Great place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It was a great place to work until the company downsized. If an opportunity to work with them again came up I would take it. Salary was ok, direct manager was great.

Poor work environment

A typical day at work would be very overwhelming. You are expected to lift heavier pails day in and day out. Support from management can be little to zero.

Pros

None

Cons

Lifting heavier pails

Friends

Work was successful, rewarding and fun.I was all in. Pre-Covid- the scale of work/family life balance shiftedbecoming an issue for me. I wish there was a stay interview. I would have stayed. There was no exit interview. I miss the job.

No incentive to exceed targets

No reviews. No appreciation if targets are exceeded. Pay is the same regardless of effort or lack of it. Lucky if you get mentorship from any of the large number of retiring personnel.

Nice place but bad pay.

Nice place to work at, how ever the wage could be better considering what is being asked for the position. Staff is nice and clients are some of the best ive had.

Think twice

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.

Cons

US was making decision for Canada

Bad managers

PPG as a company was great. I met a ton of great people and my coworkers were amazing. The main problem is the management. You have to suck up to certain managers in order to get anything and get anywhere. Management make fun of other employees and talk bad about them behind your back. If the management changes and the employees stay, the company would be great!
