Horrible place to work
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Manheim, PANovember 15, 2016
Overworked and under appreciated! I was a part-time Material Handiler and worked 50-60 hours a week easily every week and never had help. I'm talking I would come in at noon and not leave until 4 or 5 the following morning. Prepared to be overworked all week and weekends
Pros
Pay is decent
Cons
Everything basically

You work for Skynet
Delivery Representative (Former Employee) –  Bessemer, ALOctober 28, 2016
The route management system has turned the driver into a useful idiot behind the wheel. Customer satisfaction is no longer the goal. Making a good score on your delivery route is. Competent drivers get the longest routes and most complaints about overtime. If you recommend changes to benefit a customer (more cylinders or a better delivery pattern) and the computer disagrees, then you are wrong. Even if it is what the customer asked for.
Pros
cost plus 10% on propane for employees
Cons
A warm body in a seat

Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Godfrey, ILSeptember 24, 2016
Management expects one to get a lot done in your eight hour day; however, the manger has done this job before he made it to the position he is in now so he only expects of you what he knows can be accomplished. You will be expected to work in the weather so if it is cold or hot you will be out in the weather.
Pros
medical, dental, and optical healthcare. 401k, and profit sharing
Cons
long hours in the winter

Corporate mentality. Every decision is driven by the bottom line and shareholders. No loyalty to employees or customers whatsoever.

Worst place ever
CDL Driver (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCAugust 4, 2016
Management has no clue what they are doing. Under payed, over worked and be ready to get called out in the middle of the night and on weekends just for them to cut your hrs in the week. Dog eat dog world at Ferrell. And if the work gets to be to much don't say anything because kiss your butt good by if you do.

Not many

Terribly run company! No hours! Pay is not acceptable for work being done!
Driver (Former Employee) –  Chepachet, RIMay 18, 2016
This companies' upper management team will run this place into the ground eventually! They make poor decisions which in return lose customers and in return, lose drivers' pay! The operations manager at this location is the only positive that the company has! But his hands are tied by the upper management which trickles downhill to the drivers! If you want to be told NO overtime and you like a company that's super unorganized and routes customers totally inefficiently then come work here!
Pros
U get a paycheck
Cons
No overtime, (lucky to hit 40), poor upper management, not paid enough for what you do

Not What I Expected
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 15, 2016
When I first started working there it was good I got along with everyone but as time went I started to see why this job has a high turn over rate which I was even told by the Manager. This place will overwork you with no appreciation shown and the people that I worked with while I was there did not like being there and was looking for other employment. I learned how not to treat your workers and if an issue comes up between workers you deal with it in the manner it should be and not just blow it off like it isn't a big deal.
Pros
The pay was decent.
Cons
Mangement, Job Area, Compensation

General Manager (Former Employee) –  Bismarck, NDApril 7, 2016
Was a good place to work until new dispatch systems where put in place that almost bankrupted the company. I believe they have seen the light and went back to their prior operational model.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
Upper level management had a poor grasp of field operations

Bulk Driver (Former Employee) –  Springfield, ILApril 7, 2016
If you want to get into the business its a place where you are trained very well, I leaned a lot as far as DOT requirements, and went through some intense safety courses with the company that put on in house. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the management structure that seems too change very often.
Pros
Employees were very friendly
Cons
Customer service is really lacking

Field Tech (Current Employee) –  South TexasFebruary 21, 2016
Ferrellgas is a good company to work for. On the other hand Bridger Environmental is a whole different story. When it was Sable Environmental it was a great place to work for and management would notice all your hard work and effort to help the company. When it became Bridger Environmental new bosses came in trying to run the show when they didn't even know how a salt water disposal runs. If your looking into ferrellgas I suggest you give it a shot but I suggest you find something better than Bridger Environmental.
Pros
Great atmosphere and co-workers, Good Benifits
Cons
New Management is a joke!!!!

Absolutley Terrible
Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Springfield, ILFebruary 3, 2016
I am an Operations Manager.

Overworked 60-70 hours a week as salary and no overtime compensation.

Extremely stressed. So much red tape and corporate stuff to deal with.

Drivers and management are paid poorly and over worked. On call with no pay. Expected to work overtime whenever it is "mandated"

Corporate and upper management are terrible. I was told not to hire drivers when we needed them the most resulting in a massive customer loss and inability to deliver to customers as promised.

Bad company, do not apply. Go work for FS or Hicksgas.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
pay, hours, on call
