I have been working at MAT Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
The best thing about working at MAT is the comradeship that results from working with others to get something done that you couldn't possibly do alone. This is actually the key beauty of distribution operations on a whole, but some don't see it that way.
My coworkers, like myself, are faced with objectives, and challenges that stand in the way of those objectives. Accomplishment of our goals requires strength in both body and mind. The only people who don't make any mistakes don't do any work--and, btw, it's not a mistake until it leaves the building. These are the values that I know.
My superiors are open to feedback. Raised voices are less than a rare occurrence. Firings sometimes have taken too long to happen, but by the same token I'm not always right and the decisions have so far always had a positive impact on our operations. It is good that nobody is fired at the drop of a hat.
To my knowledge, the pay at our facility matches the local market rates for each job category. Health insurance is said to be good. I have not been called on to use it.
Vacation and personal time are ample. Many end up with some left over. These are lost, but only by personal choice.Cons

Communication is key. Leadership team meetings at the DC level are very important, as are other group level communications with the DC Workforce. Ops managers should be both empowered to fully employ their own budges and to conference on their strategies and decisions with one another, so as to learn or adopt new tactics.RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO

It would be wrong to assume that you'll be seeing Midwest Air Technologies' products in the wild blue yonder. Though the company makes many things, airplanes don't make the list. Midwest Air Technologies' (MAT) offerings include chain-link fencing for dog kennels, wire and plastic fencing for residential and agricultural use, and lawn and garden decor (arbors, topiaries).
