    I have been working at Matheson Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pays well, good home time, easy work. Management and Employees rock! Company is well established and has good benefits with a 401K program. All business's go through changes and your never going to find the perfect one. Matheson Trucking has new equipment and strives to meet there employees needs. Big shout out to Johnny and Gary in Boise Idaho for doing a great job with managing all the drivers and routes during peak season and off.

    Cons

    Only con I have is I didn't apply sooner.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job.

    I worked at Matheson Inc. part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Balance of up (active work) time and down time.

    Cons

    Some rotation of jobs available but you must actively jump in and help when the opportunity arises. Watch for safety issues.

    Advice to Management

    Plan to lease a facility that is large enough for both equipment and workers to work safely. Advertise the pay rate honestly.

    I worked at Matheson Inc. (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The employees are very loyal to the company and their customers. Pay is set by the Department of Labor, so there are few concerns about unequal pay. They have a good benefit plan including medical, dental and vision. I also like the investment options available in the 401k. I always felt like I could talk to HR (even the VP) if I had an issue.

    Cons

    Management didn't seem concerned about giving positive feedback. We didn't have any on-going programs to reward us for safe driving. Sometimes we got the impression that management was just looking at things that bothered them so that they could bring it to our attention.

    Advice to Management

    Create programs that allow management to communicate to the employees - more frequent face-to-face meetings; a regular newsletter; publish events that should be rewarded

    I worked at Matheson Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to learn and have visibility to the full accounting cycle. Hands on audits, working with auditors throughout the year. CFO was very confident in my work and did not micromanaged.

    Cons

    Turnover rate was very high during my time there. But it was a rough path with the economy.

    Advice to Management

    Be more down to earth. Communicate with your employees discuss family, outside of work conversations. Round up the team and participate in outside activities.

    We appreciate your feedback. The USPS is our major client so, unfortunately, we don't control work schedules as much as we'd like. It can be rough on our people, that's for sure!!

    Pros

    The weekly pay is great. Once you find an effective way to work it's ok.

    Cons

    I worked during the month of December only and tax time has come and gone and I still have not received my W2s. No one is returning my calls.
