Very face paced environment, people are friendly, not managed very well though
National Loss Prevention Manager (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 3 January 2018
Once management switched over it became all about the money and less about the work or environment. The marketing portion of the business is not something I'm familiar with, but the retail branch offers many opportunities to learn the business.
Part-time-varied (Current Employee) – Greater Toronto Area, ON – 14 January 2018
a good place to learn how to read a planogram, for cosmetics, some dm's are great, some aren't a lot of favoritism to some independent contractors, working with-in shoppers drug marts, and Walmarts Rexall and other type locations, L'oreal is their main company we do the 3rd party work for you don't have to deal with the consumer, you are there to do the reline, you meet a lot of people work has busy weeks then there's nothing, you have to either have another income you can't survive on this position solely, having a car is a must or able to access transit easily
Recruitment (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 17 November 2017
Fun place to work but, leaders are not invested in your personal growth. Experience is completely dependent on external factors, no 2 recruiters will have the same experience within the same role even though it should be the same.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Canada – 7 November 2017
Match has multiple businesses through the company. When looking to see if this is the right company for you, please keep that in mind. The Mobile side (WOW! Mobile Boutique) is a great place to work. Great work environment, fantastic communication with head office employees, good commission structure, benefits for FT employees, lots of focus on training and Promotions knowledge. We have offers that other companies do not receive on their devices as well. Our focus is the whole Customer Experience, offering a non biased service, which I love about the company. I see a lot of negative reviews on here, however they are not towards the company that Match is a parent company to; WOW! Mobile.
I've been with Match for years, they're pretty good
Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 October 2017
I love Match. The culture is great, the teams are generally great,and the work itself is a breeze. The only drawback for me is that full time work is unlikely with Match, which is a double-edged sword; I'd have difficulty sticking around because I need full time work, but working full time with Match (through advancement) requires that you stick around through the dry patches. All in all, Match is great.
Semi-casual workplace, flexible hours, not much garuntee for hours
Independent Contractor - merchandising (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 October 2017
This position is great for flexible hours and relaxed wardrobe. The work is pretty straight forward but gets repetitive pretty quickly. There are things that will go wrong when working on a wall but can usually be handled day of. Not too much hands on training, either you get it or you don't. Pay is decent but raises are hard to come by.
Flexible hours, casual attire, straight forward duties, working alone
No garuntee of hours, not too much infield direction. Working alone
Visual Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 21 February 2017
MatchMg is a lot of cleaning and maintenance- very repetitive. You are misinformed in the interview of your job description. If you're a visually driven individual match is not for you. The daily tasks you are given are not stimulating.
"Independent Contractor" (Former Employee) – Canada – 19 January 2017
Where do I start!!
They make you sign a forum saying you are an independent contractor when in actuality you are not. They make you pay out of pocket for materials. Pay is always late or nonexistent and they always make excuses. Saying they will carry over the money they didnt pay you over the next month. No. That's not how it's done. Hopefully the labor board can help me but with this sneaky independent contractor lie I might not have much luck. Worst decision of my life working here.
Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 January 2017
short contracts with good pay and great opportunity to meet people; unsure if advancement is possible within the organization but the manager for my roadshow was always available and ready to help. very flexible hours and lots of free samples!
N/A (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 January 2017
The company emailed me asking what time would be best for a phone interview. As soon as I said I was hard of hearing and that my significant other will talk for me, I never heard back from this company. If this is how they treat people, I wouldn't want to work with them. They sound so bad.
Trust me. Only work here if you have no other choice!!!!
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Canada – 30 November 2016
I have been working with Match for about sometime now. The management is terrible. They lie and don't want to take responsibility for their actions. They delay pay and will make an excuse last minute why you didn't get paid. They will take your job on any notice. DO NOT WORK HERE!!! Trust me. I have been doing sales for 15 years. This was the worst company ever!!!
Gift card, fun emplyees
No pay, cheating of hours, Very racist and sexist environment
Treated like and Independant Contractor when in fact your an employee
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 October 2016
Match is good if you have nowhere else to go and are desperate for a little money but do not make a career out of this place. Management treat you like your an idiot consistently speak down to you and can make your life miserable.
Drive all over the place with little compensation Call you an IC when your not. Employees are okay some like everywhere else will stab you in the back the moment your back is turned.
Product Demonstrator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 July 2016
I worked - briefly - for this company in 2016, demoing fabulous skincare products at Shoppers Drug Mart.
Pay was ALWAYS in-accurate. I have fought for weeks to get $125 in missing wages. Match's claim is that they transferred the money. It was never received in my bank account, and Match refuses to offer any documentation.
Do not work for them. My next stop is the Labour Board.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 25 January 2016
Match was by far one of the worst companies I have worked for. When asking management for help there was none given instead was advised to look at myself and figure out where the problem was. Brought over from a different company with promises and false pretenses nothing paned out and none of the things told happened.
sales rep (Former Employee) – Mississauga – 19 August 2015
I started when the company was new and it had its ups and downs I soon realized more downs than ups. Employees can be sharks, long work hours, horrible management, salary was usually delayed missing or in accurate. No loyalty you must lie and mislead customers to sign 2 year contracts.
Brand Ambassabor Blackweb (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 July 2015
The best place to work if you're an outgoing and social person. Project hours can be long, but the compensation for the work is very very rewarding. Excellent team leads and account managers that care about the people who work for them. Great job for those in school or only want part time work
