Filler to Driver (Current Employee) –  Morrisville, PAJune 4, 2019
They preach safety first...but that's only as long as it doesn't effect the profit margins they have practices in place that are not policy and if you violate these practices you are thrown under the bus

Never knew what your run was until you punched in.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Canton, OHAugust 26, 2018
Your dispatch was multiple stops and for 14 hours a day. Tractors have camaras with audio so you have no privacy. Vacation time was only granted on a Monday - Friday basis, which only the top 3 to 5 drivers held. All the rest of the drivers worked weekends and you would have to work no matter what. You work a rotation schedule which is usually a night shift. The drivers where the best to work with and very helpful.
Pros
Home to sleep
Cons
Not family friendly, micro-management

Praxair is a good company but they refuse to pay what the job is worth. They make promises of raises but always find reasons as to why no one get them, (Praxair Economy).
Pros
Good equipment
Cons
No raises or advancement opportunities.

Excellent Company and Wonderful People
Call on Demand Driver (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZFebruary 9, 2017
I had a great experience working with Praxair. I was a Call on Demand Driver, which meant I would be gone away from home for about a month and had 5-7 days of home time before leaving to go out again. This was an uncomfortable and stressful balance for my particular situation. The pay and benefits were amazing, and I learned so much from the other drivers. I am thankful for this experience and I'll never forget it.
Pros
Pay, Benefits, 401K, Pension, Co-Workers
Cons
Away from home, living out of hotel for weeks to months at a time

Good company to work for.
Driver (Current Employee) –  Idaho Falls, IDJanuary 22, 2017
They could really work on promoting from within their own company. Pay could be better for what they ask their employees to do.

Kiss your family goodbye
Driver (Former Employee) –  Slatersville, RIOctober 30, 2014
Low pay, long hours, hard work, and did I mention long hours. You will be required to work right up to your legal DOT limit. 12-14 hour days are the norm. Management is a complete joke with every possible task being put on the drivers. Mandatory weekends, because management completely makes a cluster of the work week. Layovers are a part of the job and you will be the low man in a union bond... Need I say more. I equate my 10 months there similar to a prison sentence.. 10 months of hard labor.
Pros
I absolutely can't think of 1
Cons
Forced overtime, forced weekend work, bottom man in a union bond, low pay, every day is a bad day, layovers, just dream up your worst driving experience and then multiply it by 10 and you have a typica Praxa

Bulk Driver (Former Employee) –  Mims, FLDecember 3, 2012
Job takes a lot of time out of your family life. It allows for you to have money to spend. Still a good job to have but it used to be a lot better though.
