    I have been working at AmeriGas full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Have many great people working there

    Cons

    Sr. Management is only focused on money. High pricing. While SR. management continues to receive bonuses annually....large bonuses, employees go without, get minimal payraises, and have to reach unrealistic goals to get even a small bonus. Employees hours are cut during summer, but large bonuses continue to go to upper levels

    Advice to Management

    Without customers, we have no business. Price fairly. Without employees, we cannot service customers. Instead of giving upper levels huge bonuses, share the wealth that actually do the hard work and get the gas delivered.

    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.
