    Former Employee - Bulk Route Delivery Driver in High Point, NC

    I worked at AmeriGas full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smaller community offices make it feel more like a small company atmosphere. This does often lead to gossip and favoritism, however.

    Cons

    Winter hours are insane with bulk truck drivers working crazy hours. If you were the one stuck with on call duty for the week it was even worse. You may be out at 3 or 4 in the morning working but still expected to be back @ 7am for the regular work day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat your employees the way you want to be treated and you may be able to maintain quality standards.

    I worked at AmeriGas full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with some great people.

    Cons

    Underlying mantra is, "We can't raise the price on a customer we don't have."
    MANDITORY overtime. No regards for family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees; they are your front line.

    I worked at AmeriGas full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Work- life balance, pretty easy to get a day or two off.
    Not too taxing on your body
    Pretty easy, in fact boring at times
    Usually off on holidays and weekends

    Cons

    I don't like it when companies shove overtime down your throat when they need it, but barely give you 40 hours when they don't need it. This job during the off-season ( warm months) can be very boring and tedious. I can recall several days when I had a route that I knew would not take more than 3 hours to complete, but I had to go somewhere to hide, take naps, and anything else to get my 8 hours. There are days when the manager will give you flat out "busy work". This can include refurbishing old gas tanks, cleaning up the yard, and even office work. My main con was the fact that the company will feed you safety, safety, safety until you are blue in the face--then they will feed you some more. They act like they care about safety of the employees so much, but all they are concerned with is not losing any money. You are subject to being written up for any and everything. Nothing like wondering if you are going to lose your job everyday. Shortly before I thankfully got another job opportunity, there was a simultaneous company- wide meeting throughout every district in the country. They pretty much told us that the company was letting a large number of employees go immediately due to the fact that the numbers were down from the prior year(2012). How's that for job security?? Being on -call every five weeks was horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the pay! A bob-tail driver should make more than $14.50. You preach about the job being so dangerous but the employees are not compensated as such. The on-call system needs to be tweaked. The district (branch) managers are notorious for micro-managing the employees. We could have run the place by ourselves in my opinion.

    I have been working at AmeriGas full-time

    Pros

    I like my boss and the people in my department, also, it's a job I know I'll never get fired from - it' impossible to get fired from this place.

    Cons

    Management and people in their department take zero responsibility and blame everyone else for their short comings. No room for advancement, pay isn't that great and the "raise" they give you every year is a joke - 1-3%, yeah way to keep up with that cost of living!

    I worked at AmeriGas full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I liked the local people that I was fortunate to work with

    Cons

    Unbelievably high prices, lack of customer focus (acquire another company so we can add their customers to the mix and then abuse them till they leave - then repeat), politics, politics, politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to focus on the core of the business - your customers!! Listen to what THEY are telling you

    I worked at AmeriGas full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefit package was good overall.

    Cons

    You can lose your job at the drop of a pen, literally. After 9 1/2 years of service I was terminated for failure to properly document my paperwork in an isolated incident. Everything has to be able to hold in court.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to find time to invest in your employees. I know the paper work and time on conference calls and emails will and do eat up your day but if you don't stay on top of their everyday work it will cost you a valuable employee. Corporate will eat both of you up.
