- 2.0Mar 5, 2017Administrative SpecialistFormer Employee, more than 3 yearsLong Island City, NY
You get to work with great people and some a very dedicated to their job. Learned new skills in reference to shipping, logistic management, and the refrigerant business. 401K and insurance benefits are good.
No room for career advancement; a lot of the employees at the company have been working there for over 15 years at the same position. Unless someone retires or leaves, there is not much advancing in any department. There is also a lack of communication between employees and upper management. When there is a huge issue, upper management seems to just tell employees they need "get it done." There is no explanation of why and how to resolve the task.4

Company is forward thinking and aggressive. They will promote from within, up to a certain point. Medical and retirement benefits are good. Good pay and much paid overtime available. Your job is stable and you will be have the support of management with all issues you have.
You'll be working long hours. Most positions are 12 hour shifts, rotating into nights and weekends depending on quarterly schedule. Logistics center is 24/7 so some people will work 7pm-7am. There is a terrible attitude around the office, with an ever constant fear of being fired prevalent. Fortunately, the fear is unfounded because only one person was fired during my multi-year tenure at Airgas Logistics Center. But the attitude exists because of poor organizational behavior. Any business student will tell you that attitudes in a workplace either work their way from the bottom up, or from the top down. At Airgas, the constant fear of being fired is definitely from the top-down. A few years ago the company switched to a new routing software and made the horrible decision to go with a company who'd never designed such software before. This leads to more frustration, increase in workforce (and the related stress on management that comes with it). And, the job is increasingly more difficult. You'll be asked to work more and more and more and more. I stress that, because you will feel like you never have any time off. Sure, you'll be handsomely paid for it, but it doesn't really matter if you can't strike a positive work/life balance. Vacation time allotted is very low. Only 80 hours vacation per year for the first 5 years. Note that vacation is in hours and not weeks, because with 12 hour shifts, that only adds up to 6 days off per year.9

Plenty of overtime and new equipment. I got $5 in raises in less than 4 years there. The benefits are pretty good and cheap.
They overwork most of you to the bone. Lots of long and stressful days if you let it get to you. Their drivers should be paid a few more dollars an hour for much they rely on you to be the "face of Airgas". There are a lot of rules to follow that can make your job difficult to do at times and restrict your movement.

Very good work environment, stable and comfortable work place. Overall company doing good and have good employee benefits
Health insurance cost is massive

Co-workers are great, pay is okay and you do get a small raise each year. Good benefits that include dental and eye.
High upper management is out of touch with the workers. Takes forever to get a truck fixed, lots of times not enough trucks for all the drivers.Airgas Response8y

Pay and health benefits were good.
I started working at Airgas right before the holidays and as soon as I started it was extremely negative from the beginning. Your raises and bonuses are decided on a group level rather than individual and there were so many employees there that simply did not do their job. The issue is there are no rewards for doing your job and no actions taken against you for not doing your job. Just negative meeting after meeting from management threatening our bonuses, raises and tempting me to suggest to them to fire the bad employees everytime they said "what can we do to reached our goals?" With the mixing of the insane micromanagement that solved nothing, constantly telling us that Airgas might get rid of our department as a whole, I just lost all motivation to work there. I never argued with management personally about anything but my co workers did and I observed how both parties handled it and it just turned me off quickly, everyday.3
- 3.0Jul 10, 2022Total Access SpecialistCurrent Employee, more than 8 yearsDuluth, GA
Global company with wide recognition. Tuition reimbursement. Good life and health benefits. Starting a hybrid WFH model. Some autonomy with dealing with clients
Bad leads of companies no longer in business, dead owners and more. Favoritism. Unrealistic goals. Unsustainable goals. Stick and carrot management approach.. everthing is considered a privilege to be taken away like WFH. Manager focus of outdate methods of success liks dial and minutes. Arbitary methods of succeess. They refuse to accept email as a legitimate source of business growth. Reviews of performance are given monthly and if you don't make it this month.. they tack that in to the next month instead of giving you a fresh start. No growth opportunities. You have to wait for someone to die. Low pay.3

The benefits are pretty good and ost employees stay for several years.
Some of the employees can be gossips, but I suppose that is not anything unique to this office.
