4x10 hour work week. Wed-Sat winter, Tues-Fri summer. Plus a 6-8 person on-call rotation depending on the season. Put your personal life on hold during the winter months especially weekends and holidays when on-call. You will get called out multiple times for anything. Be prepared to be woken up at 2 a.m. after working your shift and getting an earful from a customer demanding you get to their house ASAP because they ran out of gas. If your on-call during a snowstorm and get multiple calls, you will be pressured into going out and putting your life at risk driving a truck with 2800 gallons of propane on dangerous roads. And if you crash the truck because you were pressured by the customer and manager to make that emergency delivery, guess what it’s YOUR fault driver, YOU shouldn’t of been on the road.

Worst lp company management in the industry.Corporate management only concerned with keeping stockholders $$$ coming in. Raises price of propane to "inflate" earnings to satisfy those stockholders with complete disregard for customer loyalty.CSC (Customer Service Center) management is pressured by Corporate Management to meet goals that can only be met by screwing to customer AND employees.Corporate and CSC mangers will deflate and inflate numbers to substantiate decisions on not giving out raises to employees,break promises and lie.
Not a friendly or productive atmosphere to work in.My CSC manager was a backstabber,lying,decietfull unorganized,disruptive talk behind your back person.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A JOB OR A GAS COMPANY!!!
