If yes, how big will the cut be?
One can only hope that the current CEO is removed ASAP from PPG. The current CEO needs to spend his time on the business of making profits instead of promoting a fallacy of woke policies, which he falsely believes are beneficial to the bottom line... — read more
Anyone would care to chime in with a prediction about potential PPG layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Well, as expected. Liberal management has fallen in lock step with the unconstitutional executive order and is requiring all employees to get the jab. No consideration for anything else.
Investors looked only on surface and it worked!!! Now company since has tried to acquire 2nd largest global Paint Company, Akznoble and failed! The party ended! Now this poorly managed company has to be judged on its own weak performance true... — read more
PPG loses money on the stores business each and every year. They have for at least the last 10+ years. The best thing they could do it to sell the stores to individuals that want to own paint stores and have them become dealers. ALL the money on the... — read more
I am happy that I still have a job, however, sometimes I would have preferred to be among those who were laid off. Layoffs impacted badly not only those who were dismissed, but also those who survived. I’m overwhelmed with work because this company... — read more
I’d love to get out of here, but I don’t have much idea where to go. This is my first job and I would not like to repeat the experience of getting into a company that is a total mess once again.
I completely agree with someone who said that all ppg knows how to do is make acquisitions, and they know very little about paint business. They seem to have lost touch with reality because they are dealing with everything except what is their core... — read more
Will there be any PPG Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
As of today Friday April 10, 2020 PPG has closed over 230 stores and has layoffed its employees. Stores were informed Wednesday and were told they were closing temporarily till things clear up financially. This is not a response to keep its employees... — read more
Well here we go again, yet another misstep by PPG. If the PPG services program which drove away almost all of the Union work, the numerous price increases, or the rebranding of products AGAIN wasn’t enough now they are putting the almighty dollar... — read more
Do you know how many employees work at the co? How about the HQ at Pittsburgh?
What's your prediction as it relates to the possiblity of PPG Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
Just heard it today
Automotive and Industrial will survive and they will break off AF very soon. PPG Paints has no model or direction. Every major market is acting independently still trying to find out what works best for them. Closing stores in an underdeveloped... — read more
I have more than 18 years in the paint industry now with a couple different companies and I have never seen such a poorly run company especially at the store levels as PPG Paints. I was with Glidden when the PPG buy out happened and ever since then... — read more
Seeing top talent starting to exit and more will be leaving as soon as bonuses are paid. Lots of disgruntled employees asking for references, etc. Broom and her co-horts are ignorant to the situation and need to go. Never seen such a mess at the top... — read more
What are your thoughts about potential PPG Layoffs in 2019?
My advice is play the game. Get yourself a 2 year certificate (they pay for school) and apply for other positions, they have so many other opportunities available. If you don't bother to search, go to school and apply. Then yes, you will feel your 5... — read more
They laid off over 1,100 employees... I just left the company recently... Texas carried the rest of the markets but even in texas they can't put a dent in sw... ppg corporate doesn't listen to us reps in the field... It's going to be their downfall... — read more

I never thought that I'll be surprised here again, but layoffs in corporate are always a juicy topic. Have you heard that we may have layoffs in Pittsburgh.
I saw this in an article, but sums PPG up pretty neatly: institutionalized stupidity, toxic politics and pathological caution
I worked there for a few years, and it was easily the most demoralizing experience in my career. That company simply does not care about their employees. Fear based culture, ridiculous amounts of unrewarded OT (like not even comp time), bully bosses... — read more
Starting out young in company then told MAGIC age with benefits you will be cut rehired new employee or contract ...why company makes enough money to keep knowledgeable resources; the sleeping with bosses does get promotions its said good old boys... — read more
work for ppg for nearly 40 years and heard all the lies! best thing that ever happen was when ppg sold works 4 to Vitro. We work for a company that cares for the employees now
They use to care about their employees but in the last 15 or 20 years all they have cared about is the almighty dollar. Why do you think they are outsourcing jobs They don't give a damn...
I have been with PPG since being acquired in 2013. I'm a manager in architectural coatings. I have worked for a few different companies in the paint industry. I have never worked for a company that cares so little about their people. They make really... — read more
I'm a ppg employee and with this company making 15 billion dollars last year I don't see how is is OK for them to lay anybody off if it wasn't for those employees doing their jobs as good as they do this Company wouldn't be where it is and all I hear... — read more
PPG just announced, they are cutting 17 hundred jobs. Such a thugs, they haven't even bothered to give more specifics. They just said that they will be cutting where needed, globally. whatever that means. I am not sure will Pittsburgh be impacted at... — read more
I gave this company my best five years, still payed on lower end and hardly seen any raise at all. Not to mention working hours. Not that I don't like my job,( I work in sales, it's hectic all the time, but I like it that way), but I really don't... — read more
You know that the company is rotten when "yes-man" culture takes over. I've been working in PPG for 4 years, and I see it everywhere I turn. With leaders it's all about stockholders, they don't care about people nor for the company's well being... — read more
Why no posts on this? Why no posts on PPG layoffs in general?
I know that this sounds like a broken record, but some folks are talking about possibly having layoffs in Pittsburgh.
What is the likelihood of PPG layoffs in Pittsburgh in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
Do we have any updates here?
