Considering a career as a truck driver? Work at Ferrellgas!
No one wants to be stuck in a job they dread. You’ve either been in this situation yourself, or you know someone close to you that dislikes the work they do on a daily basis. It’s not a fun experience. For anybody.
But, at Ferrellgas, we have nearly 4,000 dedicated employees nationwide who love what they do and love who they work with. No matter the job title, we’re truly a Ferrellgas family. And some of our most dedicated workers are those who deliver the propane – our drivers.
Perry, a Transport Driver based in Georgia, has been a key member of the Ferrellgas family for eight years, and he’s never dreaded heading into work each morning.
“That’s not a thought. They’ve been good to me,” Perry said. “It’s just the way you’ve been treated. I’m 59 (and I’ve) never had a company treat me as good as they have.
“I love what I do, and I love the people I work for.”
Ferrellgas provides employees such as Perry the essential functions and tools they need to springboard a successful career. For Perry, he believes the support of a great team and reliable equipment does this, and more, for him.
“It isn’t always about the money,” he said. “They’ve kept me in safe equipment, safe operations, and never put me in harm’s way. I believe that Ferrellgas wouldn’t put you out there in unsafe equipment. In my experience at Ferrellgas in the past eight years, they’ve been real great about that.”
And that’s just the basics. We go the extra mile for our employees by setting them up for bright futures, providing necessary benefits in which one would expect in a company that cares about its own people. We truly put our own first.
“This job right here I’ve felt more stable, as far as everything goes,” Perry said, “my retirement, my job security, my insurance. I don’t have to worry about any of it.”
In Perry’s first three years as a Ferrellgas employee, he served as an owner-operator. Since then, he’s navigated the roads of his territory and transported propane far and wide, building a meaningful career along the way.
“They’ve always kept me busy,” Perry said. “So, absolutely, if you’re looking for a job as a transport driver, (Ferrellgas) is at the top of my page. They have been outstanding.”
