    Former Employee - Full Charge Bookkeeper

    I worked at PPG full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fair, responsive, value employees and their inputs. Committed to making a good workplace and committed to customer satisfaction. Do offer you to apply to a new position in main headquarters or a different type of position in the same store if your local position is eliminated during a new store purchase.

    Cons

    Many locations are paint stores in the retail market. There are no office personnel in the local stores, unfortunately some positions are eliminated when they purchase new outlets.

    I have been working at PPG

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, room to grow, willing to work with you, management actually cares about you (or at least as much as they can being such a large company)

    Cons

    It's a large company so sometimes you get a little lost but I really don't have a lot of cons. It's corporate do anything that goes along with a corporate job would come along with this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep caring about your employees

    Former Employee - Shader in Delaware, OH

    I worked at PPG full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I liked everyone I worked with. People are usually friendly and helpful. If you like to stay busy, this is a good job for you. They do offer free higher education, stipulated that you must stay with the company at least 5 years after you get your degree.

    Cons

    It can be boring to stay at the same department for many years. After a while you master your position and there is little growth to be made. They do offer first dibs internally for new jobs but it can be hard to meet the qualifications. Management likes to hear from workers regarding new ideas to improve work flow. But new ideas are rarely implemented. I even won an award for a contribution that was never put into practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if people's ideas were given a chance more often.
