Great People, but too old school and top heavy
Cost Accountant (Current Employee), Multiple OfficesJuly 23, 2014
Pros: great coworkers/company culture, opportunity to advance, frequent relocation
Cons: micro managed, top heavy, lack of concern for employee
PPG does a great job of hiring people with an easy going personality. So far I've met very few people who are difficult to work with. If you want to move around (selling point for a recent grad) PPG moves people all over, and their relocation package is solid.

The downside, upper management is always asking for feedback, but never follow up once they – more... get it. – less

very busy job
Warehouseman/Forklift Operator/retired (Former Employee), Circleville, OHJune 26, 2014
Pros: we had a summer activities that was paid for
Cons: hard work and alot of heavy lifting
I worked nonstop except for breaks. I learned you are a team and must work together as one. If you were asked by management to do something you went ahead without compliant and did the job.
The hardest part was trying to do the job completely in the time
allotted. The most enjoyable was working with your fellow
employees that you admired.

Friendly place to work
Intern (Former Employee), Batavia, ILJune 25, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of either sorting out pallets of recalled paint, running the a filtration system for paint manufacture and assist employees on the assembly line. Occasionally, meetings would take place and I would have to set up chairs for these meetings.

The most enjoyable part of this job were the coworkers. They were very friendly – more... and made for a more enjoyable work day. – less

Transition from Akzo Nobel to PPG was pretty smooth
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Strongsville, OHMay 24, 2014
Was working for Akzo Nobel when PPG acquired our Architectural Coatings business and moved it to their HQ in Pittsburgh, PA. Since only there one year it is difficult to answer this question other than to say, under the circumstances they made it a fair place to work. A typical day at work would have been to train the personnel from PA that were going – more... to be needing to learn our systems, etc.in order to do the job. Which was also the hardest part of the job. – less
