Pros

Constantly stress safety for customers and employees. Has fairly inexpensive health insurance, definitlely not paid in full. Is not real good at replacing major pieces of equipment because of the cost.

Cons

Major dissappointment with the company is how it compensates their workers. There seems to be a standardized wage increase of about 2.5 percent per year regardless of whether the company has done good or bad financially. They use the cover of a supposedly detailed annual review of your performance and everyone gets the same 2.3-2.5 percent incresee. It makes the whole review process a farce and for looks only. Managers are given the same runaround and the only way to get a real increase in income is to quit and work for someone else. Of course, there is a non-compete contract which makes it diffucult to work for another supplier under the suspicion that you will reveal "trade secrets" to your new employer. Everybody in the propane business works with pretty much the same margins off the pipeline and are lookinf for the same customers. There's not a lot of "trade secret" to reveal. It just seems a convenient way to keep an ex-employee from leaving because it will be difficult to find the same kind of work for the duration of the non-compete agreement (two years)
Last year, the company made record profits for it's investors, but the workers didn't even get a cost of living increase. The employees are strongly discouraged from considering unionizing. There appears to be a concerted effort to keep the employees isolated in order to lever them into accepting sub-standard wages even though working with hazardous materials. A union would not allow them to bludgeion individuals into accepting sub-coost of living increases. This is something that AmeriGas does not want to have to deal with.
And AmeriGas wonders why it has the employee turnover that it has in the working ranks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your people in the trenches a decent LIVING wage. If you did, you wouldn't have the employee turnover, would spend less on training, and would have a more loyal workforce. AmeriGas wants to be a "world class" operation. Until you realize the people on the ground are important and need to make a living too, this isn't going to happen. Keep on feeding your investors the big return and screw the ones out here making the money for them and it will eventually backfire on you.
