      Management has been wonderful and understanding during Covid. This has brought a true new meaning to work/life balance as many juggle careers, remote learning, and childcare. Work/life balance has always been a Marchex plus but this just shows how much leadership careers about well-being and safety. It's also great to work for a company with an exciting product suite.


      The pay could be improved on

      Thank you for the review! We're glad you enjoy working at Marchex!

        Not many pros. It’s a job?


        They don’t pay full commissions. You earn the money but then need to argue with managers and finance to get paid every month.

        We appreciate your feedback and are sorry to learn about your experience with commission payments. Our employees' satisfaction is a priority, and we apologize for any inconvenience you've faced. We are committed to ensuring fair compensation for the hard work of our employees. If you would be open to it, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your experience further and gather more details to help us improve. Please feel free to reach out to your manager or People Services at any time.

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Project Manager

      Hey everyone, Just needed to vent a bit about this job hunt. It's been a wild ride, to say the least. Lately, it feels like I'm sending my applications into a black hole, and I'm not alone in this, am I? Interviews seem to be the rarest gems, and job postings seem to disappear as soon as I hit 'apply.' Anyway, I'd love to hear your experiences. What's been your biggest frustration as a job seeker? How do you stay motivated in this crazy journey? Any words of wisdom or empathy to share?


      Marketing Manager

      What are people’s thoughts on those personality and logic tests some companies made you do as part of the hiring process? I frankly don’t like them. I understand if the test is for people who more technical but for roles leaning more creative or ideas based - I don’t understand how patterns I’m forced to review in a short time tells them I’m worth it to get the Hiring manager round. One asked me 50 ques in 15 min. And they never tell how you did on the tests


      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?
