Corrupt company
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee), Reading, PAMarch 14, 2015
Pros: 30 minute break i guess is the only positive
Cons: lies lies and more lies
Breaking your back while constantly be fed the lie that you will be moved to a full time position, Being asked to work weekends constantly without overtime as a part time worker for 12 dollars while the full time workers are making 38 dollars an hour or more on weekends. You will be treated like garbage here. The bosses are clueless on how the picking systems work. During the interview you will be told you have to sign a 90 day contract that you can be fired at anytime for no reason and you will be fired around the 87th day. You will be paying a 38 dollar union fee every 3 weeks for a union that will do nothing to protect you. About a week before you are going to lose your job new workers will be brought in and you will train them. You will be training them for your job. You will then be fired over the phone by the secretary who works there. The guys working in the warehouse are all very friendly and nice. There are guys who have been there part time for 5 years who are still being lead on about promises of being made full time employees and of a magical third shift thats going to be added that never will. This is a corrupt company. Avoid this position it sounds great that you will be making 12 dollars an hour part time and will be moved to full time but it will never happen.

Good place to work as far as people goes
Lab Analyst (Former Employee), Lake Charles, LAMarch 13, 2015
Very nice people to work with. Management changed quite often, and there was quite a few managers. Seemed like everything was very micromanaged. Things typically ran smoothly, and there was usually somebody to talk to about problems. Some managers were not familiar with all processes.

Store Manager (Current Employee), Louisville, KYMarch 8, 2015
Pros: stability
Cons: work and life balance
Typical Fortune 500, there are lots of opportunities, but also lots of micro-management. A wonderful place to learn when right out of school.

Batch Sr. Operator (Current Employee), Laporte, TxMarch 8, 2015
Like this facility and my co-workers, management could use a overhaul. This plant is no longer PPG, it was sold to Axiall corporation. Axiall corporation has not been to good to its employees, changing benefits for the worse, taking overtime away from supervisors. They were pretty sneaky in not telling employees that they are selling the plant to even a smaller company. This facility will soon be called Altivia.

Not such a great company to work for anymore
Commercial Sales Representative (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 6, 2015
Pros: learned the industry and have learned a great deal about b2b
Cons: management motives by fear tactics, unrealistic sales goals, work has lost any sort of fun or enjoyment
PPG was a good company to work for a few years ago. Following the acquisition of Glidden Professional, the company culture drastically changed. PPG motivates their employees with fear and makes unrealistic sales goals in an effort to cut down on commission and bonus payouts.

Packer/Inspector (Former Employee), Chester, PAMarch 2, 2015
you get there before 7:45 for the pre-shift meeting, start shift at 8, and basically you pack fiberglass for 12 hours... the hardest parts are when you have to make-up for someone not pulling their weight and getting fiberglass stuck in your hands.... the best part of the day is when you clock out...lol.

This company has good pay, good insurance, friendly work force, but the safety needs work. Overtime pay should be more, but you do get overtime pay.

INSIDE SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee), Birmingham, AL and Charlotte, NCFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: 8 - 5 monday - friday, generous education benefits.
Cons: corporate anonanimity.
Received customer orders of autoglass and supplies. I learned how glass is made, specifically tempered and laminated auto glass. During my time with PPG I became familiar with warehouse and delivery operations, sales, and inventory management. I enjoyed meeting our customers and helping with their glass needs, especially when they needed glass for rare or vintage vehicles.
