    I have been working at Airgas full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - not a popular or well-known industry, so they tend to promote from within
    - plant jobs are fairly high paying for little skill required
    - no nights, no weekends in branches/plants
    - demand never really goes away, wide customer base, many of which are critical to infrastructure
    - lots of people have been in the business for a long time, so in theory, there should be a lot of upper-level positions available in the coming years

    Cons

    - like most companies, always trying to be lean. Often try not to replace someone if they move up or quit. Our office has gone from a high of ten people to only five full-time employees. Somehow we still never get a bonus though.
    - not very diverse at the branch/plant level - mostly older males
    - tends to be a little bit of a "boy's club" in that people get friends and family hired and move up based on who they know
    - bonuses are based on...well I am not sure what they are based on and they are infrequent and rarely consequential

    Advice to Management

    Running lean to some degree is fine, but burning people out is not good for business. Make bonuses more transparent and attainable. Be careful with how people are hired and promoted.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Airgas (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Very professional. The smoothest hiring process I've ever been through, phone screen followed by in person interview. Everyone was nice and honest which I appreciated. I was kept in the loop the entire process.
