My husband is a former employee of Amerigas in the south. This company is the worst place he has ever worked.
In the winter they work you like a dog and in the summer they cut your hours. So all that overtime money saved in the winter has to be spent in the summer to pay your bills. They just recently got a new computer system and can't get anything right now including the payroll. When you live paycheck to paycheck that just doesn't work being shorted several hours.
They have crappy equipment. The truck he drove didn't have a radio so he asked for one for about 3 months solid but never got one. But they often seem to have enough money to fly their manangers all over creation for meetings while being wined and dined. They have employees that work late without getting paid so they can get caught up so they don't get chewed a new the next day for their work not being finished.( HELLO LABOR BOARD!!!) They have customers on a daily basis running out of gas because the manager thinks they have a "method" of routing.
Obviously when you have customers running out of gas daily your "method" is NOT working!(Have you heard of logistics?)On several occasions he tried to use his vacation and the manager refused it so at the end of the year he had to cram 3 weeks of vacation in so he wouldn't loose it. And keep in mind these days were picked by the manager(thats ***). Last time I checked a vacation was something you were suppose to enjoy not something you just had to burn up.Amerigas used to be a company that people would stand in line to work for because of their benefits etc. Now the employees fight to get out of the revolving door.
For all you customers that are getting screwed I apologize but the employees are getting the same treatment as you.
Get a clue Amerigas, you are going down the ***!!! GO SUBURBAN!!!
