Up management was a joke. didn't have a clue what was happening in our part of the country. Worked there for 5 1/2 years got a 72 cent raise. Wage was not where it needed to be in North Dakota. Was promised raises but nothing ever happened. Insurance was not worth having. Most of my co worker we're awesome. I wasted about 5 years of my life there. Don't expect to much if you get a job at airgas.

Airgas has an excellent safety culture. They provide proper training for every job task, they hold weekly stand down safety meetings, plus daily tailgate meetings. Airgas has a divers customer base, not only to they provide services for the Oil and Gas Industry they also provide services to the Medical, Dental, and Food Industries.
With its divers customer base Airgas provides a strong foundation of job security.
The pay is low and raises come as yearly adjustments with the cost of living.
Airgas is the sort of place that will cradle even the most under qualified and help them to find a long, and outstanding career. The pay is great, the benefits are wonderful, and there are loads and loads of other great vacation and sick options. If you don't have a plan and need a job that will support you, definitely come to Airgas.

It’s a good place to work but it is hard to receive salary increases When you move to a new department it is usually a lateral move which makes it hard to advance but they do pay for advancement through education.
Airgas allows employees to work independently. I have learned new AP applications such as SAP and Open text. There is tension between management which prohibits individual growth, The option for flex time has been very beneficial.The most difficult part of the job is the favoritism displayed by the management of my department.
Flex time, independent work, learning new processes
Office Manager / Procurement Manager (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – May 6, 2018
I was the office manager and I had 2 direct reports. I was constantly busy. I was the p-card administrator and the expense procurement person. There was always something going on and I always was respected and felt important in all my roles with the company. I was at Airgas for over 10 years and miss it a lot!
Great work enviroment, great people, good money, great benefits

The managers do not manage and do not stand up for their employees, they are the filter for Corporate. They look for reasons to get rid of certain people if you don't agree with their opinion. Managers have zero loyalty to their departments. And worse of all, there are obvious favortisms and if you make that one mad, you will be forced out. Saw it first hand in my 10 years with the company.
Poor management, poor direction, lack of leadership
