Former Employee - Sales Representative in Memphis, TN
Former Employee - Sales Representative in Memphis, TN

I worked at PPG part-time (more than a year)

Pros

I had a great experience with PPG, however, it was only a seasonal job I did through college and not an actual career or anything. I learned a lot about marketing strategies and how to beat out the competition and sell our products directly to customers.

Cons

Meh, I really can't complain. The sales rep I worked with was great and did an excellent job mentoring me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote and appreciate your sales reps.

    Pros

    When you get a job with PPG, you don't have to worry about losing it. It's hard to get your foot in the door, but once you do, they try to keep you in. It's a large company, and they are currently struggling to recruit, so there is & will be lots of room for advancement now and as the baby boomers begin to retire. The pay is decent and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    Their way of treating employees is very outdated. Good performance ratings are restricted to a certain percentage of the company. If you and all of your co-workers do an awesome job, it looks like you're going to have to alternate the good performance reviews & bonus escalations from year-to-year. There is minimal investment in the quality of the workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the workplace. Lighten up a little bit...allow the corporate office to have a Casual Friday.
