Very Productive workplace
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVJanuary 9, 2016
A very fast paced environment with mounds of work to do yet at the end of the day the work flow keeps you busy so time goes by fast.
I worked with some really great co workers who came in with a positive attitude and left with a smile
Amazing Managers that really worked their butt off trying to meet the standards and deadlines
Heavy lifting made it a little hard sometimes but there was always someone around who was willing to help
Being able to work at my own pace is what was the best part about the job, i wasnt over stressed yet i was working at a pace to where i was comfortable. Being comfortable at a work place is the best thing you can do to an employee.

Fly by Night Operation
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Postal ContractJanuary 26, 2015
The goals are based on quantity. The policies are extremely forgiving, attendance and timeliness are not expected. Because of this, you regularly work understaffed. The job can be fun though it is hard work and very dirty. There is exposure to the weather but limited. No outdoor gear is provided.

The worst part of the job is the favoritism and unpredictable hours. It is a great second job, or job while in school. People are often sent home early on already short shifts (3-4 hours). Hours are around the clock and wildly fluctuate due to mail volume predictions. It pays to be in the club, or to complain a lot. All policies are subjective.

Human resources, IT department, corporate in general is not proactive and is difficult to get any form of support. They regularly fail to provide promised resources necessary for the job. Equipment is not maintained and is quite dangerous. There is not training, though you will need to sign off on it.

Hourly rate is not bad, and the work is not usually stressful. It is not a job you take home with you. They sometimes give out t-shirts.

The company is based on contracts and is not a good long term plan, as they could lose the contract at anytime. They bid contracts very low and shave the expense off hourly employee time and benefits.
Pros
low stress, no standards, fun crews, decent hourly pay, physical
Cons
dirty, unpredictable, unsystematic, cheap, low quality standards

A good place to work, but no room for advancement.
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZNovember 27, 2013
Matheson is a good place to work. Once clocked in employees offload trucks containing mail and packages. Once postage is off the trucks, it is manually loaded into containers that are later inspected and prepared for air transport. After the containers pass inspection, they are driven and loaded into the aircraft. This process is repeated until all postage is fully loaded on the aircraft/s. I learned quite a bit of FAA regulations and involvement of the FAA during charter flights containing certain materials other than postage. The Management is great and easy going. However, there is not much to manage during average days, but micromanagement takes affect during the charter flights, due to safety and handling of special cargo. The workers at Matheson are hard working and friendly. The work load can be rather exhausting, but the workers have good personalities that make it entertaining. The hardest part of the job is to strategically load the individual packages into the containers (it takes practice to develop a rhythm for loading different containers). The most enjoyable part of the job is the personality that employees bring to the work place (including management).
Pros
if work is completed in good time, then breaks are longer.
Cons
depending on the volume of workload, breaks are less available.

Absolutely terrible
Driver Class A (Former Employee) –  PetalumaOctober 30, 2013
Worst people I have ever worked for. Matheson hates its drivers- They flip flop your schedule stating that it keeps you more alert, coerce you into busting hours (and later punish you for it) and cheat you out of time worked on your paycheck. No overtime is paid. Management is encouraged to fire drivers without grounds and the union does little or nothing when grievances are filed. Maintenance is bad and they will try and blame you for what they don't fix. Oh yeah, they laid off about 3/4 of the company before christmas 2012 and gave us 24hr's notice- Nice...
Pros
the work itself, is easy. good healthcare.
Cons
everything else
