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

Pros

An adventurous way to spend the winter months! If you have a CDL B license and HazMat, they'll provide training and ride-alongs to get you up to speed. Then you're on your own filing residential and commercial tanks and doing leak checks. The overtime hours, depending on the route, can be substantial and add a tidy sum to the paycheck. They can also be very physically draining. The trucks vary from old operable relics to nice new ones. As a new driver, you can guess which one you'll start with. Management is fair in dealing with employees, they provide the basic equipment (gloves, coveralls, safety glasses) and overall camaraderie is good.

Cons

An accident or property damage of any sort, regardless of whose fault it is or how trivial it may seem, will most likely land you in hot water. Being on call 24/7 for a week at a time goes with the territory. Delivering motor fuel and ACE cylinders is physically exhausting and may lead to repetitive motion injuries. Truck and pump noise may lead to hearing loss.

Advice to Management

Realize that drivers are busting their tails to get the job done in extreme and often dangerous conditions and environments. Be more responsive when they're in a fix and need help.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to learn new technologies because a lot of Techs are so busy and over worked.

    Cons

    Morale is horrible.
    Do not trust what you are being told.
    People are only out for themselves.
    Nobody is held accountable for their actions and a lot of finger pointing.
    They do not like people with opninions.
    No remote work.
    Very, very political.
    No appreciation you can never do enough.
    If you don't play the game your never going to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    As far as IT, hire managers that actually have a strong Technical understanding of their area. Unqualified and unprofessional managers and leads. Sr. Management should beware of false info and do some investigating on their own. Possibly speak to the engineers or analyst and not the leads and managers.

    Pros

    bc of the tremendous workload you will not get bored and have the ability to make a difference to the overall bottom-line on a daily basis. Some departmental employees do work well together although dissatisfied

    Cons

    First and foremost, management is totally in the dark and does not care about employee feedback in the slightest. If you speak up, you might as well pack your bags even if it is for the good of the company. There is no quality assurance or much feedback of your overall performance bc management does not value employees, pay needs to equate to industry standard and raises do not equal the standard yearly increases cost of living/inflation, very little seperation between work/life balance, overworked and dissatisfied employees, promises are made about work culture/and overall workload and they do not follow through

    Proceed with caution when considering a job offer with AG.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees to improve overall efficiencies, do not have the "everyone is replacable" mentality, make sure that this is some quality assurance in the overall accuracy of work to lessen back-end issues, improve overall communication from corporate to field so that everyone is on the same page, make your employees feel valuable instead of acting as if you are running a sweat shop
