    I worked at Ferrellgas Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company was a good place to work in San Diego at one time.

    Cons

    The female manager is and has been a flat out a dishonest person. Where their is smoke their is fire. She lie's about everything and has got something against men! Even lived with a driver that worked for her at Ferrellgas. She can put on the nice polly anna smile, she is always hiding some thing that benefits her.

    Advice to Management

    Watch her, Investigate her practices!! Trades overtime pay for time off that we never get! Good People have all left because of her.

    I worked at Ferrellgas Partners full-time

    Pros

    Customer Service Specialists not in the main office work completely independently and rely 100% on self motivation

    Cons

    Hands off management takes all the credit for the good results and hands off all bad results. No opportunity for advancement unless living in "hub city".

    Advice to Management

    More training in the beginning not on automatic modules. More frequent reviews with lower raises to give more incentive and appreciation.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits and good pay.

    Cons

    Employees rotate on-call responsibilities weekly, this hinder planning events outside of work when the company is short employers within a service location. I mention this because I have shared on-call between only two employees many times throughout my time with the company.

    Pros

    Ferrellgas has given me opportunities I wouldn't have had elsewhere. The educational advancements, training, support, encouragement, career advancement and wonderful fellow coworkers make my job extremely enjoyable. The benefits are affordable and easy to use (medical, dental, vision, disability, etc.). The retirement benefits are exciting with a company ESOP (employee stock ownership plan) and employer matching for 401k. The leadership team has the company going in direction the employees can support.

    Cons

    Hard to communicate to all the employees due to the company being nationwide and spread out throughout the United States.

    Advice to Management

    Keep open the good lines of communication on how Ferrellgas is doing and where we are going.

    I worked at Ferrellgas Partners (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overtime in summer months period

    Cons

    Management gets bonuses meanwhile the hard worker living check to check. Get rid of the esop and give it as bonuses every quarter so everyone gets regardless of length of service. Good at adjusting my time and taking away hours I worked. Ferrellgas be having BBQ dinners every month while the blue rhino side don't stop treating us like a red headed step child company. Pay your workers better. Thank your workers since you get bonuses off their hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new management get rid of the old and teach them that they are only as good as their delivery drivers.

    I worked at Ferrellgas Partners full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. That's all

    Cons

    You are a paper pusher there. In the summer time all you will do is make outbound calls to try and regain customers that we have loss due to the high prices they charge. I had a full time dock and the managers couldn't stand that my customers loved me and would ask how my kids were doing. Which is what ended up getting me fired. I think its rude to pretty much kick a customer out after paying but they seen it differently. There is way to many managers in a little area.

    Advice to Management

    If your employee is getting the work done everyday but also building a great foundation with returning customers then don't worry. The rules for one should be the same across the border. If no jean are allowed then that means no jeans!
