Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Laurinburg, NC

I have been working at Pilkington

ProsPilkington has an good pay package and decent benefits.
The people you work with are friendly.

ConsThey do not like to pay you based on your experience, which can create an unfair advantage for someone who has been in other industries working.
