Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Florida – September 20, 2017
PPG continues to make diverse changes that will benefit them in the future. During my time with the Company to many quality people left for various reasons. I do believe that they have that figured out and are building a stable workplace, stable as one can be in today's workforce.

PPG, which is now called Axiall, is a Union environment where personal advancement is not based on job performance but rather seniority. Your job is always in jeopardy based on contract negotiations which the negotiating committee seemed ill-equipped to handle the corporate side of the table. You work in a dangerous environment with dangerous products.
Productive work with a staff that treated workers like family.

Be ready daily to honor the company by being on time ready to fulfill orders that stores across america depend on receiving. When you hear the feedback from stores about how impressed they were with the quality of the shipment and product it makes you proud to wear the uniform daily.
Clean warehouse updated new technology and great staff who belive in you.
Cant think of any. Honestly its a great workplace.
Very stable traditional blue chip company. Compensation tended to be lower than market, so had to leave the company for real career growth. Traditional corporate culture that was starting to become more progressive when I left the company
TOOL & DIE MAKER (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – August 7, 2017
Most part a good place to work and fairly stable. Enjoyed going to work years ago. You had the feeling the company valued each person but it is going through a culture change in the last few years and most employees don't feel that way now.
In general this is not a bad place to work. The opportunity for advancement in my division was not easy even with better than average reviews. Annual pay increases are minimal and only significant increase occur at time of promotion.

Throughout my 10 week internship I learned many things about the day to day activities and activities that go on in upper management for PPG Industries. Gained valuable knowledge of sales, auditing processes, dealing with customer complaints, and learning how to run a business. Was tasked to come up with a project during this internship. My topic was "How could I create a business plan to help increase our residential repaint sales in our market of 19 stores?" I created a well thought out plan that had to do with brand awareness, marketing, changing communication strategies internally and with our account managers, and focused mindsets on the customer from all levels of the company to name a few points that I hit on. All in all a great company and great experience.
