    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

    An adventurous way to spend the winter months! If you have a CDL B license and HazMat, they'll provide training and ride-alongs to get you up to speed. Then you're on your own filing residential and commercial tanks and doing leak checks. The overtime hours, depending on the route, can be substantial and add a tidy sum to the paycheck. They can also be very physically draining. The trucks vary from old operable relics to nice new ones. As a new driver, you can guess which one you'll start with. Management is fair in dealing with employees, they provide the basic equipment (gloves, coveralls, safety glasses) and overall camaraderie is good.

    Cons

    An accident or property damage of any sort, regardless of whose fault it is or how trivial it may seem, will most likely land you in hot water. Being on call 24/7 for a week at a time goes with the territory. Delivering motor fuel and ACE cylinders is physically exhausting and may lead to repetitive motion injuries. Truck and pump noise may lead to hearing loss.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that drivers are busting their tails to get the job done in extreme and often dangerous conditions and environments. Be more responsive when they're in a fix and need help.

    Pros

    There Are Plenty Of Opportunities To Work Your Way Up The ladder, But Eventually YOU Get To A Dead zone.

    Cons

    Some times it seems management will tell you what you want to hear, but never follow through. I have interviewed for different positions and was given bogus reasons why I did not get the job. I think too many friends of management get hired.

    Advice to Management

    I think some of the management need some more training on how to deal with conflict.
