    I worked at Match Marketing Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was employed at the orchard park location and it's been fantastic. Training was recently remodeled and was easy to follow, I was paid for my time at home to go over the training and it only took 5 days until I was earning commission. The structure has been recently revamped and is an improvement for full timers with incentives to keep pushing yourself. 6 brands to represent means constantly learning the new promos but they give a great selection of options and you can genuinely feel that you're helping the customers without having to push them onto any specific carrier. Competitive hourly wage and good commission structure, and a few times a week a customer even gives a tip. Location is extremely well managed and there's a true teamwork dynamic. Every week reps get targets based on the store location, previous years sales and the amount of hours they work and these goals are always attainable and rewarded neither gift cards (MasterCard) and knick knacks from corporate. If you do not attain these targets there is no punishment or pressure. You can look over the previous week and look at what you wish to focus on the next week and discuss how you'll do so with a manager. This guarantees results and there is no shame.

    Cons

    The new commission structure can be improved for part timers as the 25 phones/month goal can seem unattainable when you only work so few hours.

    Advice to Management

    Current manager is being underutilized and has more potential than she's currently able to show off

    I worked at Match Marketing Group part-time

    Pros

    You get paid sometimes for the work you do.

    Cons

    Cons are everything else.

    Shifts constantly change, sometimes they change hours before you're scheduled. The max. hours you get is 8 hours a week. You have 3 different managers to answer to every time there's a change, all of which are incompetent. They don't care about you and only care about numbers. This is an honest review and this review is to warn honest people to not work for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Just close the company down at this point.

    I have been working at Match Marketing Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work in a mall , access to food court and other shopping wants or needs.

    Cons

    Be prepared to get recycled if you don't wanna spread your bum wide open and take on a whole lotta B.S as you do so. You make less then $14 minimum wage (I have no clue how they get away with that...) $13 per hour and you get a tiny little commission lol . No different from working at McDonald's. Actually McDonald's might have more incentives to be employed by them. Even if you sacrifice everything for this company and work up the corporate ladder. The District Manager makes $70, 000 per year salary! Lol that in my opinion is aweful considering how much d he/she has to suck to be there . Oh and your a multi carrier....So you have constant competition within your own company . Just brace for a lotta disappointment. Or enjoy your experience some people enjoy being suckers. I would assume that 3% of the whole company . As in the regional manager s take home 97% of the income as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    5000 turnover rate in a baby company that s under 5 years old . Create a mock sale system soo new hires can have a clue as to how to activate a service. Stop watching the cameras and be proactive. It's actually creepy ...If they want a photo shoot calender of me just ask lol.

    Pros

    Great perks on special occasions and a laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Executives have no interest in getting to know you. Company makes promises they can't keep. No real room for growth and high positions are given based on likability not on work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees!!! - Many are overseen due to bad directors taking credit for their work and managers that cannot manage. Great talent and work ethic is overlooked too easily based solely on one persons opinion.
