REGIONAL OPERATIONS COORDINATOR (Former Employee) –  Canada30 January 2019
sad place to work these days, no work life balance, no upper management respect. Too much work, not enough employees to carry out the work. Shareholders pockets are bottom line for this company.

Stay Away
Cylinder Processor (Former Employee) –  Canada19 January 2019
If you want to work for a company that could not care less about you as an individual than Praxair is for you.
No advancement opportunities and hard work goes unrecognized.
Favourite employees are treated like gods for doing the bare minimum and hard working, hungry employees are tossed aside like garbage.
They pay well enough, but the culture and morale around the company will make you regret even applying for a position.
Avoid this company if you ever want to feel good about yourself again.
Pros
They pay you

Incompétence accrue des gestionnaires
Chauffeur de camion (Current Employee) –  Saint-Hubert, QC13 December 2018
Si tu aiment te faire suivre sur la route par des superviseurs incompétents et te faire donner des suspensions et lettres disciplinaires, c’est la place. Attends toi à te faire gueuler par des clients parce que les pauvres clients manquent de produit continuellement à cause de l’incompétence accrue des gestionnaires. Ne tombe accidentellement jamais sur la glace, ça va être ta faute et tu vas recevoir une discipline sérieusement et te faire dire que tu devais regarder où tu mets les pieds. Équipements de travail qui date de la deuxième guerre mondiale pour se sauver de l’argent et ta santé et sécurité n’est aucunement respectée. Ne porte jamais une plainte aux ressources humaines, l’arrogant de petit lardon prendra jamais ta part. Le favoritisme est vraiment leurs points fort. Si tu ressembles à Harry Potter et tu est prêt à te faire tâter sans rien dire. Bon ben bonne chance..
Pros
Souper payé à 50 dollars pour techniciens seulement
Cons
Les gestionnaires aux quotient intellectuel très bas, plaintes des pauvres clients, abus des superviseurs, la liste est trop longue

Hsr-1
Delivery Driver & product installer. HSR (Current Employee) –  Milton, ON19 August 2018
One thing I learned in this company is to cover yourself. Everybody put responsibility on each other. For HSR work is pretty heavy. Though job security is there.
Pros
Good coworkers

Long hours, heavy physical work

Use to be a great place, understaffed
Driver/Delivery (Current Employee) –  Kitchener-Waterloo, ON26 May 2018
Praxair use to be a great company but over the years they have cut all perks and cut staff so much that its constantly too much for one person to do but you have to do it anyway. no one helps each other, its everyone for themselves. local management is really good, hands get tied by head office on how to run the branch. work is days monday to friday, start time is pretty flexible if you need it to be. Most people are good to get along with, but there is some that make working there as miserable as it can be, always complaining and not getting the work done, or undoing the work you did because they don't want you to make them look bad.
Pros
Monday to Friday days, pension, benefits
Cons
low pay, bad coworkers, overworked understaffed

Great company
Compressed & Cryogenic Gas Driver (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC4 March 2018
Theres lots to learn at first - different sizes, names, grades for of gas and cylinders - but it is a great company to work for. Well-organized, safety-minded, and they run well-maintained equipment. A large part of the job is done by forklift, and safe handling of cylinders is one of the harder parts about the job. Expect to work outdoors in all types of weather.

Employees treated poorly and some backstab to get leanway
Shop Foreman (Former Employee) –  St Laurent, QC19 January 2018
I was let go the day before I was completely unionized. The job I was hired for had a grumpy old man and his brother running the shop floor and litteraly did anything in his power to sabotage people. I had moved around and done numerous other jobs in the place yet still was thrown under the bus. This place is a joke and the management is a mess. The shop has very out-dated equipment and zero training.
Pros
Worked with some good people
Cons
Terrible Management, Poor Quality, No advancement.
