Management had their favorites that they would advance the rest of us would get excuses. They keep you at what they call flex which is considered part time but they wanted you to work 40 hours every week. It was a way they could get around providing insurance.
Fun job meeting customers
Not easy to advance they like to keep you at flex position
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Manheim, PA – November 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
Delivery Representative (Former Employee) – Bessemer, AL – October 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.

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.
medical, dental, and optical healthcare. 401k, and profit sharing
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.
Terribly run company! No hours! Pay is not acceptable for work being done!

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!
U get a paycheck
No overtime, (lucky to hit 40), poor upper management, not paid enough for what you do
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – May 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.
Bulk Driver (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – April 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.

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.
