    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.

    Pros

    Absolutely, positively, no doubt, NONE!

    Cons

    Starting from the north division president down to their district managers. These people lead by intimidation and I can promise you this is the "good old boys club". I feel terrible for what management calls "the help". They are called employees! They work each day wondering if they will feed their families that night. The majority of employees are scared. So scared that they are bullied into stabbing each other in the back. Shame on you management. You are a perfect example for what companies should NOT do in order to reach their fullest and greatest potential. Change is long overdue! Start with your regional president and work your way down.
    Potier.... WAKE UP! Take a look at your management because former CEO lost touch.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at your families before you walk out of your homes. Your an employee as well. An employee at will. Bottle line, treat "the help" like human beings.

    Pros

    Airgas' regional leadership in the West was talented and capable of returning excellent results.

    Cons

    The divisional leadership structure in the West was largely absent. When a divisional leader chose to meddle in the regional affairs, more often than not there was no value added and more harm came of the interaction than good. Worse, the divisional HR team was combative and chose to "lead" by intimidation.

    Advice to Management

    Install a strong divisional president who lives and works in the area and replace the divisional HR team.

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

    Pros

    None, they've broken everyone's trust and morale with their greedy management and poor definition of success. It's unfortunate what has happened to this company.

    Cons

    So called "leadership" at its worst. Workplace bullying is a common theme, and it comes from the top down and spreads like a cancer amongst the employees. Ruthless and cruel doesn't begin to characterize the current "leadership". Clean house and bring in real leaders, not puppets and yes men.

    Advice to Management

    Employees understand this is a business and we're here to make money. But cutting staff to the bone in some areas while keeping favorites in other locations - at what point will you be satisfied with your overstuffed wallets and inflated egos? When safety risks become a factor? When the workmen's comp skyrockets? When unemployment costs go through the ceiling? Maybe after you've alienated every customer and every employee that has been loyal to you? Yes, business is about the numbers but it's also about treating your employees and your customers with respect and dignity.

    "Leadership" is running this company into the ground, yet years from now - after they've destroyed their own cash cow, they'll still make excuses for their shoddy management. Countless incidents of abuse of authority. Shame on you!

    I worked at Airgas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are none for this department.

    Cons

    The Cash Application department is in a continual state of flux. Job descriptions/duties are constantly changing. Training is non-existent but you’re still expected to hit your “numbers”. If you’re not hitting your numbers you’re put on a performance improvement plan which basically is "pass or you're fired". Keep in mind, your job changes every time the wind blows. Unlike Disney World, this is the Unhappiest place on earth. If you apply to either the cash application or collection dept I feel sorry for you. I could go on but it’s just something you have experience to believe Work/Life balance is good in other departments but not this one. OT is mandatory and is called that day or with one day advanced warning.

    Advice to Management

    None. You are rockin' it!
