    Pros

    Airgas is a place that you can learn and grow into a promotion and higher salary by taking on more responsibility.

    Cons

    Starting off low in the organization will keep your salary low for too long.

    Advice to Management

    vet people better and make sure they can grow into a position and pay them for their value. Don't let a good employee get stolen by another company based on salary.

    I worked at Airgas (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A few nice people, on site deli. I can't think of a 20 per minimum about anything good here. Near slymans I guess.

    Cons

    Work changes at the minimnum of every month. Rules change almost every week, or whenever it is more convenient for the management. You get used to doing a process a certain way, it changes week after week after week, so you get it wrong and you're dinged for it, treated like an idiot because of it and spoken down to as if you are a child. People are quitting left and right 6 people in 7 months. Expected to do the job of collectors even though it's cash application with no pay increase. Mandatory overtime, with possibly only same day notice and when you can't you are told the business must come first. You have no life when you work here, you belong to Airgas. Family comes first! You're supposed to put a company first that doesn't care about you or listen when complaints go into HR repeatedly about the same person. For example having someone's hands being slapped together in a person's face... No joke there and HR swept it under the rug. So there's the respect you get, none! Unrealistic work load with unrealistic goals. You're not fast enough within 30 days, you are put on probation and eventually will get fired if you don't get faster at the unrealistic work load you get. Very sad.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to start paying attention. You can't sweep things under the rug forever. Eventually someone will notice the massive turn over rate in that department and there's only 2 "managers" in that department that causes misery which is what is driving good hard working people out the door. When will you people listen?

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

    Pros

    Good benefit package, safety oriented and understanding managers. There is a lot of possible overtime if you want it and pretty laid back job.

    Cons

    Poor pay and causes a quick turnover rate and a lot of overtime. Policies and the cameras can be hard to deal with especially if not rewarded with raises and bonuses.
