1. Raises are given but they are performance based. 2. Helget pays for uniforms unless they are not returned when leaving the company. 3. Health benefits with multiple plans are available and Helget pays a portion of the premiums to reduce the cost to employees. 4. Helget has a strong maintenance program in place. Most of the fleet is new but not all of the fleet. The Helget fleet has passed multiple DOT inspections which would not happen if they were not road worthy. 5. Owner Operators supply their own equipment. Helget supplies all equipment and trucks. 6. Every driver is provided a company cellphone. Deliveries are scheduled/routed by a computer not by drivers. 7. Helget does not make you pay their insurance deductible. 8. Cylinders are stacked in a manner approved by OSHA for safety. Helget does not leave single cylinders standing isolated as this does not comply with safe cylinder handling. 9. Employees are called at home (outside of business hours) if they are scheduled to be on call for emergency deliveries. 10. Employees are treated with respect. 11. Honesty and Integrity are core values at Helget. 12. Helget's employee turnover is well below industry averages based on similar positions.

You left out a few things-dental is advertised as a benefit but they dont pay a dime. Most people just get health insurance on their own or just dont have any. Pay drivers SALARY-- sometimes after you get back they have you go back out to make a del. ( no overtime) and tell you make sure you charge customer the same day del. charge $$$ and you get nota $$$$. I had steel belts showing on my left front tire, had me get one new tire----then after the right tire was showing steel belts a week later got the other one change on my own time sad but true. This is with a truck that was carrying maybe 40 or so large cylinders along with 700 lb. liquid containers behind the driver seat. I had a co- worker that had broken floor boards in his truck and drove around with a piece of cardboard over it - I wouldnt believe it if I didnt see it for myself. Take a job here only at your last resort. For the other positive comments from former person Im sure it was from Helget himself or his wife , nobody could stomach writing that about this company.

You must be an operation manager trying to make the company look good. Who are you kidding, definitely not the workers. Just ask the workers there and you will get a totally different answer!!!!!
