Administrative Assistant/Driver (Former Employee) – Beaumont, CA – July 18, 2018
I didn't like when we where short staffed and this happened a lot. We would have to do our shift and someone elses shift and do it all within our 8 hours. if we did not finish we would get yelled and told that we could not do any overtime. For being strapped onto a moving truck filled with a extremely explosive material the pay really was horrible and they said that we where getting hazard pay when you really were not.
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Demopolis, AL – July 16, 2018
Stressful working environment. No opportunities for associate workers to provide advice and support. Constant phone interaction with irate customers whom felt unfairly treated by Ferrell Gas. Short time given on phone with customer to satisfy dispute. Frustrating that customers needs were not handled properly.
I simply would not recommend Ferrellgas as an employer. PeopleSoft is a horrible software that leaves a tremendous amount of room for human error. And there were plenty of human errors made and lack of any type of consistency. No adequate, standardized training in place. CSS staff that is capable and proven as a quality employee should be promoted promptly and the hiring process could use much improvement. A desirable starting wage would draw a much more qualified pool of potential employees. I felt that the owner was out of touch and did not listen to those who truly know what changes would benefit the company and move it into the 21st century. Thank you for this opportunity.
Delivery Route Driver (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – July 2, 2018
Ok place to work. While I was there the company was doing a lot of downsizing. My manager left and the closest manager was an hour away. Equipment worked most of the time. Our busiest time was winter and that is when we had the most problems with our equipment.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Olive Branch, MS – June 24, 2018
3 person office and not enough work for us to stay busy. Supposed to be part time, was told could take what days I wanted. Grandson came in from NY, I asked to that a couple of days with him and was told I couldn't take off when I wanted to???
Senior Unix Engineer (Consultant) (Former Employee) – Liberty, MO – May 2, 2018
They cut people for the most idiotic reasons just to make a bottom line. They are "ok" if you just want a temporary position to make the bills, but I would not recommend expecting to retire from there. And their equipment is severely antiquated.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – May 2, 2018
I worked for Ferrell Gas 3 yrs they don't give raises or bonuses and management shows alot of favoritism with certain employees..if your looking for a secure job it's good but don't expect anything else. Also 10 months out of the year you only work 40hrs..
Propane Cylinder Delivery Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – April 9, 2018
Lift a lot of weight every day. Guys will not fully cover your route if you take a day off, leaving you to pick up the slack. Never got a raise. Lack of advancement in my case. Seen 12 people come in go in my 3 yrs there.
New employees are being hired at a higher rate. IWe haven’t had reliable trucks for a few years. Would start every day with a route. Nearly every day having more (keep Full) customers added to route. I believe this can be managed better. The routing covers areas more than once a week. This can cost more in mileage, fuel, and hours to get these customers taken care of.

Prospecting, permitting selling and retaining accounts. Propane and its competitive market and competing at a high level in that market. Managing multiple task both operations and sales.
