Company was more interested in getting the sales. The manager plays favorites, and is very forgetfull, rate of pay doesnt reflect experience. Alot of stupid things go on think twice. Manager takes credit for all improvements to store she always says her store.
Pros
None
Cons
Not much to do, heavy lifting, Never orders enough product to sell, favourtism.

Good place to work, friendly workplace environment. The job is much easy so just need to follow SOP. The company does not provide any benefits and does not have much opportunity to grow

entreprise avec de très bonnes conditions de travail, gestion très centralisée tant au niveau corporatif que local.

Entreprise avec une gestion très politique, genre: ce n'est pas ce que tu connais mais qui tu connais.

It was a pleasure working for PPG. The workplace culture was excellent and the overall staff was very helpful. The typical work day was very fast paced, which made you become organized quickly. The most enjoyable thing about the job was the learning experience and also the people that I worked with.

The best way to get a full-time job with PPG is to be related to someone that works there. This company offers little room for growth and doesn't care about its employees. Executives fly across North America in a private company jet while the company cuts the employee workforce.

Try your luck with NB Coatings or Axalta instead.

I worked at a retail Dulux paints store. It was great under Akzonobel. PPG gutted the company of most of what made it a good place to work. Decent part-time job, fun coworkers, faceless upper management.

If you're looking for temp work and don't mind the awful smell of chemicals till you find something else, then you'll do okay here.

Work isn't great, but fellow workers are fun to work & talk with.
Pros
Achievements rewarded with small prizes, Fun co-workers.
Cons
Monotonous & unappealing work, health hazards from long term work, minimal pay and nonexistasnt communication between departments.

This company moves fast and it keeps you agile. There is tons of room for creativity, empowerment and ownership. Like any large company, things come down to profitability and sustainability and those without good business acumen, will struggle. All this being said, people are appreciated and recognized.

There is great internal competition and that keeps us constantly pushing for better. I'm extremely happy here.
Pros
Autonomy, Opportunity to lead, Excellent customers and Amazing staff.
Cons
Lingering AkzoNobel mentality slows us down at times.
