    I worked at Monical's Pizza part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sometimes stressful, but ALWAYS fun environment. Awesome management, AMAZING discount (50% off!?!), and fun times. Good hours too!

    Cons

    Pay (especially serving.. you can get slow sometimes) and co-workers. It's more or less a high-school job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train more & have FUN

    I worked at Monical's Pizza full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good for management

    Cons

    You have to deal with the constant problem of staffing, people calling off, understaffing. Upper management (district managers and office personnel) have lost touch with the real world. Products that were on the menu 20 years ago, are put back on, because one person in the office wanted it, no matter how horrible the product is. Constant complaining from customers regarding the high price, and how they can get better food much cheaper elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers and employees, and get off your "throne" into the real world.

    I worked at Monical's Pizza part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Occasional free food. Slightly above minimum wage pay. Ability to move between stores. Always looking to promote from within.

    Cons

    Horrible management, poor morale, bad corporate culture, little to no discount, continual talk of charging employees for wasted food, no benefits. Out dated POS systems. No proper system in place to set availability or request time off. Easy to make assistant manager, hard to move beyond that even with open positions.

    Pros

    Great management, people who start here stay here for a long time, they work around your family time, corporate is very nice and friendly! Great training in every position. Very clean establishment!

    Cons

    Benefits and bonuses could be a bit better. I am a supervisor and my bonuses are pretty laughable, but to be honest it doesn't bother me much. I am just happy to be getting anything bonus wise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Monical's Pizza part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This review is for a franchise store, I can't speak for the corporate stores but:
    -Managers put workers first, negotiated with workers when customers had complaints
    -Very fun work environment, raises typically reflected skill. Very fair to employees
    -Pizza was delicious, glad to serve our community quality product

    Cons

    -Mostly part-time opportunities, limited hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, I never felt like I was just a tool in the system like I did at other restaurants.. That's very important!

    Pros

    Monicals is a great company to work for. They provide great training and they provide great balance between work and family life. The benefits are good and they treat their employees well.

    Cons

    Its a small company thats confined to a small area, so there aren't many opprotunities for relocation. It can also be hard to bring in higher volumes because the prices are a bit high. There is also very low turnover in management and higher positions, so it can be difficult to move up in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe Monicals would benefit by expanding into bigger markets and looking into expanding farther from their corporate office. People love our pizza and I believe the restaurants could be successful almost anywhere in the country. Also look into ways to become more competitive and bring in higher volume so prices could be lowered without affecting our profits too much.
