“First things first, the management is very bad, even...”

Written on: 29/06/2014 by Gracelyn1987 (1 review written)

First things first, the management is very bad, even if you are a good worker, they will nitpick and try to find something negative about you. Why? to assert their power. They are rude and arrogant, think they know everything when in actual fact they don't, they look stupid. NEVER EVER get a job in matalan, especially if you're teenager, the pay is shocking - so not worth it. I hope head office knows that it is the managers and not the workers who are bad, they are terrible at giving… Read Full Review

“Lazy, ignorant, arrogant and rude customer service ”

Written on: 25/06/2014 by IAmAHumanBeing (1 review written)

Ordered online and cancelled order the next day as items were not going to be received in time. Order was confirmed cancelled and complaint sent to refund department. Yet order was delivered the next day when we were not home and left on street facing doorstep. When contacting the customer care centre,i use that term very loosely as it has no care and would be more helpful and a better credit to Matalan if they simply leave a tape recording running, i was told they could not help me with out… Read Full Review

“worst delivery and customer service ever”

Written on: 24/06/2014 by Haynesjd339 (1 review written)

I have ordered shoes online and: 1. I have never received the parcel (although I was waiting for more than 15 days!) 2. I had tremendous difficulties reaching their customer service by email and by phone 3. they kept sending me these self-generated emails (no reply possible) and despite my refund claim I have not heard back from them 4. when I finally could have someone on the phone I was put on hold for very long periods of time during which the person was trying to see what she could do 5… Read Full Review

“Click and Collect”

Written on: 19/06/2014 by BrunoMuir386 (1 review written)

DO NOT USE IF YOU WANT YOUR ITEMS IN LESS THAN 3 DAYS. Click and collect in store says 1-3 days. In my experience it should just say 3 days. Though the money was taken from my credit card the 2nd day I was still waiting for an e-mail on the 3rd day. And I'm still waiting at 1pm.(Why can't they deliver like other large company's next day)It has really put me off Matalan and I will only use them now as a last resort… Read Full Review

“Great range of items and late opening times (in...”

Written on: 09/06/2014 by Marquesz31 (1 review written)

The diverse fans of clothes and styles which they offer is fabulous. For the homeware section to the nightwear section. There is always somehing that someone in my family likes. The greatest plus point is that it is like a local shop where I can always find something at the last minute if necessary as they open quite late too in comparison to other high street shops. The only thing which I would pull them up about is sometimes the collections in store can be a bit bland, but they always have… Read Full Review

“Store makeover & service with a smile!”

Written on: 07/06/2014 by KEH123 (1 review written)

The Accrington branch of Matalan has been greatly improved with its latest makeover. I want to mention Kelly in particular. I was being attended to at the till next to hers and couldn't help noticing her very pleasant helpful not least professional way she dealt with her customer. She used the personal touch with her customer, chatting in general whilst being most efficient. From an employers point of view, you couldn't wish for a better sales person. She remarked on the quality and good deal… Read Full Review

“Waste of Time”

Written on: 05/06/2014 by Cloe48 (1 review written)

Matalan stores use in store audio advertising to encourage its customers to shop by using the internet. one problem none of the store numbers can be found on the internet because they use different numbers. in a survey amongst my friends and family 83% said that whilst in large stores if they cannot find a product they use their camera phones to take pictures of the product label then return home to search the internet fot that product. THAT DONT WORK IN MATALAN… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/04/2014 by Carroll214 (1 review written)

My partner bought a suit from matalan we washed the trousers and they came out with holes all over. We went to the store with the suit the day we washed them and the lady on the counter told is that they would exchange it for a new suit we couldn't find a suit we wanted on that day so we have been back today and the same women told us that because we haven't got a receipt she would no longer replace it after speaking to the manager she was very sarcastic and cocky and didn't help one bit saying… Read Full Review

“Don't buy online unless using Paypal”

Written on: 19/01/2014

I purchased a coat online that never arrived, but the money had been deducted from my bank account via PayPal. I tried emailing and calling customer services who were particularly frustrating and unhelpful to talk to. They kept insisting that since I didn't have a valid order number (which is hardly my problem when they themselves issued it) the money couldn't possibly have been deducted from my bank account?!?! I gave up at this point and raised a claim with Paypal and then got my money… Read Full Review

“Star duvet covers”

Written on: 23/12/2013

I purchased 3 single bed duvet covers for my boys bedroom as I liked the design. They were so thin paper thin & slippery they won't stay on every morning when I make the beds I find the quilts are in a ball in the middle or all fallen down one end of the cover. My boys hate them. I wouldn't even give them away. Could I still return them without packaging or receipt ?… Read Full Review

“Worst place ive ever worked at...”

Written on: 15/12/2013

Just to start off with, I have over 4 years retail experience. I started work at Matalan as a Christmas temp. I was told I would have training for the tills but never received any. I was never taught anything about the gift or money of vouchers, let alone how to use the actual till itself, so obviously sometimes I would have a problem, and have to ask my colleges for help. They are always so un approachable and make me feel like poo. When the managers finally do make it out of there office to… Read Full Review

“Plus Size Clothing”

Written on: 19/11/2013

With a quarter of the female population reported to be Plus Sized, you would think a company like Matalan would be trying to capture some of that market. The Northwich Matalan store in Cheshire is a waste of time if you are looking for Plus Size Clothing. The Rogers & Rogers range has been removed. The store is huge, but they can't find a space for Plus Size Clothing. You can only order online for delivery to store. So Ladies, I suggest you order 3 sizes of everything you wish to look at… Read Full Review
