Job Work/Life Balance
Tank Exchange Driver (Current Employee) – Richmond Hill, GA – January 8, 2019
Great company to work for, and one of the finest companies I've been with. Great benefits and I love how they invest their own money in you. I'd recommend this place to anybody who wants a job
Field Install Specialist (Current Employee) – Wichita, KS – December 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, PA – January 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
Pay and health care was decent, Kept trucks in good shape
Physical work, not valued as employees, too many hours
Service Technician (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 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.
Productive, fast pace in the winter. Do what we can in the summer to get ready for winter
Driver (Current Employee) – Alliance, OH – August 30, 2018
It's a good job. Benefits are good but I don't get a raise every yr but insurance goes up. I'm on call every 5th week so I'm use to being on call. I deliver propane to customers, paint tanks in the yard in the summer time or fix cylinders.
Over all i enjoyed working there but became time for something new
Driver/Service Technician (Former Employee) – Kingman, AZ – August 25, 2018
Learned all aspects of propane business Including installation of propane systems on residential commercial and agricultural accts there was a set start time each morning then you would work tell the job was completed .If you were on the gas delivery truck sometimes you work 12hrs a day. Sometimes the job would require out of town work which hotel and per diem was paid The hard parts came when it came to raises or advancement people were being hired making about as much as me company had an ESOP program which recently took a huge drop appox 60%
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..
Company vison needs to be followed by field employees and filtered down
District Manager (Former Employee) – Hendersonville, NC – September 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
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – August 20, 2018
Family retained that home down feeling of home town business. Many of the office workers were of the millennials generation, due to hours kept. 24-7 on call. Benefits were kept for those that were full/part time employees.
Delivery/Service (Current Employee) – Flemingsburg, KY – August 11, 2018
Great place, just wish pay was better , winter time is extremely busy, equipment is dated, need better trucks , new hires are paid better than existing employees, if they would keep up with the cost of living it would be better
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 10, 2019
Don't waste your time with this company too many bosses don't expect anything from this company just your paycheck no bonuaes all the employees including your supervisor talk about you behind your back. Dispatcher was a joke safety personal was a joke everyone wants to be the boss go with amerigas if u want to work in the propane industry
