(back when AirGas Canada was bought out by AirGas USA, prior to AirGas Air Liquide) Guys were awesome to work for. Managed ourselves for three months after manager quit. The new manager which eventually took over the role was an awesome guy. Employees in crucial positions were never replaced once they left the company. Moral was low because of wage decrease. Actions of refusing to authorize purchasing of needed parts to maintain equipment and reluctance to hire people were suspect of head office attempting to ruin the company from within. After I left, the place I worked was quickly closed and my old job was outsourced, likely for reasons "hard times", but I know it was engineered as the guy making decisions admitted that he hated our line of business. Really sad to see they were sold off, but Air Liquide is a awesome company and means that there were likely improvements after I left. I miss working there as I really enjoyed the job as a fill tech. I would entertain giving these guys another try for employment but cannot recommend them as I am no longer familiar with their operations after the changeover of hands.
straight forward job, clear expectations.
Business gave up on itself, no reason to sink with the boat.
