about
I retired from PPG in 2007 after 51 years. In my opinion it was the greatest company to work for. They always treated me fairly even up to when I decided to retire.

Management is about the bottom line, money over it's people. Work part-time employees to dealth. No benefits for the worker, just managers and sales. No chance to move up. Go Sherwin-Williams

PPG Management

about
I retired from PPG in 2009 as a forty year employee. I never thought PPG could go to pot the way it did my last five years at PPG. In the last 5 years of employment, I was lied to, threatened, intimitated, age discrimination was rampant. THe young people they were bringing in, as my boss, was making less than I was. THey would not listen to anyone with experience and the only things that the plant manager wanted to do was cut, cut and more cut. We had a near disaster, it was only adverted by the experienced employees that took over and brought the problem to a good out come. Our great plant manager did not thank anyone. THere was a large chemical spill at this particular plant in 2010 and the place was closed for 3 to 4 days trying to clean up the toxic chemicals. B Y the way they had gotten rid of 90% of the experienced, high paid, people and didn't have the experience to stop the leak.

GOOD LUCK NEW EMPLOYEES AND MAKE CERTAIN YOU KEEP A DIARY OF ANY THING THAT HAPPENS TO YOU WHILE EMPLOYEED AT PPG.
IT USE TO BE A GREAT COMPANY AS CLOSE AS 7 TO 8 YEARS AGO.

Allways watch your back

about
I can tell you most of my 29 years with the company were good till i was sold like slavery. I thank god every day i made the grandfather age plus years to get out of Dodge ( PGW ) while i could. Some how i think PPG is still pulling strings with its 40% ownership. Watch you back in both companys.

2500 job cuts in PG

about
I feel strange that the company is still hiring new people, on the other hand I have seen some employees let go. We are going through crises and the example is the decision of 2500 job cuts. How can a company let its experienced employees go and replace them with new and fresh employees? We are still in a setback about management’s decision. It may be because the new people are getting on the ship on low compensations.

PPG Layoffs in fulll swing

about
Years of service and all it takes is a call into the HR office -- where they say - you are no longer employed at PPG" -- and then proceed to tell you how you will be helped taking your personal belongings home ...

After so many years of service, no loyalty - no help with health insurance -- nothing. Outplacement support or training - what a joke.

I also though HR was condescending.
