    I have been working at Monical's Pizza full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits for management and any general employee who works more than 1000 hours a year. Paid vacation for management and employees who have been with the company more than 5 years. Helpful upper management, regional trainer is only ever a call or text away. The company feels like one big family. We start employees just a tad over minimum wage but raises are given twice a year. There is always room for growth if you work at a corporate store. If you work hard and care, you will reap the benefits. 45 hour work week for management which is slim for the industry. One weekend off a month and super flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    As a manager, Fridays are required and if it is needed off, a vacation day must be used. I understand the usefulness of it, but working in a larger store, we have a management team of 5 including the 2 shift supervisors, so we can have our bases covered if needed. Also, the turnover rate for GMs is pretty low, so you may have to wait awhile for your shot at your own store.

    Advice to Management

    For upper management, just remember that nobody means to make mistakes and nobody wants anything falling through the cracks. Sometimes just running the store day to day is tough.

    Flexible hours. Easy work. Requires no real special talents or skills. No experience or education is required to work here. Not difficult.

    Cons

    Very little pay. Mostly staffed by high school employees, resulting in workplace drama that is not necessary. Hard to get 40 hours a week.

    I have been working at Monical's Pizza part-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good tips if you are a server or driver, you can basically create your own schedule if you do a good job. Discounted health insurance for workers who complete at least 1000 hours per year. Easy to make management if you're willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Starts just above minimum wage. Raises are very small, and are based on employee performance as well as store performance. Expect to make about $10.50/hour after 6 years.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be a good example for your workers. If they see you constantly avoiding work and dillydallying on your phone, your employees will do the same. Be the boss. Take control. Make an effort.


  8. "Good Job for High Schoolers"

    Pros

    Family friendly atmosphere with clean cooking practices, and fair treatment of employees.

    Cons

    An ideal job for a 10th grader but don't expect to grow with this company. This chain isn't the place for it.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest management creates more opportunities for growth as the pizza chain is a true gem, otherwise they will continue to suffer from high turnover.

    Pros

    Laid back environment for food service.
    Good employee discount.
    Advancement potential if its something you want to pursue.

    Cons

    Minimum pay.
    Odd hours/weekends
    Sometimes sent home after a very short shift if slow.

    Advice to Management

    Management was sometimes overbearing. They seemed to jumble employee's together and forget exactly who had done what. This kind of thing happens though when you have a lot of employees that work short shifts.
