    Pros

    Climate controlled environment. Nothing else!

    Cons

    Management personality is unstable. Depending on forcast depended on how employees will be treated. Demand of productivity is ridiculous unless your a work horse.

    Advice to Management

    Hire all new supervisors for the cash application department. Ones that are fair to the whole group not just their favorites.

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

    Pros

    Steady job with benefits. You can get some OT if you want it and if you want to relocate there are opportunities for you as well

    Cons

    No supervisor can be trusted and they are back stabbing. Plant manager is horrible communication with the employees

    Advice to Management

    Walk thru the facility and ask about how things are doing and do something about it. Listening goes a long way

    I worked at Airgas full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I worked at Airgas full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    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!
