    Pros

    Great corporate culture. Benefits are a plus and free tanks are always an added bonus. Company takes care of its employees

    Cons

    Could use more holidays/paid vacation time. Ambiguity within the corporate structure tends to get a little confusing.

    Advice to Management

    The aggressive acquisition strategy seem like it should focus more on existing business.

    Pros

    you get 3 days off

    Cons

    pay is to low for the amount of work you do.

    Advice to Management

    stop taking away incentives like double time after 12 hours, pay more hourly

    Pros

    Family-like environment, approachable management team and good work-life balance

    Cons

    Fairly small company so hard to advance

    Very little concern about employees. Get injured and they don't care. Your a number, not a person.

    Pros

    Three days on, four off but schedule is inconsistent.

    Cons

    Money doesn't compensate back breaking work for 13 or 14 hours. Most tractors are older and run poorly. If you finish run in 12 hours your expected to call for more stops. Was injured and management was irritated and never asked how I was feeling. Stated "Im not making money while your out".

    Advice to Management

    Drivers have feelings and family too. We are the backbone to this company. Hire some helpers for the drivers. So far very discouraged by lack of support from manager, was injured and he was not concerned for well being, only when my return date was. I work as hard as I can every day and never thanked for effort. Praise sometimes goes a long way


  8. Ok company to work for but you'll end up having to deal with good ol boy atmosphere.

    Pros

    Good work out delivering propane grill tanks. Honest work.

    Cons

    No protection from upper management when dealing with bad customers. General public smoking near trucks filled with propane.

    Advice to Management

    It was a great company to work for until Ferrellgas took over the Blue Rhino operations. Now you're just a number. Try to remember the employees that went above and beyond. And shed the good ol boy mentality.

    Nice upper management - Not so nice direct staff.

    Pros

    Fair market salary and great benefits.

    Cons

    30 minute lunch (which is unheard of in Corporate America...Hello). Snotty direct staff members who train you. Direct senior staff members who brag all day about how much they do and how many e-mails they have....blah blah blah. Also unprofessional language ALL DAY! I have never in my career heard folks talk (curse) like this in an office environment.

    Advice to Management

    Have everyone in the department know how to do everything and not have a staff member delegate work. That should come from a Director or Supervisor not a person who has been there and saying "do this and do that'.


  10. Great company, but the parent company is pulling them down

    Pros

    The people at Blue Rhino were phenomenal. The atmosphere was great and the work/life balance was very positive. Managers don't micro-manage, they allow you to do your job as you see fit so long as your are accomplishing your goals. Compensation and benefits were both strong as well.

    Cons

    Ferrellgas (the parent company) has been struggling for years. The two companies used to operate separately but now the strings are all pulled by Ferrellgas and Blue Rhino is paying the price and losing quality people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard for your people, they appreciate it. Blue Rhino is a winner, hopefully Ferrellgas will get it turned around.

    Pros

    -company has a professional but casual atmosphere. -management cares about employees and takes the time to create a good employee/manager relationship -big supporter of United Way and does a lot of work with the community. -employees are generally great to be around. Company isn't so large that you feel disconnected from others in the office

    Cons

    - Winston Salem area is not too bad of a place to live. Probably not as excited for a younger person, but close enough to most anything.

    Advice to Management

    Very happy with management, president is great about connecting with employees and has great business knowledge. Continue to communicate with all levels of employees and be approachable.
