Pros
  • Great people as far as peers and the next level of management up (in 4 reviews)

  • The overtime hours, depending on the route, can be substantial and add a tidy sum to the paycheck (in 4 reviews)

Cons
  • 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 (in 3 reviews)

  • Work-life balance does not exist in this company (in 3 reviews)

    Pros

    Pros:
    1. FANTASTIC people/employees.
    2. Flat organization - there is no problem interfacing with those one, two, or three levels above you.
    3. National organization- opportunities coast-to-coast.
    4. Opportunity to work on interesting projects and suggest business strategies to your superiors.

    Cons

    Cons:
    It is true the propane industry is shrinking, although there are ample ways/other areas for growth- just look at what some competitors like NGL and FerrellGas are doing. AmeriGas will realize this soon enough and be the better for it. Yes, employees are being asked to work harder, but I am sure that is true at other public companies as well.

    Advice to Management

    I would make an effort to know as many people at the FSC as possible. They will see your leadership firsthand and the company will be the better for it.

    Pros

    AmeriGas offers an extremely supportive environment, encouraging you to grow within the company and find your own path. Office culture is fun. Salary they offer is generous and the employees are are great

    Cons

    There are no cons against AmeriGas at this time. The only problem is when you are employed as a contractor - you don't get the PTO benefits (or any time off) however, you do have the option to work remotely.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Company has many benefits. Best of all is PROFIT SHARING!!! This is the only company that I have ever worked for that offers this.

    Cons

    My opinion is that they understaff, which; makes the job harder than it should be. I delivered forklift cylinders. My state does not allow on-site fueling. So after deliveries were made we(the drivers) had to unload our trucks, refill the cylinders and reload the trucks. The work load was terribly distributed among drivers. They have cameras in the trucks(not at all locations).

    Advice to Management

    Open the door to the "Open Door Policy" even more. Remove customer growth off the drivers. They have enough to do. Get away from the fear of a Union. Unions are great for both company and worker. Create a base starting pay for drivers regardless of the type of driving.

    Pros

    They really try to keep up the morale of employees. Free pizza and hoagie day once a month and plenty of other small perks throughout the year. It's a good clean environment and most of my coworkers were pleasant.

    Cons

    Almost everyone starts as a temp and then can be offered a permanent position if they perform well. Bad thing about being a temp is some people are hesitant to teach you anything because they think you'll be leaving in a few months, which turns out to be true a lot. I enjoyed my time here and I learned a lot from those who were willing to teach.

    Advice to Management

    Create more permanent positions so people will want to stay.

    Healthcare benefits seem a little below average.
