    Pros

    Flexible depending on the Manager, great for students, mostly weekends, unsupervised, compensation was fair, and at times commission structures were generous and motivating

    Cons

    Compensation was often late and/or inaccurate, no guidance on how to attain ambitious sales targets in more remote locations, disorganized head office, surprise visits from managers, inconsistent scheduling, last minute changes to shifts and working locations, reporting portal was ancient and hard to use, no job security

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication between staff and contractors, increase compensation and/or regulate compensation structures, organize career paths within the role to promote movement to more senior positions.

    I worked at Match Marketing Group full-time

    Pros

    - Easy job, repetitive work loads
    - Some colleagues are very nice

    Cons

    Upper management is lacking on most of everything. Extremely unorganized and never promises on their decisions. Changes direction very frequently, has reason for everything.

    Advice to Management

    Get your sxxx together, be honest with people, pay them on time, stop blaming.

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

    Pros

    They have well coordinated activation plans, therefore brand ambassadors only have one job. Account supervisors are cooperative and make schedule flexible for BAs. The company prioritizes the needs of BAs as well; I got injured during the job and they sent me home to recover.

    Cons

    Have to work despite bad weather, like any other team jobs its unusual that some coworkers do not cooperate, company did not offer compensation for injury during work

    Advice to Management

    The management is doing a good job so far, however the recruitment process should be a little bit more strict to ensure that all BAs will cooperate and respect their Team Lead
