work well as team
Service & Delivery Administrator (Current Employee), Guelph, OntarioMarch 29, 2013
Pros: good co-workers
Cons: no job security
It is a great group of people I work with, we are all willing to help each other. The management has different rules for different people, example flexability of start & finish time, not using all people for special projects even if somebody else is more suited, hardest part of job is staying busy, most enjoyable part is variety of work

This is where you want to be!
Human Resources Advisor (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONJanuary 16, 2013
Wonderful place to work! Great team of people!

Superior Propane is Canada's only national provider of portable fuels, equipment, and service delivered locally to customers in more communities than any other propane company.

January 30, 2013

A blatant, self serving attempt to promote one of the worst employers in the country. Superior Propane's business model is outdated and the management team is dysfunctional and unprofessional. There is widespread anger and frustration across the organization, exacerbated by an incompetent and powerless HR department. Employee turnover is very high, with the most talented people quitting.

Stay clear - it's a nightmare!
Sales Executive (Former Employee), Guelph, ONNovember 15, 2012
Pros: it's a paycheque - but only if you're desperate
Cons: incompetent management, toxic work environment, terrible employee morale
This was the worst career experience of my life. The company is totally dysfunctional. There is no leadership, incompetent management and a shocking lack of professionalism amongst current employees. A lot of desperate people hanging on to dead end jobs in a dying company. Any good, qualified employees have left and joined smaller, regional competitors who are easily winning the business away. Antiquated IT systems, dysfunctional org structure, and antagonistic attitudes between departments. Customers are leaving in droves, and for good reason. The product is overpriced, no value-add provided by sales/customer service and there is absolutely no concern for customer satisfaction.

Delivery Coordinator
Delivery Coordinator - Lloydminster - Oil Patch (Former Employee), Guelph, ONJune 13, 2012
Pros: could work from home
Cons: no winter vacation
working for Superior was interesting - the drivers were always great to deal with and they were always a big help. The team that I worked with became like a family. The dispatching unfortunately was extremely easy and not much to do on a daily basis but the drivers more than made up for everything and finding challenges made the day go smoother
