Do not work for matheson
AR (Current Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMOctober 17, 2018
They will post a job posting without telling you'll be doing work for 2 people for half the money. I thought they would be a great place to work but now that I have worked her for almost 3 years I can tell you. It was a bad career move. Do NOT work for this company. Air gas is in business because Matheson doesn't know how to deliver on time, they don't have strong management. Management doesn't respond. Your bonuses are lost, I'm waiting for years of back bonuses I'll probably never get.
Pros
You have a job
Cons
Management, time management.

Driver /U.S.P.S. Private Contractor (Former Employee) –  Tucson, AZAugust 20, 2018

Pros

Not the worst
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  San Leandro, CAOctober 4, 2018
It was a decent job. It paid well. It's a good job if you're looking for something temporary. The hardest part of the job is during peak season in December.

Comradery and teamwork.
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NEMarch 13, 2018
The company is/was a very friendly place to work, I enjoyed working with my teammates. Things changed and I decided to move on. Life is full of challenges both positive and negative. Learning to navigate them can be tricky, I enjoy interacting with fellow employees and helping them complete the tasks assigned to them.
Pros
Excelent health benfits and a team atmosphere.
Cons
Limitated opportunity to advance.

Very good pay if you opt out of benefits
Company Driver (Former Employee) –  Rapid City, SDNovember 4, 2018
The work enviromemt varies depending on what state and what runs you do, as well as the pay. This run pays well at $23.98/hr. You also get $5.03/hr for H&W pay. Vacation is 1 week first year, 2 weeks 2nd-4th years, 3 weeks 5+. If you are looking for overtime this company does not pay it. If you are looking at working 60+ hours a week then you will want to be a team driver. There is no per deim or compensation for that. If you have to shut down due to weather, you will not get any compensation for the first 10 hours. Now they do have great benefits, but at a steep price. If you go with the company benefits, you do not get your health and wellness pay, and depending on your plan and who will be on it, you can look at up to $200 per week deducted from your paycheck. If you wave your benefits, 50% of your H&W pay goes into your pay (capped at 40 hours a week) and the other half goes into your 401k. You can still get the voluntary life insurance, disability, etc though. Management, you mainly hear from them if you’ve done something wrong, which is usually all the time. All the trucks have cameras. Biggest thing is communication. Except for the guys you work with that live in the same city, or the relay drivers you meet with, there is hardly communication. Trucks are a couple years old.
Pros
Pay, trucks, co-workers
Cons
Management, benefits, no sick days

Fun fast pace place of work

Average day at work would include a cup of coffee before starting to wash trucks and maintain the shop constantly throughout the day. If necessary I would take inventory of parts.
Pros
Steady work
Cons
Far from home

Great PEAK season job
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MONovember 2, 2017
This was temporary from Nov-Christmas. Located in the caves so I was able to avoid trekking to and from my car in weather. Also, the cave environment, though dirty was a cozy temperature to work in.

The management always treated me with kindness and respect. Being a hard worker who needs zero oversight, the opportunity to stay productive autonomously was amazing.

The only drawbacks were the few lazy co-workers who would get in the way of your progress. (A problem that the Management fought to end has since been able to fix the issue by screening better.) These slackers would travel in packs, come to an area with fast workers and pretend to work. The result would be, having to repeatedly dodge them to complete your work.
Pros
Pay, Management, Autonomy
Cons
Temporary

If your Management (upper) your still not safe
driver, site (Former Employee) –  Millersburg, OROctober 18, 2017
As a driver at Matheson you are constantly looking over your shoulder for "big Brother". It seems to be that if you are not in Management and never question higher up decisions you are relatively safe. Power trips were common. Management was required to follow employees searching for violations. Vacation coverage was poor to say the least. A scheduled vacation would be cancelled or customer deliveries would be put off due to this. When a driver returned from vacation, he was expected to make up the deliveries with out putting in overtime all the while preaching no rushing. There are numerous other issues to discuss but it was a blessing to leave the company.
Pros
Cant think of any. Maybe the pay was ok but not the top of industry.
Cons
Too many to list.

Haul US mail
OTR CDL truck driver (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CAOctober 15, 2017
No time and a half overtime. Live in the truck. Short routes always are night shift. For a young person to get started, it would be all right. Stay in the truck, save your money. But you can't have a life until you quit. 20 an hour is not enough to have to be in the truck ALL the time. And you only get paid for the 12 hrs a day that you're on duty.
Pros
not enough
Cons
No life

Matheson is a good company with some problems
Driver/front desk (Former Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TXNovember 26, 2017
Matheson is a good company with a few minor problems that can lead to a stressful day at work. The shortage of people with a strong sense of ethics leave companies with very little choices in hiring and promotions.

Be ontime and safe at work
Distribution Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 31, 2017
Matheson was a good place to work as long as you are not management. As with most companies, cutting budget is the game and management personnel are the first to go. Hourly employee is the way to go. Some overtime when required. Safe work practices and environment to work in. Constant changes to management.
Pros
Excellent benefits
Cons
Too many bosses
