The staff at praxair are very approachable when you have a question they will try their best to answer it.its also a great work environment.
And they really strive to make you feel like youre one of the team.
This is a fast paced environment where u have to train yourself on over 90% of the job. Management and decisions are made out of Edmonton or the USA which leads to no support or idea how individual locations and branches are ran. There are no job descriptions or training manuals on any position in this company. The culture is not ideal and is not relevant to innovation or the current market. Overall just disorganized and unsatisfactory as an employer.
The hardest parts of the job:
No work/life balance (too much overtime)
Some clients can be living in harsh conditions
Best parts of the job:
Ususally work unsupervised
Good co-worker relations
Excellent money (when working overtime)
Tips from some clients

Accountable for sales growth, operating profit by securing long term customers. Maintain a list of target accounts.

Great company benefit plan, decent work area, to much of a mix in operations, personnel and management interference. Moral throughout the location was poor with only peer friendliness and cooperation. Pay structure was very appropriate. Workload and workable hours were comfortable, weekends off as a rule if required to do a road trip company vehicle and reasonable meal expenses were covered. All necessary safety and or educational/required certification was company supplied. Annual and semi-annual "Safety" Meetings involved all associated sites and involved a "Breakfast Meeting" at a local Hotel Conference Room, however the agenda was the same with the same script and finger pointing of course applied by respective managers/departments whom of course, are infallible-godly!! Overall workplace is tolerable.

Good place to work, but with most big companies hard to get recognized for hard work/ethic. Minimal advancement for blue collar workers, good shifts/pay, clean work. Can be dangerous if you're not focused on tasks at hand.
Please have some respect for yourself before you think of applying, they only care about the bottom line not the employees or their safety.
No advancement opportunities - you will be expected to take on a heavy workload with no recognition especially if someone leaves and without extra pay. It is a very sad place to work, way better opportunities out there.
Management at the Paris location is not where it needs to be. Coworkers are great, however those working under management are not treated fairly or with respect. Could certainly see the company location being more productive with a change in management, as things do not get done as efficiently as they can.
Working with a great bunch of people over the course of my 32 years I learned there is nothing better then making sure our customers were happy with the experience they had with our services and doing nothing short making sure this happened
