    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Airgas full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits are good, overall most of the people are very friendly.

    Cons

    The credit and collections department is one big click; if you are not friends with certain people you will hate your job every day. Managers and supervisors like to micromanage and push you in front of the bus every chance they get. Other departments can have flexible schedules, but not the collector, no way would they allow that. If you take time off they make you feel bad that you are using your time. Mind you this is your time you get as part of your package. Be very cautious if you chose to work here, you might end u with serious health issues from stress.
