    I have been working at Matthews International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    new leadership with progressive / modern goals, objectives, values & Initiatives.

    Cons

    The mid-Level corporate leadership like to micro-manage the plants. They are driving bottom line results for improvement activities, instead of, instilling a culture of continuous improvement. It creates a weak foundation that will ultimately have to be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the plant managers do what you hired them to do and be careful which behaviors you enforce.

    Senior Financial Reporting Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Matthews International in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called in for an interview. Most of the interview was more a boastful presentation of the company than actual targeted questions about my skills and experience. I got the impression that as soon as I said I didn't have much experience with sales I was immediately no longer a viable candidate, even though many of my skills would have easily transfered. The interviewer sat reclined back in his chair with his hands behind his head and spit flying out of his mouth while he bragged about how he built the company from a small office in a small town and drew a map of it on the back of my resume. I was completely appalled at the lack of professionalism and level of disrespect and I felt intimidated and small. I was also told there were a few other more qualified candidates, but the position still remained open for over a year later. Needless to say, I'm happy I found a better fit.
