    Pros

    Company truly invest in your training. Plenty of spiffs to earn. Management is easy to talk to. Nice place to spend your day. Everyone is great and always eager to help.

    Cons

    Days can be hectic. This is a teleSALES job. Expect to be on the phone all day! Manage your time good for meetings and interruptions but remember you are in SALES.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to tell every new hire - this is a sales job... Training can confuse that aspect.

    Pros

    good equipment regular schedule I worked for airgas starting in 2000 to mid 2007 I had the best run of my driving career there I worked in the northern California area San Jose and Salinas ca left there and moved north to the wine country worked for there competitor for three years and linde a bulk gas supplier for three years so i have been exposed to the gas industry then one year otr with prior driving experience so all told 25 years or 2 1/2 million miles of driving with two accidents not dot reportable one overweight and one miss placarded ticket moved to Portland and was rehired by airgas in 2015 my 30 day review was fine

    Cons

    my 60 day review was not and i was let go just prior to my 90 days in this time i got very little feed back and was asked a number of times how it was going i was not perfect but did no damage was on time and enthusiastic until my 60 day review I do believe that one manager made sure i failed because i was from California and taking a job from an Oregonian I do not fault airgas and do own and recommend you buy stock in airgas as top management is the best but in the nor pac region don't say you are from California

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Freedom with hours. Opportunity to relocate.

    Cons

    Management is hired from outside of Airgas, often inexperienced managers are hired. Micro-management became a problem when newbies were hired into management positions. Since they couldn't contribute to sales they were forced to justify their position.

    Advice to Management

    Step aside and let the people who are more experienced and knowledgeable than you do their jobs.

    I enjoyed all of the training provided by Airgas. They were a forward thinking company when I worked there. They also offered great benefits and a fun team environment.

    Cons

    The cost of living raises weren't always enough to keep up with inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value your employees. They are the building blocks to a successful company.
