This is not a good company
Health Care Practitioner (Former Employee), Regina, SkDecember 16, 2013
Pros: i had a great relationship with my clients
Cons: hostile environment, non existant managers
This company cuts people for no reason with no warning. We were told there would be no more cuts this year, and two months later, they cut my job. They acquired me from another company and didn't like my pay scale, here today gone tomorrow. They don't care if you do a great job and take good care of people. Management is all about money!. They preach – more... Integrity but they don't show any. – less

Driver (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJuly 8, 2013
Pros: a great bunch of drivers, the mechanics are great.
Cons: management changes rules to make them selves look good.
Worked at Praxair for 16.5 years had one incident and according to there rules were suppose to be allowed 2 , I had an incident and the people like Transportation manager for Edmonton and western Canada did nothing but cover there own back sides. the Driver supervisor who is suppose to be there for the drivers ran to Winnipeg MB as the National Vice – more... President of Praxair Canada was on the War path because of all the incidents involving other drivers i was used as a wiping post. Every one who was suppose to help me ran for the hills. They change rules to suit them selves like smoking in the trucks, grounds for instant dismissal nope not in Edmonton the manager buries his head in the sand, like driver supervisor also. Also mangement swept things under the carpet to suit them selves. Like i said use to be a great place to work not now as a driver your a number – less

Does Not Care About Employees
Truck Driver Class B (Former Employee), Columbus, OHAugust 1, 2014
Pros: gimme a minute, nope, nothing
Cons: management are heartless and oblivious to concerns
After 35 years with this company, they decided to close our plant in Columbus and move nearly 3 hours away. They left us all hanging for a year until they finally gave us a date when they were closing. If not for the union, we would have gotten no decent severance. 3 years till retirement and now I am looking for another job. They worked us on mandatory – more... overtime for nearly two years before deciding to move. After I left, my blood pressure returned to normal. I don not recommend this company to anyone. – less

Truck Driver/Filler (Current Employee), South Bend, INJuly 4, 2014
Pros: free uniforms and boot allowance and benefits
Cons: have to re-apply every year for health insurance and blood work as well
Praxair is a very large welding supply company who pays well and has good benefits but I don't like the hours and the management doesn't communicate very well with the employees. Work from 5:30 a.m. until route is finish and really with the winter months it is very physical to move cylinders in ice and snow. I enjoy and get along very well with my co-workers
