Office Manager (Current Employee), Macomb, MI – November 16, 2013
Pros: access to facility 24 hours; fitness center, swimming pools. living on property.
Cons: sometimes the stress level is very high.
My job is deadline orientated, revolving around Residential billing of 1800 rental and home owner sites. My job also revolves around the residents, and communicating with them. Everything from their rent, delinquency, and problem solving with other neighbors, management, and work orders. I have learned and continue to learn resident relations, time – more... management, office management and multitasking. I am always trying to learn more and advance myself. My co-workers and I work as a team, like well oiled machine. We realize that each one of us cannot do our job without the other, and must work together well. My managers above me are focused and inspiring. The hardest part of my job is keeping a consistent flow of work with many interruptions. I am not in an office where I can work alone, while attending to my computer or book work, I must answer questions of my co-workers, residents, and future residents either in person, or over the phone. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with such a great team, and building relationships with the residents, earning their trust and respect. – less
Material Handler (Former Employee), Hazelwood, MO – November 13, 2013
Matrix is a place to work, not a place to get comfortable, the hours are long, the management did not understand how to make moral of employees go up. No incentive to move up in the company other than self motivation.
A very good place to get into the inspection industry
QA/QC Tech / NDE Coordinator / Hydro Coordinator (Current Employee), Bellingham, WA – October 31, 2013
Pros: the satisfaction of knowing you're making a facility a safer place for people to work.
Cons: not a lot of room for advancement based on your experience / knowledge
Working for Matrix has been challenging and fun on a daily basis. I've learned inspection can be challenging when working out in the elements. Management personnel at Matrix are genuine and constantly strive for success and client satisfaction. Co-workers have been professional and upstanding. The hardest part of the job is working in harsh outdoor – more... weather. The most enjoyable part of inspection is being set up for success and walking away from a site knowing everything meets / exceeds code and you're leaving the clients facility knowing it is a safe place for employees to work. – less
