    I worked at Ferrellgas Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    started off good with decent training and motivation

    Cons

    The company has a long history of ebbing and flowing management employees. I worked there over 3 years and saw good managers get cut myself included because of budget concerns, things are usually good in the winter season when revenue is flowing, but cuts are swift if you location isn't making its numbers. Ferrellgas is usually the highest priced of all providers and customers usually walk when not treated nicely

    Advice to Management

    stop laying so many managers off, you know it is true. Try taking care of the people at the bottom and see how they will produce for you.

    Pros

    Esop, people I worked with

    Cons

    They don't care about their employees they use you and then toss you aside when they are done with you.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at what is happening in the field. You are losing customers at an alarming rate and it isn't because of local management, it's because in small town American customers want a local provider. Ferrellgas is no longer in that category.

    Loved the job, unfortunately was laid off with the balance of the Sales Division

    Pros

    Great pride of ownership from the employees. Teamwork abounds but unfortunately within either the sales or operations department, not both.

    Cons

    The company is managed quarter to quarter, and decisions are made without regard to personnel. The operations teams have ultimate control of the company.

    Advice to Management

    The sales division should have been allowed to continue building on the successful metrics that were shown in the last six months of FY11, and the first two weeks of FY12. If the dividend needs to be cut, cut it.

    It was a good job while in college and paid better over minimum wage!

    Former Employee - Materials Handler in Portland, OR

    Pros

    Staring pay was $10.00 p/h while minimum wage was around $8.00. Part time employees still get all bennefits including paid time off. Fairly easy work with little supervision. Family style work place.

    Cons

    Smelly, lots of repetitive work that can get boring. Lots of lifting and work in the elements, alot of time alone and no real praise for puttign in the extra effort it is just expected. Spent alot of time on superficial projects that didn't make much difference.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more feedback on work performance and spend more time making the work place better then making it look better.
