    I have been working at Pittsburgh Glass Works full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job itself is easy and pretty stress free. The pay is good for the area, especially considering there is no higher education requirement to get the job. You get an hour long lunch break that is paid, including two other 30-minute breaks. Benefits are good. Work a rotating schedule, so you'll get a print out of the days you work for the entire year and you only work half the year.

    Cons

    The shifts are 12 hours, so they're long. Training isn't optimum so you'll have to figure a lot of stuff out on your own.

    I have been working at Pittsburgh Glass Works full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are many advancement opportunities since the company is being redesigned as PGW. Decent amount of vacation time. 50% match on 401k

    Cons

    Pay is below average. Everyone in management and production is very new and does not yet have a sense of direction. We have a revolving door of new employees. No background check on new employees! Equipment is very outdated. We continue to run off everyone with experience.
