I have been working at MAT Holdings full-time
Decent benefits, decent promotion options. I have a good manager that does not fit into the category of most of the reviews on here.
There are some, but what company does not. Yes pay is substandard, and stress is high but again most companies are in this category lately. Training is not what it should be, there is no trainer that ensures what is learned before you are on your own.
Advice to Management
Please evaluate the managers in the organization and reorganize with some. Some people have been with the company too long and just don't have it in them anymore, they are just collecting their paycheck and taking your money.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at MAT Holdings (Long Grove, IL) in March 2016.
Had found the job on an industry specific website; send in my resume and got a call literally within hours. Talked to the HR guy, he asked salary requirements, moved it up the line, called me back within 3 hours to set up an interview.
Was told I'd fit for another opening as well and met with 3 sets of people. One it was straight forward talking about experience and challenges the job brings. The second was going over the resume with a fine tooth comb had me explain everything; that was for the alternate position; the third was the boss of the others. Did not have many questions, will discuss with staff. Had me sign background check and drug testing papers.
Received a follow up email, the next day that the interview went really well and haven't heard anything after that. (Background check would have been ok - just received my FOID card; have a high FICO score, never submitted anything for a drug test)
Overall: Was put into a small conference room had to wait a little there, the process took about 3 hours no offer of any refreshment (water/coffee) etc.
