    Hard company to work with! Management is poor at it's best. Training is not done to a good standard or level.

    I worked at Ferrellgas Partners part-time (more than 3 years)


    Meet new people (customers and some fellow employees)


    Compensation, perks & personal growth are not there. Regional managers are more worried about the main office then those working for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Stop worrying about lining your pockets and start worrying and taking care of employees. Nothing says We don't care about you more then seeing the huge amount that those at the top get all while those at the bottom are told that there is no money for new trucks or equipment.

    2 When you at the top make a decision for the company and the direction it will head and policies that will effect the company as a whole, and those ideas and policies cause a failure then take the blame instead of passing it on down tho the drivers! Case in point: pricing policies were made in 2011 that cause the loss of customer, then the next fall the CEO sends out his lovely letter and states how it is the drivers responsibility to fix the loss of customer and get them back. You broke it you fix it!

    3. Most personal in the local offices have zero idea what is involved in a delivery. They should all do a ride along at least once a year or two. Maybe then they won't call drivers when the roads have 4 fresh inches of snow on them and ask why the driver is running behind and then in the same breath say keep it safe. I understand it takes money to run a company, but it doesn't take greed. Most drivers are over loaded on the number of stops for a 8 hour day, you need more quality over quantity. Over loading drivers also stops interaction with customer, the very people that you rely on and want the drivers to keep happy even when you are the reason for them being upset.

    4. Not all drivers are created equal! So don't compare a newer driver to one that has been doing it for 20+ years or those that just have more experience. Not every person has the same skill set. That driver that has been there for a long time and delivering in the same area, will naturally know the roads and people, were a newer driver is still learning them.

    5. Training is not telling some one to read something and then take a test and then after they pass the test telling them OK you a level 2 or 3. Training needs to consist of reading the book on each task and then some hands on until the person is good at it. Train to task, standards and quality, NOT to time and convenience!

    6. Just because a person is a driver (the lowest postion in the company from what it seems) doesn't mean that they don't have great ideas that would make the company better. Listen to them and learn, use some of those ideas to make the company better.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ferrellgas Partners in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews. 1st interview with office manager, 2nd with faciity supervisor and office manager. Told I would be informed one way or the other, but of course, that did not happen.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked to "quickly fill out" application before 2nd interview, with very detailed past work history, given approx 20 minutes to do so. Then grilled on past work history based on handwritten application even though they had my resume right in front of them.
      Manager was very casual, but nerve-wracking, just the same.
