 2018
Most the people are nice but everyone is not happy working there. Some have a bad attitude towards you and think they are above you and treat you like you are nothing.

Not what I expected
Sales (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB24 October 2018
- Old school passive aggressive culture with lots of turnover
- management only focused on the short term and selling the company, and not there to facilitate the success and development of their teams
- Pay well below average
- limited training
- HR will low ball you with an offer, so be sure to negotiate
Pros
A few nice people, if they stay
Cons
See above

Good place to work.
Human Resources Officer (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB21 August 2018
Monarch was a good place to work although it was a male dominated industry, however, HR was well respected by upper management. Because it was a smaller organization it was easier to know everyone and work together as a team to accomplish the organizational goals.
Pros
Great people, free parking, many company perks
Cons
Long hours in HR

Time to move on
Customer service (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB16 July 2018
The workload is high and the pay is low. Even though the company does pretty well, there is no profit sharing or extra incentives. The moral is low and lots of people have left.....the company is to be sold soon, so hopefully that will bring in some new people and ideas. Management is fairly arrogant and keep to themselves.
Pros
A few good coworkers
Cons
Almost everything

Challenging, exciting work environment
Administration (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB19 June 2018
Every day is always different, very busy and challenging. Working with employees and management is always exciting and full of opportunity. The culture overall is great, the company has a gym free for employee use, a cafeteria with a red seal chef, opportunity for advancement, educational supports, a great benefit program including a matching RRSP program. The facility is extremely clean. Production employees have a uniform program so work shirts are provided and washed for you! GREAT place to work!
Pros
People are amazing! Benefits and opportunity are great. Lots of events - Staff BBQ's, Family Day, Plaid for Dad, Annual Chili Cook off, Dress for the Cause, United Way, Plane Pull
Cons
none

Constantly being watched
Welder (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB3 June 2018
Terrible, boring, they don’t care if you are new they want the quota right now. Cameras every 15 feet, awful embarrassment of a company. They even set your welder for you. Zero ability to use your own skill.
Pros
Zero
Cons
After all the bad in the shop they make you pay for parking

Lots of turnover
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB25 March 2018
The culture was not great, but there are some good people still left after a lot of turnover. There is some room for advancement, but compensation is well below average. The company is run by a handful of people, and owned by an investment firm out of the US, so the future is not clear. Training was limited, but the plants were clean and well maintained, and I did enjoy some of the people I worked with.
Pros
No shortage of work to do
Cons
Management disconnected from the rest of the company

Not a good place to work there!!!
CNC Operator (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB24 February 2017
Management is aweful. What they say and what they do is a different thing related to the employees.
Monarch doesn't care about their worker. They push and push and get rid of you just like that.
Pros
Clean
Cons
Too many

Agréable entre employés, ardu mais possible
Commis à la réception (Former Employee) –  Laval, QC3 September 2016
J'ai bien aimé travailler chez Monarchie industries, malgré le travail très physique on s'habitue rapidement au rythme de production.
Pour y travailler en tant que commis à la réception, il est nécessaire de passer par certaines agences de placement reliées à l'entreprise, donc le salaire réel est amoindris.
On a réellement l'impression de servir à quelque chose.
Il arrive parfois qu'une équipe termine son chargement plus rapidement et donc qu'elle attends un autre semi-remorque. Entre-temps le personnel officiel peut donner d'autres tâches simples ou séparer l'équipe pour en inclure les membres à d'autres chargements.
Pros
Belle ambiance
Cons
Ardeur du travail
