Skill Developing and Productive Work Enviornment
Production Aluminum Bonding Operator (Current Employee), Greensboro, NCJuly 19, 2015
Pros: Recognition Program, Skill Development
Cons: No Advancement Opportunities
Since starting with PPG Industries 13 years ago I've handled a number of responsibilities. My typical workday consists of weighing and measuring raw materials, loading raw materials into the mixer according to the batch formula specifications, discharging the batch and transporting it to the extruder to disburse the color in a heating and cooling system. Working in this environment has developed my time management skills. I have learned from my management team the importance of preparation through a Lean program they have implemented for more successful productivity. I have also learned the importance of developing relationships with my co-workers to obtain and positive and fun work atmosphere; which I consider to be the most enjoyable part of the job.

STORE ASSOCIATE/ DELIVERY DRIVER (Current Employee), Citrus Heights Ca.July 10, 2015
Pros: Great customers service from all employees.
Cons: No benefits for part time employees. I need a full time position
My mornings start early which works out just fine for me being a morning person, I come in i greet my co-workers with a smile in my voice which i think it makes for a great start to any day. I prioritize me work load and my day begins. i love working with my co-workers and getting the job done in a timely manner because for me time management is a key part in getting my job done timely and safely with safety being first. There is no hard part to my job, for me just getting the job done by all means is the most important part.The most enjoyable part of job is customer satisfaction.

MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN (Current Employee), Allison Park, PAJuly 2, 2015
Cons: They keep their employees as outside contractors
I enjoy working at PPG they play a great role throughout the Pittsburgh area. They are extremely dedicated to their charitable activities and contributions. Although I don't mind working for them as an outside contractor, I would like the opportunity to actually be a full time PPG employee, they seem to hire most of their employees on this basis. It is difficult to fully appreciate your position when you are not confident that you have job security.

Quality Inspector (Former Employee), Montgomery, ALJune 25, 2015
Pros: I had a job
Cons: Too many early days
A typical day at work for me started every morning about 6:30am, we would a safety meeting to discuss safety issues or concerns about the day before. I would then go to my work area and prepare my work area so that I may begin working. My job was to inspect the recliner brackets for defects. I would make sure there was no weld splatters, high welds, low welds, weld porosities, etc. I would take a 15 minute break at about 8, I would use that time to use the restroom or get something to drink if I needed to. I would take a lunch break about 10:30am and it was 45 minutes. After lunch I would work on and complete the rest of my work by 2:15pm so that I may have time to clean my work area thoroughly before getting off at 2:45pm.

I have learned how the thoroughly observe and check materials for defects while working for PPG. The management staff that was over me was very unorganized and didn't know much about the job as I did. My co-workers was ok but the management tried to turn us against one another to save their jobs. The hardest part of my job was not getting the hours I would have like to have gotten. The most enjoyable part of the job was to interact with people of different ethnicities while completing my daily tasks that was required of me.
