Toxic Environment
Commercial Driver (Current Employee) –  Hinton, AB28 June 2018
One individual in workplace responsible for several employees leaving branch. Consistent and daily outbursts of extreme anger over situations that don't warrant those behaviors and are typically easily resolved. Both customers and coworkers treated with disrespect with some frequency. Behaviors tolerated by management despite loss of qualified and competent employees over five year period.
Pros
Good compensation package, vehicles maintained well
Cons
inappropriate and extremely abusive behavior in workplace tolerated by management

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

liked most staff, everyone was upfront and they had a great inside staff. management was pushy and tried to manipulate staff in my location.
many people moved on or left the facility.

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.

SENIOR ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 April 2017
I worked in Engineering and Construction, and while it was very demanding, my colleagues were some of the best you could ever ask for. My boss was amazing. The salary was decent, the benefits were pretty good. I would go back tomorrow if I had the same group of people!

Bad place to work
No work for them ever again (Former Employee) –  Grande prairie ab21 February 2017
Terrible management in grande prairie and the one that comes from Edmonton. Spineless support exspecially if you are hired on through manpower as they do not have to follow Canadian labour laws. Do not pay bills owed to private contracts when work was done with in house approval but not edmontons.
Pros
Not bad if they need you.
Cons
Spineless backing for employees

Daily challenged and with a lot of future, but a really bad present management for those under the Plant Manager.
Process Engineer Specialist (Current Employee) –  Dorval, QC1 September 2016
This is not to be confused with Praxair (Gas division), a highly standardized corporation. This is its Industrial and Aeronautical coating division Praxair Surface technologies. It has the same core values and mission, bu not the same management, guideline, and leadership root.

The new Plant manager is driving the company to a brighter future, this company is growing again.
Pros
Great place to grow profesionally
Cons
Low management orientation - Leadership is low
