Our Guiding Principles get to the heart of our company culture. It’s not a set of rules. It’s a reflection of who we are as Airgas associates.

  • We believe that safety must always come first.
  • We drive decision-making authority as close to the customer as possible.
  • We give managers autonomy and hold them accountable for customer satisfaction and operational and financial performance.
  • We work closely with our customers to anticipate their needs and exceed their expectations.
  • We insist on uncompromising integrity in everything we do.
  • We believe that all of our associates should be treated with respect and dignity.
  • We value differing points of view and seek to foster an environment where everyone feels safe to express those views.
  • We encourage individual initiative but always come together as a team.
  • We provide opportunities for personal and professional growth.
  • We confront problems head on and look for solutions, not excuses.

Airgas customers know they can count on our products. And Airgas employees and the communities they serve know they can count on us to make safety and giving back top priorities.

When it comes to our people, safety comes first. Airgas has the largest hazmat emergency response organization in the U.S. specifically trained to deal with compressed gases, with more than 25 teams nationwide. Throughout the year, Airgas Emergency Response Organization (AERO) team members drill with community firefighters to prep them to deal with incidents involving gases and cylinders. 

Each day, we know that the greatest impact we make is seen in the local communities where we work. We are always looking for a way to give back, making significant contributions to the communities we serve every day. Have ideas for how we can give back to make an even bigger impact? Join the Airgas team and let’s start a conversation.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Airgas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    401K, hourly with paid weekly, paid for lunch, tuition reimbursement, paid vacation, and one hour for lunch.

    Cons

    This company does not pay very well. I've been working here for over a decade with exemplary yearly reviews (5 of 5 stars in all categories) and with a yearly cost of living raise I still make under $40,000. There is also no room for growth to management.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice for the management to pay their employees what they are worth. When you are underpaid you feel like you are of no value to the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Airgas (Dallas, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Met with regional manager, HR manager, and VP of sales. Very friendly and personable people got to know me and my personal life a little bit before digging into the meat of the interview.
