PPG looks internally for their progression in hourly employees. Lots of opportunity to advance until you get to management. It slows once that happens of course because there aren't as many job opportunities. Pay is fair and the plant I worked for is fair to their employees.

Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – January 2, 2019
PPG distribution was an outstanding beacon to the few who work there. With a small staff of about twenty people. Safety was top priority and the work was wonderful to do. The people where the best. Had they not closed I would have worked there even today.
Bulk Loader Operator (Former Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – January 1, 2019
they only care about productivity not safety. you get hurt they will cover it up and let you go. supervision will not let you move up. they would rather take someone off the street that only stay for a little while bc they move on to better pay.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – December 24, 2018
Worked for Denver PPG plant. I enjoyed the work and kept busy. Co-workers were helpful and nice. The supervisor was very abusive to temps. Would humilate and berate you for mistakes. Left there in tears everyday. I would have rather had a male supervisor than female. She was very abusive plain and simple. She was 400 lbs and too lazy to empty her own office trash. It would be good with the right supervisor there. My experience was awful from the treatment I received there.
Packer (Former Employee) – Shelby, NC – December 20, 2018
It was a good place to work. It has rough work hours though. 2 days and 2 nights. Really messed sleeping habits up. Really good pay and benefits. Management was sometimes understanding and there were some people that was hard to work with.
Technical Support Representative (Former Employee) – Denison, TX – December 12, 2018
It was a contract job for 7 months in Manufacturing and Industrial paint. Learned how to represent the brand as a contractor. Constant communication and support. Workplace culture was fast paced but not stressful. Challenges were situations involved conflict resolution and documentation. Very much enjoyed working with a team of professionals.
Management priority was not consistent to values toward customers and employees. This change when the company management were filled with inexperience managers with no prior experience in the industry. It cause a massive turmoil in work environment and business results. Associates with years of experience were being eliminated.
Checker / Drexel Driver (Former Employee) – Oak Creek, WI – December 7, 2018
Horrible place to work. They don't care about you and your fellow works don't care. It has a 2 tier pay system so people doing the same work get up to 10 dollars less for doing the same job. Union has no strength or balls to stand up for the employees. Turn around there is crazy. You work with chemicals that will and will kill you and they don't care .
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Delaware, OH – December 4, 2018
PPG Ind. values work experience and provides opportunities to those who posses it. It is a fast paced and challenging environment conducive to further developing leadership and decision making skills. Pay incentives are very good along with the benefits.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – 402 Bluebird Blvd, Ft Valley, GA 31030 – December 2, 2018
A typical day consisted of operating a machine that painted parts for buses. it was a fairly repetitive job. The hardest part would be having to fix things on the machine when it would break down. The culture was decent. Working together to get the job done. I learned a lot about how machines work while I was there.
