Great place to advance if you put in the effort
Forming Technician (Former Employee) –  Chester, SCJanuary 13, 2019
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.

Worst company to work for
Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Oak Creek, WIJanuary 5, 2019
Expected you to do an obscene amount of work with not enough time to do it. Expected you to know how to do certain tasks with no prior experience and did not train well enough.

Fantastic place to have worked.
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYJanuary 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, LAJanuary 1, 2019

Manager was very abusive
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Denver, CODecember 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, NCDecember 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.

Poor Management

Associates with years of experience were being eliminated.
Pros

Lack of leadership

Horrible Place to work
Checker / Drexel Driver (Former Employee) –  Oak Creek, WIDecember 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 .
Pros
overtime
Cons
everything else

Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  402 Bluebird Blvd, Ft Valley, GA 31030December 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.
Pros
Good Benefits. Fair pay
Cons
Short breaks. Turnover ratio.
