    Don't work here!

    Bulk Driver (Former Employee) Negaunee, MI

    ProsIf things were different, then I could give some pros. The only pro I can think of is that the company is safe conscience.

    ConsRecent company focus/vision change has caused company to fully have the corporate mentality which doesn't care about customers, but instead, just how the numbers look. Also, management where I looked were all about hiring employees that are related in some way, and screwing over veteran employees. Also, the company (especially HR) does not care when an employee clearly was bullied and intimidated by management to the point of anxiety and doing the right thing when it was needed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst Management ever in Indiana

    CSS/Lead CSS and Dispatcher (Former Employee)

    ProsPay was good, co-workers nice

    ConsWas harassed and bullied by Ops Manager and general Manager. Upper management was always changing, changing rules, not adjusting prices to be competitive. Manager liked to play tricks and shut water off to building so i could not flush the toilet, tacs put in my chair, car in parking lot messed with. Reported to Corporate, but the good ole boys, ratted me out and made things worse.. Worst experience in my life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean house on good ole boys, all buddies with CEO...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company; HORRIBLE management!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits; days off were pleasant when you knew what your schedule was.

    ConsPay VERY sub-par for how hard you work. You will need back and shoulder surgery if you make it 2 years. It doesn't matter how hard you work, you are only a number. If you have a voice or concerns, leave your voice at home. You will be fired if you question safety concerns. Zero chance of advancement. Two-faced managers who are belittling men in a text message, but your best friend to your face. DO NOT work here if you enjoy your family.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your drivers and little people. Get back to the company that cares about your customers and employee. Remember that "Money is the root of all evil."

    Run fast

    Drive (Current Employee) North Little Rock, AR

    ProsGood pay at first, and a okay balance for personal life until winter

    ConsNo raises, on call without pay. No chance of promotion unless you are friends with the boss. told to try to win contests against other districts to win prizes or dinners, when you win they never fullfill their part. They ask for sales leads all the time to give to the salesman who doesn't follow up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop with the new rollouts every few years!! Seriously just do what made us great sale at a good price and have REAL CUSTOMER SERVICE, not just name only.

    Unprofessional

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompany pay period is every two weeks, ESOP, 401K

    ConsEmployees are expected to work 40 hours a week without benefits, low pay when compared to other companies, constantly restructuring, your job never feels secure, they add fees to services to increase revenue so managers bonus, but then lose customer base the following year and blame customer service, run like a good old boy company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are a company in debt trying to pay out dividends to stock-holders, while your main goal remains to increase your personal wealth at the expense of others...my advise is to start praying; you will need it in your after-life.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Agree with delivery driver from OMAHA. Low pay, no opportunity for advancement, poor management.

    Driver (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's a job and helps to pay some of the bills. Some overtime in winter months but no full time position available per middle management.

    ConsI have been working for Ferrellgas for 7 years as part time driver. Work 40+ hours a week but no full time benefits. No raise in 6 years. Management thinks they can lead by intimidation and bullying the employees. I have had the same experience as the Omaha driver wrote about. I am located in Florida so it appears this tactic is company wide.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMicromanagement does not work. It only serves to anger and frustrate drivers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Low pay, worked like a dog, no job security, ruled by fear and intimidation

    Delivery Driver (Current Employee) Omaha, NE

    ProsI liked the people I worked closest with. Some overtime in the winter months. But otherwise no good reason to work there.

    ConsI only got one 4% raise in 5 years. Employees were fired, and offices closed with no reason and no notice. The bonuses that were promised never materialized. I begged middle and upper management for raises and they said " I'll see what I can do" still no raises. We are now down to 5 employees to do all the work. Customers have to call the corporate office if they need something done, otherwise the work just gets blown off. I is a terrible place to work!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at the Sioux City (Omaha) service center and tell me why there is so much turnover.
