    I worked at Airgas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for seemed to really care about their employees. Great environment, hours and staff. Would love to rejoin some day

    Cons

    Location was far from my home, and small. Facility it self wasn't the greatest. Located in middle of residential area. Local police were okay to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Hire me back I loved the hours and the people I worked with. Liked all of the cross training that I learned.

    Pros

    Great place to learn something new and put your skills to work

    Cons

    Experience industry is definitely a plus. the gas industry is not a very common industry to work in because there isn't very much competition and isn't used by everyone like electronics for example.

    Advice to Management

    People should be better assessed to be placed in the right positions for their skill sets

    I worked at Airgas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company has great benefits, it keeps you in shape, you meet people from a multitude of industries which makes it enjoyable serving your customers. I enjoyed being out and about working at my pace to get the job done. The scenery isn't bad either depending on where you work. Florida was great.

    Cons

    Delivering bottled gases at a job site can be very frustrating (rolling bottles on dirt - getting bottles to the bottle rack). You have to be willing to work in all kinds of weather. Lightening storms can be fun on the back of a steel truck.

    Advice to Management

    The raises could be better.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and pay. Plenty of opportunity for advancement. The management team knows hot to deliver results. Great team of people to work with in all facets of the business. Tremendous knowledge and experience. Plenty of stock. It was a great ride while it lasted.

    Cons

    At times, it took a bit too long to deliver products to customers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on your path. You have laid the foundation for long term steady growth.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, opportunity to advance and a great safety program.

    Cons

    It's a dangerous environment if you don't follow SOP and the safety program.

    Advice to Management

    They should spend time with the "blue collar" employees. They should get their hands dirty so they can understand and know the whole panorama of the business.

    I have been working at Airgas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Flextime (for MOST departments; obviously some Job Requirements for certain positions won't allow) - it actually motivates me to get in earlier, so I can get out earlier and be more productive - Location - Office culture and co-workers; I am a new grad in my first full-time role. Due to frequent acquistions, Airgas company culture evolves frequently as well. Long story short, we're all new and learn together. I don't feel intimidated, just welcomed - Employee Benefits; great vacation time, salary and tuition reimbursement... this is ideal for a young professional

    Cons

    - This is a large company with a corporate feel (not an issue for me, but I can see this won't be appealing for everyone) - With large companies, there is a lot of learning that goes with it. However, the Business Support Centers (BSCs) were recently put into place to streamline policies and general work flow - Some old school mentalities still exist in upper management, though I do see this changing with newly hired managers in multiple locations

    Advice to Management

    I would actually advise those looking to join this company; when using research tools such as Glassdoor be mindful that with a large company (15,000+) our team includes all different professionals in the gas industry. A truck driver's opinion of his time with Airgas will vary from those in Real Estate pockets. Basically, use good judgement and do your research! As for management, be mindful of the idea of changing times... I think we are seeing more favorability to a more liberal environment, but if you want to attract young talent, flexibility is attractive!

    Keep up the great work and continue to build on the amazing culture at the heart of the organization
