    Pros

    Above average pay scale. Decent benefits. Senior management is demanding but fair.

    Cons

    Some of the supervision are clueless and fight amongst themselves. They treat employees terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Review these supervisors treatment of staff and take corrective action. Perhaps, plant a manager among them to observe and report back to corporate with recommend replacement of those causing issues.

    I have been working at Pittsburgh Glass Works full-time (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 (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The environment is much more friendly than it was in the past. It is still quite challenging, but now associates work together to solve problems.

    Cons

    The usual automotive manufacturing hustle and bustle. Ongoing issues are swept under the rug, in favor of quick fixes--this will eventually back fire.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating employees well, to attract the talent we desperately need. Please focus on long term goals a little more.

    Not micro managed. Open communications with plant management. Getting training on various skills is available.
