    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PPG (Allison Park, PA) in June 2016.

    Take about 2 or 3 weeks to get back to me for onsite interview. The onsite interview is pretty intense from 8 am to 3pm. Starting with own research presentation, then five individual talks very intense almost none stop. Take me for a tour of their facility immediately after lunch. People are friendly, however did not get the offer. Informed about not being hired about a month after the onsite. Nice experience

    ADM Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PPG (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Very easy interview process. I came from SW so I had a head up above everyone. They asked me company info and since I did my homework I impressed the manager. They now require a group interview. Unlike SW they want more sales people. You can be effective at this company without really having industry experience as long as you can sell and close deals

    Account Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PPG (Lombard, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Walked into the office only to find a packed room of individuals waiting their turn to be called. It was so packed you were lucky to get a seat. The place was rather dirty - it looked like the office was staged with cheap tables and chairs giving you the impression they were there temporarily. Once my interview began, the gal kept responding with COOL-how unprofessional! The position I applied for was Account Manager and the job they were advertising was not account management. They were looking for someone to go into the Home Depot to promote their kitchens and bath. They basically wanted you to go strolling throughout the store, tap on peoples shoulders and let them know custom kitchen and bath services were available. After spending a few minutes in the room, I walked out, not the job for me. Don't bother wasting your time, you can do better.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at PPG (Oak Creek, WI) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Two people where in the room interviewing me. It was informal, conversational. It was mostly them talking about the job description, the hours, training and the company. I guess they just wanted to know me, they asked about my previous experience. At the end, they gave me a tour of the plant and the lab area.
