Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 August 2017
They spread out the work to a bunch of people, so you're only getting 5 hours when you used to get 20-40 hours a week. Will hire and hire and hire and hire because the people they initially hired aren't getting enough work and quit. Company doesn't prioritize or even recognize good work ethic from a good employee. Management is distanced and often rude. They miss payments very often even though your work is inputted through the computer, which should stop that from happening, and it becomes a long process to get paid which inevitably falls onto your shoulders to fight for your money.
Would recommend if you want very scarce work and minimal hourly.
Can create your own work schedule. Work changes so you don't often get bored.
Product Relines (Former Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 28 March 2017
relines are simple and easy to complete. With a team, the work can be finished very quickly and is easy to pick up. Overall a good environment, only issue being that workers from the stores where you do the relines are often not helpful at all when you need it
Travail ou tu dois avoir de l'autonomie et de l'organisation
Marchandisseuse (Former Employee) – Drummondville et les environs – 9 November 2016
Aller rencontrer les gérants des différents magasins où je dois aller faire des changements dans les produits. Et faire les changements que la compagnie demande exemple: enlever un produit qui ne se vend pas bien, rajouter un nouveau produit. Prendre des photos et envoyer un compte rendu à la compagnie.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Bancroft, ON – 26 February 2016
Nice part time job to work as self employment. No benefits. There are short work hours. Sometimes it is very hard work. There can be a lot of paperwork to do which is not paid by MCA. A lot of hard working people here.
MCA expects you to be completely trained within the training time given. I had 1 day - although I had several years of experience working with other merchandising firms. I took a lot of notes.
I think they should provide extra money (even a base monthly amount) for all the time spent online retrieving information for jobs, putting in reports which are sometimes lengthy, uploading pictures and all the other time reading emails from supervisors, etc. Way too much time spent online which could otherwise be spent do more assigned jobs.
Best part of the job is working on your own if you like it.
better than average wage
short hours, no benefits, uses a lot of your personal time not paid
MERCHANDISING REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Leduc, AB – 15 February 2016
I enjoy doing merchandising and price audits for MCA. The hours are flexible and the variety of jobs keeps the work interesting. There is nothing better than completing a job and having a satisfied customer! That is my favourite part of this job. The hardest part for me is working on my feet for long periods of time on concrete floors. MCA is a great company to work for.
Fun to meet new people and teach others about our products
Merchandise sales Rep (Current Employee) – Powell River, BC – 8 February 2016
Busy day's and flexible hours. Great company to be working with. I have learned lots of different types of skills and gained knowledge in retail, sales and being part of a major supply and demand business gives you the opportunity to work with products you use on a daily basis and teaches you the fundamentals of merchandising.
Merchandising Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 March 2013
Only temporary work available but when there is work it's great. If you like to work unsupervised on your own this is the place for you. Pay is good and they cover travel expenses. The only down side is the temporary work.
create your own schedule, flexible, decent pay for the work
