    I have been working at AmeriGas as a contractor

    Pros

    Plenty of work available, including overtime

    Cons

    You WILL get hurt. They WILL fire you.
    They only hire "seasonal" drivers. If you take a job as a seasonal you will get minimal training and then tossed into a truck to throw bottles. They job primarily involves delivering propane grill bottles to Home Depots at night. Right away they will expect you to deliver hundreds of bottles per night. This is EXTREMELY physically demanding. Most people are not used to this amount of physical labor and there is no time to get used to it or work your way up to it. You must lift bottles from above your head and place them on the ground well below your feet (while standing on a step on the side of the truck). You will have to do it over and over and you WILL get hurt.
    If you report your injury or are forced to go on light duty THEY WILL FIRE YOU!
    Make no mistake about it. this is a churn and burn job. They use you up and then toss you out the door. Do yourself a favor and DONT DO IT! The injuries (many permanent) are not worth the money.

    Pros

    A lot of great people at district offices. Most are long-term employees with excellent industry knowledge. They tend to be team players who have come onboard through acquisitions. Benefits are pretty good. If you are lucky enough to have a good manager, this can be a good opportunity.

    Cons

    Very minimal increases given during annual performance reviews. Middle management says they are accountable for many things, however district managers are almost always blamed and terminated instead. Long-term employees do not receive the respect that they have earned.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what employees in the field are saying. Although they may not have an important title or a degree, they are the backbone of the company. Customers develop relationships with these employees, not with executives. Change the environment which you've created that causes employees to work in a constant state of fear that they may be terminated. This is distracting and takes focus away from safety. Develop an bonus program for hourly employees that is not based primarily on a system of measuring growth which is not equitable. Stop depleting your most valuable resource: employees with years of industry experience who are terminated without thought or any consideration given to how much time they have dedicated to you.
