Project Coordinator for Alberta and BC (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 18 September 2018
the job at Match was great a first and was a lot of fun then as management changed so did the expectations and moral. the job was still fun but a different direction and reduction of hours and no Job security forced staff away.
Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Ontario – 13 September 2018
I am very disappointed with my time at Match.
I read all these reviews but I thought it couldn't be that bad, especially considering it's my position (Brand Ambassador). I thought, "It's only one day, how could it go wrong?"
The job itself was fine, and I had a lot of fun and was very successful, talking to many people and making connections. Even leading up to the event, I didn't have too much trouble communicating with the Match team and heard back in pretty quickly when I would email my questions. I was a bit concerned when I signed an "independent contractor agreement" but I disregarded it.
The problems came up after, for the most part. Leading up to the event, I got daily emails pretty much. But after that, radio silence. I emailed them photos of the event as they asked, but I didn't hear back which I thought was weird, but understandable. After nearly two weeks of nothing, I got sick of waiting and sent an email to ask about my pay and the next event. I was told I would be working for at LEAST two events, and the next scheduled one was right around the corner so I wanted to know what the heck was going on. I thought I would have at least some job security, even if it was one day a month. I was a big fool.
I heard back a few days later saying that there would be a two week turnover before I got paid, which ticked me off but all my jobs have had biweekly pay so I got over it. I waited another week before sending another email, since it had been 3 weeks since the event. I asked for the status of my pay, and didn't bother asking about future events because I'dmore... rather not deal with them ever again.
No reply, but a mysterious deposit has been made in my account. The pay is.... ridiculously incorrect. They paid me far under what they told me my wage would be. I should've taken all those warnings much more seriously. I can't be bothered to argue with these people. It just seems like a big corporate scheme to me. Why else would they sign you on as independent contractors if not to avoid paying taxes? By all means I was an employee. Whatever.
Try not to work here if you can, best of luck to you if you do. I hope there are people who do well here.less
If you are passionate about the brand you're working for, it's great!
Marchandiseur (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 16 June 2018
Par ou commencer! La compagnie la plus desorganisé que j'ai vue. Aucune formation , communication entre employé et dirigeant presque inexistant. Horaire désorganisé. Il change votre horaire le matin même sans avertissement et pas de garantie d'heures. Beaucoup de route a faire et le kilometrage le plus ridicule que j'ai vu. Travaille assez endormant et toujours la même chose . difficile d'être motiver pour aller travailler. Assez exigeant et dirigeant toujours mecontent. Emploi a prendre si vous être VRAIMENT mal pris.
Assurance trop dispendieuse, dirigeant trop exigeant, travail monotone
Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 June 2018
A lot of favortism, rude management, no direction and people are very selfish. They're never straight with you and put you in positions where you can feel unsafe at work. They simply don't care about you.
BRAND AMBASSADOR (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 May 2018
worked at match marketing as a brand ambassador, the pay is good and so is the organization of the promotions. Only downside is that there is not much promos happening during certain times of the year.
Brand Ambassador (Team Lead) (Former Employee) – North Bay, ON – 4 May 2018
This was a great opportunity to connect with the local community and those curling fans that came in from out of town/out of country. The team I was working with were all fantastic, management included.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 April 2018
Having very little traffic in an isolated area allows for much reflection on one's current standing in their lives. To relish the fact that they are getting paid despite having stayed at the exact same spot for the past 20 minutes.
Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 April 2018
Always late with pay. Pay is poor compared to other brand ambassador jobs to begin with. Turnover rate high, management info operative, do not care for their employees, and forever changing too. Never knew what the commission was supposed to be, as they changed it 3x in the 6 months I worked there. They make you pay for your own milk to be "reimbursed" for it later. Which was often forgotten on the paycheck. Nothing short of a ridiculous company. I will never work for match again after working this gig.
I never had a problem at MATCH that I couldn't make right that I didn't make myself.
Merchandiser (Hardware) (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 1 March 2018
I've had dozens of jobs, worked in hundreds of places. I never had a problem at MATCH that I couldn't make right that I didn't make myself.
Yes, I worked as a Team Lead for Match Marketing. I spent a lot of time completing surveys, capturing metrics, reporting, solutions, sometimes changes and often enough challenges. I spent a lot of time asking questions. Questions like: Are we still doing this procedure? What is the priority of these two different urgent last minute items? The interpersonal aspect of the work was rewarding. I enjoyed identifying skills of team members and allowing them to work in the areas where they will be most effective.
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
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.
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.
