Produtive and serious work place
Lead Mulco Operator (Current Employee), Temple, TXNovember 16, 2014
There are days that the labor is really easy and there are times that the machines are running poorly. My partner and I on the line have to sign off the paper work to make sure that we are packaging the correct tubes, lids and product. The hardest part of the job is working in the summer because it gets really hot inside the warehouse and during the – more... winter it's just as bad as the weather outside. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting off of work for me but to be honest working with someone that has a sense of humor. – less

Introduction to Career Life
QC - Lab Technician (Former Employee), WisconsinNovember 10, 2014
Company seems to have its heart in the right place. However, many of us were hired on as temporary workers and given no benefits to speak of. On top of that I spoke with a few people who worked there who had been let go only to be hired back on at less pay and no benefits.

While I don't think this defines the company it certainly wasn't a selling point – more... for me.

On a positive note it was a nice industrial lab experience for myself and the starting pay was up to my standard. – less

A great place to work for several years
Creel Tender, machine operator, inspector packer, (Former Employee), Shelby, NCOctober 28, 2014
Pros: great benefits, company bowling, softball and banquets.
Cons: itchy fiberglass
I started out working three different shifts. Working the three different shifts was a plus. A typical day was working to get your production which was not bad at all.
I learned to work well with others and I learned several different job while at PPG.
The management team was great at the beginning but there are always going to be some that have to – more... change things.
I only had a few problems from some of my co-workers and they were in-laws.
The hardest part of the job was trying to keeping the fiberglass strands running continuously when there were different binder type tested on the fiberglass.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when everyone did their part of the job, production was met and everyone left the job satisfied. – less

Not a bad job
Territory Manager (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZOctober 22, 2014
Good company overall to work for. Benefits are very good. Profit sharing/401 is very good as well. I enjoyed the job for the length that I was employed by ICI/Akzo Nobel/PPG Inc. However they are the only company I have ever worked for (or even heard of) that refused to pay unused vacation time at the time of separation.

Little advancement but interesting projects
Manager, Small Order Department (Former Employee), Springdale, PaOctober 20, 2014
PPG was a fun place to work with exciting project but an older workforce with very little salary increases or options for advancement. They are aiming to be a coatings company in the paint race to the bottom.

Good place to work while passing through
Inside sales (Current Employee), Somewhere, USAOctober 13, 2014
Pros: good people
Cons: lousy quality of life, benefits and managerial support.
The position itself is good with great co-workers.

Little to no room for advancement beyond store manager.

Your day starts before 7am and ends sometime after 5pm with little or no breaks.

Management makes stores stay open on holidays while taking the days off. (Memorial day,4th of July, labor day, day after thanksgiving, etc...)

My favorite part – more... is helping customers, educating them on products and seeing them through their projects.

The hardest part is wading through upper management droppings to help customer. – less
