Packaging Production Manager (Current Employee) – Skillman, NJ – August 21, 2018
If manager is good work is good and team work is good. Its a tough business when they cut back they let you go no problem, even if you are working there for years. And with the same logic you get rehired like nothing happened. You are dispensable, and they let you know it.
Flexible work from home fridays
You can work a 12 hour day and it goes unappreciated, as its the norm.
Laborer (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 8, 2018
The place is terrible from the outdated Machinery the supervisors the bold-faced lie to you from corrupt CEOs that steal millions of dollars investigated by the FBI 2 dry erase boards that monitor your work to the fact that when people die you make money with your stock Investments it's a circus it's always been a circus it'll always be a circus from the clowns to the freak shows
You'll always have work making headstones cuz people are always going to die
Customer Service / Operations Leader (Former Employee) – Richmond, IN – August 1, 2018
I worked in the Memorialization segment. It is a very fast paced environment. I wouldn't call it a job so much as a way of life. I was on call pretty much around the clock for a lot of years, but well compensated. It can be very stressful due to the nature of the business, but you have a good team to support you. I would recommend this company to anyone.
Operations Support Team Lead (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – June 29, 2018
Great place to learn various Technologies. People were just fantastic. I got to work for one of the best IT Supervisors ever. When I was there, the company was doing a major overhaul of there systems. It was a heavy work load but it was worth it in the end.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Pennsylvania – June 27, 2018
This would be a great place to work except the leader is awful. The corner office is run by a toxic bully that has almost zero self awareness, belittles and demotivates the staff, and in borderline abusive to the workforce.
Office Manager/HR assistant (Former Employee) – Woburn, MA – June 22, 2018
It is a Company not too concerned with their Employees any longer. When Matthews bought Schawk we became Schawk. It was then it went downhill. Employees would leave for other Jobs and not be replaced. It became too much work on the remaining employees.
Operator (Current Employee) – Searcy, AR – June 13, 2018
It's a workplace that requires manual labor in most job settings. However, you find this out during your interviewing process so it should come as no surprise. I cannot speak for all Matthews locations. But the Searcy, Ar location has made terrific progress concerning safety and the way management interacts with employees in the time that I've been associated with the company. If you're looking for advancement it's not the company for you. However, if you're looking for a steady work schedule, competitive pay, a place where your supervisor isn't hoovering over you if you're doing your job right ,and an overall safe environment. Matthews is perfect for you!!
Competitive pay and supervisors that basically have an open door policy
Employee (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 30, 2018
Started as a good job for the money. Turned into terrible days. Management lacks a genuine connection with employees. You are considered a body. Matthews doesn’t care about their employees having families or an outside life. Discriminatory comments and actions from management at times. Think they can talk to you any kind of way. Already stressful enough dealing with caskets and dead ppl but to wake up everyday to go to a depressing job where the people don’t care about you is worse. I wouldn’t recommend anyone working here
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 16, 2018
I love being part of a rapidly growing company. The skills and experience I have gained will be forever useful. With the company's growth and desire to remain an industry leader, I look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead. If you enjoy a fast-paced, collaborative work environment, where your efforts are valued, I recommend Matthew's International.
CAD Operator / Group Leader (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – December 29, 2017
The company was employee owned at one time, but as soon as they went public with the stock it was the beginning of the end. Every decision made was driven by stock value, including employee layoffs and plant closures.
