Current Employee - District Manager in Charlottesville, VA
Current Employee - District Manager in Charlottesville, VA

I have been working at AmeriGas full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Have many great people working there

Cons

Sr. Management is only focused on money. High pricing. While SR. management continues to receive bonuses annually....large bonuses, employees go without, get minimal payraises, and have to reach unrealistic goals to get even a small bonus. Employees hours are cut during summer, but large bonuses continue to go to upper levels

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Without customers, we have no business. Price fairly. Without employees, we cannot service customers. Instead of giving upper levels huge bonuses, share the wealth that actually do the hard work and get the gas delivered.

    Former Employee - Bulk Route Delivery Driver in Fort Collins, CO

    I worked at AmeriGas full-time (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at AmeriGas

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to learn new technologies because a lot of Techs are so busy and over worked.

    Cons

    Morale is horrible.
    Do not trust what you are being told.
    People are only out for themselves.
    Nobody is held accountable for their actions and a lot of finger pointing.
    They do not like people with opninions.
    No remote work.
    Very, very political.
    No appreciation you can never do enough.
    If you don't play the game your never going to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As far as IT, hire managers that actually have a strong Technical understanding of their area. Unqualified and unprofessional managers and leads. Sr. Management should beware of false info and do some investigating on their own. Possibly speak to the engineers or analyst and not the leads and managers.
