    I worked at Monarch full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, commission is achievable and paid on time. They also do incentives to sell more and win more money. They also have champions educational where you get to go on a free holiday.
    Nice office, friendly staff

    Cons

    Management are very busy and it can be isolating when everyone is on different lunches so its hard to speak to people. There is a pressure to hit sales targets and most of the successful people are taking short lunches and doing overtime.

    Advice to Management

    The management are very good, they offer training. They could offer more and better training as the initial 2 week training seems quite irrelevant

    I worked at Monarch (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Meeting and mingling with the people we support makes it all worth working for Monarch. After a while they become family.

    Cons

    Monarch does not pay a lot. The turnover is high because people leave to make more money. They are not a loyal company to employees with years of service.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be honest and fair to your staff. Treat everybody the same. It takes a special person with patience to work at Monarch. If you do not love your job at least 90% of the time, then find another job.

    Pros

    Great people, work life balance, good location, short summer Fridays during long weekends, managers are very friendly, sometimes go to cafes to celebrate birthdays

    Cons

    Uncertainty about our future after Mattamy Homes bought Monarch, there is no clear long term strategy, team building could be better
