District Manager/Sales (Current Employee) – Danville, IL – August 18, 2017
Now we are truely lead by the numbers. I have been apart of building a team that has been more than productive only to live, daily, in fear that I am going to have to cut them in order to make a bonus. Good people, terribly managed.
Warehouse Operations and Materials Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 9, 2017
poorly organize / not enough man power. raises aren't worth the work . wish they would listen more to the staff on how to push the work out . I've worked there for over 10 years with little to no grow in the company smh.
Easy job to pick up with ok Benefits
Need more help/Man power. Pay sucks and not enough resources when needed
This company will screw you over as often as they can
Operator/ MECHANIC (Former Employee) – Shreveport, LA – May 5, 2017
Seriously.... The management have no clue what an operators job entails. Therefore you will constantly have someone telling you how you should do your job, that has no clue how you should do it. Also the pay is horrible for the oilfield work you do for 28 days straight. There is no opportunity to move up!!! If you get hired as an operator , thats the top of the ladder for you... Do not work for airgas!!!! Trust me, I left and went to a real oilfield nitrogen company.
Driver (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – May 2, 2017
You can be fired for forgetting to completely cone off your truck under every circumstance. Management doesn't care as much if customers run out of product, just don't forget your cones and to wheel chock the right side of the truck. They will drive around and spy on you to see if you're doing that. They will hid behind trees and buildings and take pictures, to see if you forget one cone. If this sounds unrealistic, just ask any Airgas driver anywhere. I'm not a disgruntled employee. I just want to make sure that people know the truth before they apply for employment.
Route Driver (Current Employee) – Rockford, IL – April 27, 2017
It's a strange place to work .. the hours aren't bad . But they arent honest about the work you'll do.. they want you to be safe at all times , but then ask you to break there safety rules .. they say things like " there a really good customer and spend alot of money with us so just deal with it " .. there is no job security at all .. and don't bother trying to advance you can put in for a job and not even get an interview with your own boss.. it's a joke ..
No lunch breaks, no respect for your work, or as a person.
Production Operator (Former Employee) – Houma, LA – April 27, 2017
I have a feeling that my experience was unique to the plant I worked at, but they didn't value safe work practices, and the manager was all about looking safe while getting as much work done as possible.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – April 20, 2017
Lots of training but once that was done I feel that they put me in a position that I could not thrive in. Branch level there is a lot of butting of heads that makes me not want to be there. Overall not a bad place to work but maybe just in the wrong position
Flexible work schedule, loads of resources, good training
Distribution Manager (Current Employee) – Renton, WA – April 9, 2017
Extremely important job delivering gas products that improve, save and enhance life. Very detail oriented and a dedicated work ethic is required. Very physical job moving cylinders. Other divisions do not coordinate well with each other resulting in individual distriution plants having to scramble to provide customers with the required products on time and in the proper quantities.
Satisfying work with things that prolong and save lives (medical gasses)
Upper management makes decisions without lower level manager input.
Senior Recruiter (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – April 6, 2017
This has been the best experience working for such a large company with a small feel. The culture is amazing and the comp and benefits are exactly what I was looking for. I am so happy with the opportunity NCN has given me and look forward to growing and evolving here. If you are looking for a career, this is the place!
QC Lab Technician (Former Employee) – La Porte, TX – April 4, 2017
Work in the lab is fun and exciting. There are about 15 people in the QC Lab. We run two to three GC instruments each day. It is really satisfying when you complete and approve your product as ready to ship.
You sure will be posting cash, but majority of the job is contacting customers regarding their account. Could've sworn the job posting said cash application processor. So if you're looking to JUST post cash, keep it moving. If you want to learn collections, get treated like garbage unless you are part of a clique, deal with extremely petty knit picking, deal with negativity and being treated like you're in grade school again, mandatory overtime, including Saturdays, especially at month end (be lucky to get a day notice) massive micromanaging and low moral, then welcome to Airgas! Highest turn over rate I have ever seen in one department. Within an extremely short amount of time, several people have quit their jobs in the cash app department. They don't care how miserable the people are, they are all just numbers to them.
Onsite work out facility, onsite deli, close to 480, close to tons of restaurants
Low moral, managers that lead by fear, condescending attitudes from mamagement, massive, micromanagement, highschool cliques, extreme pettiness, performing job functions that you didnt apply for, personal life does not matter
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Tooele, UT – March 22, 2017
Airgas is a decent company to work for overall. The division I was in was a new start up with a brand new plant manager. It was very difficult due to very poor communication regarding expectations and having the specific job duties explained or trained properly.
