Account Manager (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 26 July 2018
Working for MCA has been a really good experience. I have grown a lot in my field and value the experiences I have gained over time. The best thing about working here is the people! Everyone is very uplifting and positive. Great place to learn and grow!
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 26 July 2018
I have been working here for 4 years. Since then I have learned so much. I started off as a part time account coordinator and moved up to a National Account Manager. At MCA I have evolved and grown so much. Management is very understanding and always pushing for our success.

Small company that has grown tremendously ! Great management, and work life balance. Fast paced and always busy which I love. Only con I can think of is it the location is a bit far from home. They do offer their employees to work from home when needed and that helps the distance issue.
Représentante (Former Employee) – East Hawkesbury, ON – 5 July 2018
I liked that job because it was on my time, I choose my schedule and priorities. The only thing I didn't like about that job is that you don't make a lot of human contact... your always on the phone or emailing to your supervisor and never meeting them.
Regional Manager - Ontario (Former Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 13 June 2018
Lots of travel, working in stores with reps. Hiring and letting people go. Responsible for all training. The higher management were very personable and always there to confirm and approve last minute changes and decisions. The hardest part of the job was recruiting people in the most northern and isolated areas of the north. The most enjoyable part of the job was the job and everything that I was responsible for.
I was able to use my creativity to come up with the end results quicker and better
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 February 2018
Very difficult to get any training. I was not even started yet but people were contacting me because someone had told them I was a team leader. Getting paid was just as big of a hassle. Just to find out when pay day was turned into lots of frustration. I was only guaranteed a month of full time work. After that the hours were not known. I don't do well in these situations. The pay was horrible!
Merchandiser/Auditor (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – 26 February 2018
This is a contract-type position where you work for a few hours per week depending on how many hours the representative is able to work. It is great if a person needs flexibility in their work schedule.
not enough work; disorganized in disseminating information to representatives
Marchandiseur (Former Employee) – Gaspé, QC – 22 January 2018
J’ai bien apprécier de travailler pour cette compagnie,et le travail était agréable Le fait de travailler selon mon horaire était un gros avantage pour moi Toujours quelqu’un à l’écoute en cas de besoin
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.
