    Potential to make good money does exist. Not many more. Lots of good hard working people to with. Most are willing to do things for each other.

    Advice to Management

    Show some commitment to your people.

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

    Pros

    Steady industry, decent benefits, M-F work week. Paid vacations and holidays.

    Cons

    Enormous company with so many small branches, there seems to be a disconnect. Lower wages than I'm used to making. Because no one at the branch level really knows who upper management is, they are always the ones that are "blamed" when we are short product, don't receive wage increases, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Bring all of your people together, somehow, someway. Be inclusive of the troops on the ground level that are face to face with customers everyday.

    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.

    Pros

    Good place to get started in your career. Pays just enough to keep you around.

    Cons

    They only care about the bottom line. Communication is horrible from department to department. The customers are getting the short end of the stick everyday due to poor communication and drivers always walking away from their job.

    Advice to Management

    There really is nothing you can say to them. Its a fear driven company and they just get rid of you.

    Pros

    Work hours are good. Home every night without much overtime most of the time. People are fantastic just hard working people that give their all in a physically demanding job.

    Cons

    Things vary too much by region and division to the point where no one knows what everyone else is doing. There is no knowledge share, in fact collaboration is highly discouraged outside your region.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging. Allow high performers to perform without holding them back due to your own insecurities.
