Management wants you to run the department without asking any questions during the process.
Construction Estimator (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh paDecember 27, 2018
Don’t waste your time - move on to the next opportunity unless your a experienced construction estimator and only want to make $70k per year because the title “Construction Estimator” basically stands for “Chief/Head Estimator” but of course they are cheap and are only willing to pay the minimum they can. Forcing that person into the chief position and then complaining when they hired someone unable to complete the job.
What they should do (since the construction estimator is the chief and the ONLY estimator) is pony up the money even if it is above what upper management makes especially if all the responsibilities land on the construction estimator and ONLY the construction estimator.

Purchaser/Inventory Clerk (Current Employee) –  York, PAOctober 7, 2018
don't try to get hired here.
Upper Management caters to a few distribution centers whims without much consideration of misallocated resources and costs involved.My immediate supervisor was a great person and manager. I believe he will make CEO one day. He should anyway..Doesn't
good pay, physical work, sometimes the atmosphere is good
unprofessional management and coworkers. sometimes the workload is unpredictable

TREASURY ANALYST (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAAugust 22, 2018
Back when I first started, it was a good place to work. There were lots of perks and good co-workers. Now it is all about the bottom line and stock price. Not many people there are happy.
Pros
Match 401k
Cons
always wants more out of you without compensation.

Ok if you don't mind 12 hour days
Packaging Production Manager (Current Employee) –  Skillman, NJAugust 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.
Pros
Flexible work from home fridays
Cons
You can work a 12 hour day and it goes unappreciated, as its the norm.

Some of the best years of my life!
Customer Service / Operations Leader (Former Employee) –  Richmond, INAugust 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.
Pros
Good solid corporate structure.
Cons
Stressful!

Operations Support Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJune 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.

Great People

Out of Control Managment
Engineer (Former Employee) –  PennsylvaniaJune 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.
Pros
Great Hourly & Supervisor Staff

Office Manager/HR assistant (Former Employee) –  Woburn, MAJune 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.

Overall, its a good place to work
Operator (Current Employee) –  Searcy, ARJune 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!!
Pros
Competitive pay and supervisors that basically have an open door policy
Cons
Rare opportunities for advancment

not fun
Sales Representative-Mid Level (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJune 4, 2018
The culture is chaotic. Sales not only competes with companies outside itself, in addition to competition within Mathews. Management is a dictatorship based upon personal relationships.

Start at the top and cut down. Terrible company
Employee (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMay 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
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Poor management ruins the company

Nice place to work with some perks along the years of service. Got to meet a lot of customers and spend time with them on state conventions. Some phone work got a little tedious but there were some easier days along the way.
