horrible management and unfair expectations.
Depot Manager (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTSeptember 24, 2017
The management of this company require you to put your job first. before you family, before your kids. before your church. The company is first. and if you ever needed a day off for anything you were strongly frowned upon. I was many times required to discipline employees at my bosses orders for employees trying to take vacations to visit relatives that were in other countries and would require more than a couple weeks time. and were even threatened that their job would be taken away if they were gone more than the time allowed. no matter how long of advanced notice they were given. I understand that business needs are important. but for someone that has not been back to their home country for a decade and now they have a job and can afford to go visit their parents and grandparents, but couldn't go because of fear of losing their job. That just isn't right.
Pros
paid vacations, Paid holidays.
Cons
Heathcare. management

Good Pay, Bad Management, No loyalty or integrity
Depot Supervisor (Former Employee) –  TexasSeptember 19, 2017
Nuco2 became a terrible place to work after Praxair acquired them.
The Texas District is the worst. They moved in a new District manager in 2014 and it went downhill fast after that. And is still headed that way. There was no loyalty or integrity for long time employees who helped build this business and ran a tight ship. The Director of operations East is the worst! No integrity at all. I was told by him that I made too much money to hold that position. He stated I would have to take a position where I traveled all the time or be terminated. Needless to say I had no choice but to take the position.
The salary I made at the time was 11 Years worth of raises. Company's don't give you that many raises unless you are doing a great job in the position you've held for many years.Speaking of integrity, the person that took the title I held had the title I was shown to be promoted to. So did that person who had only been with the company a couple of years get demoted?

This was a great company! I just hate to see the hard work myself and many others did to build up this company go to waste.
Pros
good pay
Cons
Management and loyalty

Logistics Analyst (Former Employee) –  Stuart, FLAugust 31, 2017
I learned a lot during my time at NuCO2. The managers and personnel were always accommodating to challenging me to achieve my career goals. Several opportunities were provided to increase my knowledge in supply chain, logistics, and overall operation of the company.

Always wanting more out of you
Driver supervisor/Tech (Current Employee) –  ColumbiaAugust 26, 2017
Started out to be good company until Praxair bought them out and now seems like they are trying to run them into the ground. They have to many people telling you what you need to do instead of leaving you alone and letting you do your job.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Long hours, had to carry phone 24/7 for dispatch to call

Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Stuart, FLJuly 11, 2017
Very good job once you know what you're doing. Very large company and opportunities to move up. Dispatch supervisors/managers are very unprofessional show an extreme amount of favoritism to certain people, but if you go to work don't speak with anyone but your drivers and customers the job is awesome

Used to be fun
Depot Manager (Current Employee) –  Stuart, FLJune 9, 2017
Cutting positions and adding work load to salary employees which is leading to people leaving and a shortage of workers which leads to stressful environment. Manager is an egotistical one man show. Likes to bark orders but offers no solutions to get job done. Steer clear until he's gone. Used to be fun. Now everyone dreads coming to work.

Bulk Driver (Former Employee) –  Attleboro, MASeptember 24, 2016
Company policy changes to fit them weekly. No real commitment to employees. They want people to believe that they are employee friendly. Dispatchers are not local so they are rude and try to push you to make themselves look good. Company headquarters is located in a small town in Florida, they have no understanding of driving and working in cities. No room for advancement. Unachievable bonuses. Very small pay raises.
Pros
boot allowances
Cons
working there!

Just awful! -Call Center Area (Dispatch)
Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Stuart, FLSeptember 24, 2016
Hands down, the worst job I have ever had. They use a "temp to hire" strategy, and hold the promise of being hired over workers like a piece of food, most wait times for hire exceed 8 months. Training is not professional and inadequate. People literally cry here. This position has an unfriendly, bullying/condescending call center environment that starts from the top. The manager bullies the supervisors into bullying the dispatchers. Employees and temps alike stay afraid as apposed to fulfilled/enthusiastic.The portion of work is always far more than you can do in a shift. If you're hired, you will have to save pennies to afford the benefits. -Do yourself a favor. Just laugh and walk the other way!!!!
F-
Pros
Break room is ok. Scenery nice out back if you can get a break.
Cons
No time for breaks. High pressure. Bullying atmosphere, almost no proper training.

Depot Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TN 38132May 2, 2016
The average day was always challenging and rewarding. Upper management allowed me full responsibility to make changes and manage the local work force. The Memphis facility became a stellar operation due to the fact that I overcame many obstacles and was supported by upper management.

Loved working there.
Pros
Job security
Cons
Long work days, sometimes seven days a week.
