    Messer inherited alot of problems from Linde, and it will take awhile to fix it all.

    AP is good, but you can be forced to team drive if you are low on the seniority board and if teams need to be ran out of that terminal.

    Air Liquide can't keep any drivers after the let Air Gas take over the transportation. But some of there drivers are saying that AL will be taking over all together soon.

    The Linde Praxair merger made them the largest cryo company in the world. So there could be some advantage to getting on as a driver there now.

    Matheson is the smallest private cryo company. And I don't hear about them to much. Other than drivers quiting to go make more $$$ with the other cryo companies.

    In my opinion in April of 2019 Air Products is the best. They don't have driver facing cameras like the rest of the companies.

    Good luck.
    If you get on just learn their system.
    Do the job the way they want it done and you'll find yourself with a 100K a year job that gets you home after each shift and allows for a life outside of driving.

    I think Chicago had issues years ago and the company removed the union.
    I believe that ruan currently
    does the work they used to do.
    I'd heard that they may be trying to put together a company workforce again.
    Probably not the same wage or benefits as company employees but couldn't say for sure, but I am sure nobody is working for 7 bones a week.
    Don't know if they hire thru the company's site or Ruan
