Stay as far away as possible, from this joke outfit, unless you like to be taken advantage of, poor pay, very poor management, the supervisor in the east coast is a complete loser, no management skills at all, thinks she is all that, far from it, they are retail morons, could never get a real job. The so called Sales Manager is a twerp, has the small man's Napolean complex. Their biggest customer told me they have a nasty nick name for him, however never told me. No training, they lie, you need to constantly check your pay, they will short change you...a year ago they paid 46 cents a km, then went to 36, now their 33...and your first and last call must be 50 or more km's.
Points positifs
Sorry not a one
Points négatifs

Not for the serious job hunter, this company will nickle and dime you. No paid mileage, lack of sufficient hours makes if very difficult to plan/budget your earnings as they vary greatly from one month to the next. If you have a mortgage, then this is not the job for you. Great for retirees who just want to get out of the house for a few hours. Earning from the job, will not affect your pension because the hours are so inconsistent.
Points positifs
none
Points négatifs
no travel time or mileage paid ever

At first this company was somewhat decent to work for but since Head Office management changes a couple years ago it has been all down hill. Poor reimbursement for use of car, no raises or benefits and lately many "last minute" tasks that have to be done within 3 days, making it difficult for those who schedule their time for the week then are left shuffling things around.

Good people to work with, however I found that MCA takes on to much as a company, adding new clients for sales and merchandising to visit however do not give aqueduct training on the tasks needed to be preformed for each individual business client, nor is there very good product knowledge training. They allow you to create you route/schedule however adding additional clients from different brands makes it difficult to give proper service and not get confused as to which brand you're representing at which store. I represented 2 different brands in the same commercial store which also made it difficult for those store managers to know which brand your working on that given store visit.

As an MCA rep, you have the freedom to choose when you work. It's a great job for someone with school-age children or a side hustle. The jobs are usually always changing, so it is never the same thing over and over. Management is incredibly helpful and supportive; understanding about things like family. I love working for this company!

This is a job that can change every week as MCA represents a variety of clients. While you are expected to learn on your own with literature provided, the Alberta supervisor is always just a phone call away to provide and support or instruction needed.

not many hours

This is a minimum wage contract position with little to no renumeration for mileage and travel time. The company expects the contractor to accept all work out on the schedule. If a revisit for a job is required, they expect you to do it in your own dime.
The work itself is varied as there are many contracts the company lands. It is usually fairly easy work with flexible scheduling to suit the client, company and contactor. I have good communication with my district manager which is very helpful with this company.

Love working here! My direct manager is the best. Super accommodating, understanding and does not micro manage what so ever. Interview process was smooth and painless, other reps in the area were super nice and helpful too. The hours are great if part time is your thing. They run on contracts so certain projects come and go. Usually when one ends, a new project will start. I was never without hours which was nice. They pay for travel, printing costs and certain jobs get a base rate added on top of your hourly

I worked for MCA as a sales merchandiser. The hours of work were part time/contract work and
I was able to make my own schedule and never worked weekends. The management team are very helpful and supportive. This job is perfect for someone who wants part time hours and a flexible schedule. The work is straight forward and enjoyable. Highly recommend this company.

Lots of variety of challenges so my work day is always interesting. Tasks can include short term work (1-2 hours) or project work (5-8+ hours). Work is generally local to your residence.

When I worked at MCA it was like my second family. The work is stressful but with the right people around and unique jobs coming up all the time it was a wonderful atmosphere.

The management team was very supportive and did some good things for their employees

I joined MCA 5 years ago as a reline helper and then a Rep. I was given the opportunity to progress to a Supervisor, then District Manager and Regional Manager. Each step through the organisation was made with support, guidance and training from management, but with the freedom to add my spin and personality to each role. I was also given the opportunity to experience the role of an Account Manager to see 'life from the other side' and then use this experience back in the field. In my current role as Training & Development Manager, I am in the fortunate position of working with all departments across the business as we embrace the concept that it takes real teamwork from all parties to keep us 'Simply The Best!'

MCA offers opportunities to grow in terms of exposure to a variety of clients, projects and skills, with managers always willing to provide knowledge, insights and support.
Points positifs
Reps who have been with us for over 12 years says it all
Points négatifs
Fast paced so you must be willing to learn & grow

I joined MCA 4yrs ago to help a friend with a reline. It was hard work but so much fun that I helped with a few more. The field managers visited the relines to get to know the teams, provide additional training, coaching & support. This is how I was introduced to the merchandising industry. I was offered the opportunity to work on a variety of projects and was able to use my previous work experience to suggest productive & more efficient ways of working. What impressed me most was how receptive senior management was to good ideas and suggestions, and how quickly they were to act on them. My manager was very supportive and always willing to chat with me and provide support where needed.
The variety of projects keeps the work interesting. I am able to work for different clients on projects that range from audits to mystery shops to cosmetic relines. Each day is a little different and it never gets boring. I work according to the schedule that I set and as long as my projects are completed to standard and reported on time, the work is consistent and very rewarding.
Points positifs
Varied, interesting projects with a flexible schedule
Points négatifs
Can get quite busy at certain times of the year

Extremely Poor Management. You will wait for your pay, deal with incompetent leaders and management and at the end of it all they won't assign you any jobs. My performance? Top-notch. I pulled them out of a bind more than once, re-doing jobs that were totally messed up by other employees who receive regular assignments. If you want to enter the merchandising industry then use this company to train you (sort of), then move on to another one who will treat you with respect and pay you when you've worked. First time - waited 3 months for a missed pay. Still waiting for another payment after a month.
Points négatifs
Poor management, clean up after other staff who don't do their job, wait for months to get paid

Dear Anonymous,

Please help us understand the reason behind your experience. We truly value our field team and have reps who have been with us for more than 12 years, who are still getting regular hours . Our managers only lower hours if the quality is not delivered despite continuous training and support delivered. MCA promises to deliver quality and hence keeps a strong check on quality standards of our reps.


Please do not hesitate to reach out to our Director of Operations if you wish to address your concerns. You can contact us at 1-800-465-4755.


Best Wishes


Team MCA
