Job is only good for getting CDL experience otherwise save your body and time.
Driver (Current Employee) – Rockford, IL – February 24, 2019
This job is pretty much meant for 20 somethings looking for experience. The company beats you up and expects you to be safe but quick. God forbid you may forget one of their 50 volume sets of rules, they will crucify you. You are very rarely if ever thanked for breaking your back daily, other than when Airgas buys donuts for monthly meetings to tell you where you need to do better and/or be safer. They have gains shares that you will almost never get because some department that has nothing to do with yours cant consistently hit their numbers or goals. You delivery dangerous gases and liquids in some of the worst conditions to some of the most difficult areas imaginable. If there is a nice dock for normal deliveries, your delivery spot will be on the other side of the building, where it's littered with any combination of pot holes, spider webs, wasps, grease, hoses, ice, rain, forklifts etc. Some deliveries will be by hand down stairs even though they say it's not done at Airgas. You will have to drag the cylinders through mud, grease, cobbled or broken walkways, up or down curbs, with overhead cranes and welders and such all around. Into a cubby hole area of hot filthy businesses. Some businesses will be a labyrinth others will be vast corridors. That's the majority not minority of delivery areas. Benefits are good but good luck if you need to use them. Pay is not equal to what is asked of you. I've seen many good drivers come and go during my time here at Airgas turn over is high for a reason.
