Working at Matboard and More

Working at Matboard and More

A lot of us have had some rotten jobs over the years. For those of you who may wonder, though, Matboard and More is not one of those places. We wanted to give you a small peak behind the scenes, and tell you a little bit how your projects all come together. After all, it’s nice to know a little about the companies you do business with.

The first thing you may notice when walking into the warehouse is that it might seem chaotic. We process dozens of orders a day, hundreds of mats and frames. There’s a lot going on at once. But if you look closely, you will see that while there is a lot going on, nothing is chaotic. Everyone understands their duties, or knows where to go with questions. What may look like chaos at one end of the warehouse is simply a fast-moving system that produces neatly organized and packaged orders at the other end, ready to ship off to our customers.

Organization is key here, but so are the employees. When you picture a warehouse, you may be picturing something rather different from our warehouse. We keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter, because we understand people work best when they are comfortable. Music plays through the warehouse all day, though employees are free to listen to their own music while they work. It almost feels relaxed, though if you look you won’t actually see anyone slacking off.

These things didn’t happen by accident. The owners of Matboard and More are not distant CEOs. They are all directly involved with the company, often working side by side with the employees. They understand the importance of listening to employees, and doing what we can to create a good work environment. They know what it’s like to work for their own company first hand. This both helps them understand their employees, it also helps them keep an eye out for ways to improve our processes.

And perhaps the most important thing for providing a good workplace- good people. Everyone we spoke to mentioned their fellow co-workers as one of the things they like about working at Matboard and More. More than a few mentioned feeling like a family. Sure enough, if you ever go by our warehouse, you won’t see much in the way of turnover. We have work working employees that tend to stick around, from those who have been in the framing business their whole lives, to those who are just getting started in the industry.

All in all, Matboard and More is a great place to work. The respect we show our employees is in turn passed down to the customers. Weather cutting a complex order, assisting with a custom design, or simply packing your order up for shipping, we always treat our customers and their projects with respect.
