    I worked at Suburban Propane full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, mostly friendly people who are always willing to help. Amazing training for all areas of employment. Employee referral program, tuition reimbursement, free online education.

    Cons

    It is a national company so all final decisions are made by someone you'll probably never meet. It makes exceeding the customer's expectations extremely difficult especially in regards to price.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure any potential managers have at least some knowledge of the industry and proven leadership ability.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Suburban Propane in January 2016.

    Interview

    Phone Screen, Phone Interview, Face to Face Interview. I read the last 10K and went through all of their website pages. Ran over the scheduled time by 45 minutes and thought everything was going well. I found out later that they were hiring an internal candidate.
