Good company with job security
Field Install Specialist (Current Employee) –  Wichita, KSDecember 27, 2018
This is a great company to work for if you are looking for a stable long term career. The work environment is good with great coworkers. Management is very understanding will work with you if you have obligations outside of work. Overall a good place to work if you can handle working in the elements in good and inclement weather. Opportunity to grow and move forward.

Good job if you are just passing through, would not atay long term
Bulk / cylinder driver (Former Employee) –  Neville Island, PAJanuary 14, 2019
Worked at Ferrell for almost 5 years, very physical work if you are on cylinders and throwing 300 tanks per day. no advancement. seem to go through alot of oms and if u get a bad one look out. Pay was good though Pittsburgh guys are at least in the lower 20s per hour 22 min which was better than most service units . Can't please management at times as they just move you around how ever they want and you will do what's in your handheld or else. 60 hours a week isn't enough for them in the winter. They will bend and break DOT laws to fit their needs. You are just a body in a seat, that's all they care about. Ferrell made a bad investment and all the employees suffered for it. Especially those guys who were supposed to retire. They really got a bad deal because they depended on there esop in which Ferrell touted as key to your retirement. Then they stripped employees of at least half of it.You are not valued as employees here, there were only a few oms that valued there guys. Would not stay long term unless you want to be crippled by retirement
Pros
Pay and health care was decent, Kept trucks in good shape
Cons
Physical work, not valued as employees, too many hours

Service Technician (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAOctober 12, 2018
No advancement, no raises to match inflation. Work hours are great. On call once a month for 7 days (required) different rates of pay for completing the same job. Managers hold employees back from advancing.

Company vison needs to be followed by field employees and filtered down
District Manager (Former Employee) –  Hendersonville, NCSeptember 18, 2018
Poor upper management leads to high turn over in the field. The company vison is not followed or in line with what is followed in field operations. Employees are left with the uncertainty of always having a job or not

Gas company - family owned
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Overland Park, KSAugust 20, 2018

Temp status.
