Engineer (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 25 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.
No shortage of work to do
Management disconnected from the rest of the company
Commis à la réception (Former Employee) – Laval, QC – 3 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.
Conducted regular preventative maintenance and unplanned maintenance when called upon. Performed detailed major preventative maintenance and reported all defects and the corresponding corrective actions to be taken to supervisor. Used PLC computer system to access work orders and ordered parts from stores room and when job completed,signed off on the work order.
Welder/Fabricator (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 28 August 2015
the only thing i can say about this place is, the management is only there for the company they do not support the workers, in all aspects. there work times are bad, they say you will be switching shifts from time to time for a week and then keep you on a different shift for as long as they feel they can. horrible place to work, lead hands run off to back rooms or offices to hide when they should be around to help
i would come it at 6 am i would get my coffee. i would go to my machines that i had to look after them i would have to make sure that they are running smooth and that they are clean that there is no piles of dust of them so they can run smooth if they wouldn't work i would have to fix them and program them and make sure that they are running so all day i would have to make sure that the machines are making good product and that they are running smooth and that they will stay clean

CNC set up operator (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 21 August 2014
I run and set up a CNC machine in a production environment. With Monarch i have learned how to effeciently use measuring equipment and how to interact with all walks of life and backgrounds. Management does their job to the best of their abilities. My co-workers will be the hardest thing to leave because they all break the days that drag. Keeping interested is the hardest part of my day. Interacting with my fellow employees is the best part of my day.
