    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.

    Pros

    Management invests in developing employees and allows employees to try different jobs in different departments. Managers will give you a chance to learn new skills.

    Cons

    Expectations are sometimes unrealistic, and managers sometimes aren't ready for management positions. Company some times puts too much faith in its ability to develop employees and hires people who are unqualified.

    Advice to Management

    Management should take care to put only employees who are prepared to manage in management positions.

    Pros

    Great experience and freedom to make decisions

    Cons

    HR makes it difficult to remove people who don't want to progress the location. Also, emphasis is put on safety, but not the money to get it done

    Advice to Management

    Review and remove the road blocks that hinder progress. These items would be the constant reports and assignments that don't contribute to the goal of safety and production

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

    Pros

    Sales quotas they set were lowest I have ever experienced. Great product training program from the vendors themselves. They gave us lots of samples and lunch everyday. Fun environment, themed days, brought in shaved ice truck during a heatwave!

    Cons

    Can't really think of anything negative to say. But Glassdoor requires at least 20 words in this section. I think I just hit that minimum.
