    I have been working at Airgas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent opportunity to increase pay over 2 years. Annual raises.

    Cons

    Nepotism. Poor management. Don't follow through with their supposed commitment to promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to an employee's face. Understand what's going on in the plant before you keep demanding unrealistic expectations from an understaffed crew.

    Pros

    Great health benefits, 8-5 m-f overtime not needed

    Cons

    Goals are similar to what they were 10 years ago even though the job is completely different than what it used to be. Management has no authority over their people, no one enforces anything, when and how they choose to "discipline" people is very inconsistent. The leaders aren't leaders. There is no encouragement or positivity. Everything is negative from the top down. Most of the work is put on the few people that actually do their job and know how to do it well. That includes managers. They are already busting their tails to get their own crap done but when someone else slacks, they have to help pick up the pieces because there are only a few that actually care enough about their jobs and actually have the competency to know how to fix it....

    Culture and environment is lowest of the low. There really isn't much to say about the culture. There really isn't much of one at all. In regards to the environment, It is toxic. The rumors, drama, and negativity is worse than a high school. The more people you talk to the lower your own morale will get. There is zero room for advancement unless you already know people on the outside and have it guaranteed to you.

    Advice to Management

    Reward and notice the ones that actually care about and appreciate their job or you'll lose those VERY FEW that are left. They aren't being noticed or appreciated now. At least not in any way that is remotely sincere. Hire people that actually WANT A Job not some kid that has no idea what they are doing that doesn't even want to have a job or career in anything related to this field. They'll be gone in two seconds. This job is simply a place holder for them!

    Pros

    The company does provide a lot of training and makes sure you are very knowledgeable about the items they are selling.

    Cons

    There is a lot of cold calling. A lot. Also, most of the older employees already have the major,lucrative accounts. They encourage you to stay on the phone with a potential customer just to meet your minutes goal even if it is not work related.

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO, leaving this place

    Cons

    Worst managers, work you like a dog, Multiple HR violations

    Advice to Management

    There is no leadership in management what so ever. It's not about your hardwork or being a team player you only get ahead if management wants you to. There is a lot of bribing that happens at the Tampa plant. The manager hires friends so he can have a one up on everyone and get what he wants out of them and play everyone like a puppet. Manager works 3 hours a day if that then leaves to go get drunk on company time and money. Management at this facility is a joke and nothing will ever be done about it. HR gets called on the regular about people and they just get a slap on the wrist. Why work for a company that doesn't respect you and just treats you like a slave with several empty promises. They always want more and more from you but will never give you anything back.
