Chemical Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA 18195 – October 14, 2018
Air Products was a good place to learn how to function and be professional in the business world I was fortunate to be enrolled in great customer service classes. Fellow employees were always helpful and fun to work with. I had a great manager that was supportive. Working independently was encouraged and I learned a lot.
EQUIPMENT ENGINEERING MANAGER (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – September 25, 2018
Air Products is a wonderful company to work for. In the 6 years I've been employed, it has always been a positive experience. The group I work with in particular is flexible, fun, and has always felt like a family. Everybody does their best to get the job done at the end of the day, but doesn't take themselves too seriously. Safety, Simplicity, Speed, and Self-confidence are the companies current creed. While the management has been fluid in the last few years because of a new CEO, as well as company divestments, everyone has kept Safety as the #1 drive. The other 3 are a work in progress, but the same could be said for any other company. The only downside I've seen is that if you didn't start as one of the Career development Professionals (CDP) program out of college, it can be hard to network and get your foot in the door for new positions. Full time hires have to work harder to get a new role in the company.
great culture, opportunities to travel or stay local, education reimbursement
Non-CDP hires need to work harder to network, Expensive coffee in the cafe
Manager (Former Employee) – usa – September 12, 2018
typical day at work could be 8hrs to 18hrs depending on breakdown of equipment. Hardest part of job getting help from higher ups when problems arise. Most enjoyable part of job was interacting with employees.
Mechanical Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Trexlertown, PA – September 11, 2018
I enjoyed working at Air Products up until the time my job was eliminated. The coworkers are great and the atmosphere is generally good. The problem there currently is new management that is cutting people for the sake of cuts, There is too much of a focus on the stock price and not enough on the work the employees actually do. I did enjoy my time while I was there and would definitely go back, xsince I suspect this is true of most corporations.
Flexible hours when needed and good people to work with.
Focus on corporate profits only and only 5 sick days per year
Constantly growing learning fun and challenging place to work
Technician level 2 winding Hall (Former Employee) – Port Manatee, FL – September 1, 2018
Was a wonderful place to work enjoyed everybody in the shop as well as every other department management on the shop floor was wonderful upper management so called brass was very poor told employees they be safe during layoffs things like that they would have heads up very next day Mass layoff with no warning and very little compensation too bad was a great place to work was a place I planned on retiring from after relocating for that job
Pay was great very good chance for advancing and earning more
Upper management was unappreciative, cut people with no warning, and no chance to set up employment after their release
IT Analyst (Former Employee) – Trexlertown, PA – August 30, 2018
I worked with a great group of people which makes all the difference in a corporate office. We all worked together, helped each other through out the days and weeks and frequently had our own little parties to go over major achievements and success's.
Great pay, management needs help,lots of down time

SITE SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Reidsville, NC – August 20, 2018
In order to reach financial goals, Air Products has restructured in recent years. In many cases this has been a boon to the company, and has indeed improved overall profitability. However, in the most recent FY, staffing in some locations has become so thin that the workloads are becoming overwhelming.
Poor training structure, staffing reduced to a challenging level
Chemical Operator (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – August 20, 2018
If you fit the mold and was a friend of someone in management outside of work then you could advance, if not then you were treated like a second class citizen, and always reminded of how easy it is to fire you.
Production Operator (Former Employee) – Vernon, CA – August 13, 2018
I worked there for 23 years and a manger comes in that dose not like me and I 'am out the door very bad for me and my family I came to work every day did my job never called in sick were all my PPE and worked overtime when needed
Sustainability Program Specialist (Current Employee) – Trexlertown, PA – August 5, 2018
The people at Air Products are incredible and care about each other. Meanwhile the upper management makes decisions that do not seem to factor in employees. They seemingly only care about financial results and what investors/customers care about.
