Customer Service Specialist I (Current Employee) – Lakewood, WA – October 17, 2017
I have never enjoyed working with a group of people so much I love being able to be myself with the customers Management was awesome I think the worst thing about this place is the computer not working as you want it all the time.
no advancement and no one to provide suggestions too
Stressful environment with everyone waiting to be let go or have their projects dumped on a whim.
IT (Former Employee) – Corporate – September 15, 2017
They are interested in their stock price, "The Street," & acquisitions, not how the job is done. While claiming to be "maturing," they have let go more and more people who actually understand the processes that make their disparate businesses work. They don't believe in paying a PMO or PM's, they also don't understand industry standards & measures, or what a COE is for. Top heavy with Executives, the company actually reminds one of a martini glass: wide and full at the top (Executives,) thin stemmed (the management,) and flat on the bottom (those who actually do the work)
Benefits, various business units across the globe.
Sewer (Former Employee) – York, PA – August 23, 2017
If you want to work and work and feel so unappreciated and be treated like you are nobody then go to Mattews . Management are mean and there's a lot of discrimination . Really Stressful environment to work with, the evaluation it's never in your favor that way you won't get a race , they never told us the time we get off they tell us 10 minutes before we clock out . It's good money but I can't remember how many times I went home crying because the abuse that it's in that place . Horrible!
Management, Never know when we get off, change on schedule, poor communication
Dangerous Goods Specialist (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – June 1, 2017
At one time we were breaking sales records every month, but in the past year we were informed the company was outsourcing and we were going to be out of work. The morale, work load, and the way we the business was being handled completely shifted.

Finishing Department (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 4, 2017
liked everyone that i worked around but if you were not buddy's with managers then you are screwed. learned a good bit of differnt jobs while i was there but the skills are useless anywhere else they brought new managers in to clean house. gave them 3 hard working years of my life. And was disgarded like trash. i do miss some of the great hard working people i worked with and the paycheck but thats about it. the night time bosses could care less for anyone who dosent kiss there butt. good luck to anyone applying you will not work there long enough to retire. And alot of work sent to mexico
ELECTRO-MECHANICAL TECHNICIAN LEVEL (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 3, 2017
Very fast pace work day. Matthews paid to further my education. The management seemed very disconnected from their production personnel. The workplace culture is very old-school with that blue collar mentality. Hardest part of the job is lack of communication. The most enjoyable part of the day is it went fast for 12 hour shifts.
Union Laborer (Former Employee) – Aurora, IN – March 25, 2017
This company is horrible to work for. First year in the company and they start laying off employees. The money is what attracts you , but I assure you its not worth the amount of stress and management that you deal with. Day to day is different on how long you will be there, so don't make plans. They will tell you a day before you have to work a Saturday and they wont care if you have any type of prior responsibilities.
Poor management at Pittsburgh Bronze location. Good pay, unhappy employees.
Set-up Operator (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 16, 2017
Extremely poor management. Management will target employees they personally don't like and micro-manage them and bully them into quitting. Everyone is unhappy with the company. Supervisors will not stand up for you. Lots of mandatory overtime with little or no notice. The work is simple, it could be a great job if it weren't for the poor management.
once was a great place to work for but not anymore
custom polisher/ Inspector (Former Employee) – York, PA – February 13, 2017
worked here for 25years and current management is terrible it was good a long time ago but not any more. They lie about everything and will do what ever they have to cover up things they don't want upper management to fine out about. And its definitely a buddy system they have going on in there.Its a steady pay check but the stress they put on you is not worth it. i would advise everyone to run form this company and never look back.
Great company to work for, one of the leading suppliers in the industry. Leanrened the value of Safety First and Leadership skills and importance of hard work. The demanding schedule is the hardest part of the job as its unpredicatable due to the nature of the work.
Delivery Driver and Warehouse Worker (Part Time) (Former Employee) – Robesonia Pa – January 12, 2017
This is a ghost job posting do not bother applying. Applied, within a day completed a phone interview. Was told they would be in touch with a time to do a face to face interview. A week went by, I emailed the representative I spoke with no answer, so I left a phone message no answer. Gave it another week went to the office that the position was for, left name and number for office manager to call no response. An answer yes or no over the phone or email would have been awesome, but there was no communication on their part. I guess this is a good thing, lord knows how it would have been if they were actually hiring.
Data Center Technician (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – December 27, 2016
Matthews IT department consisted of uncooperative idiots with extremely poor communication skills. I did excellent work there, but was happy to leave when the job was completed. I do not recommend anyone to even waste their time applying there.
