After the secondary school level, he made an apprenticeship as miller and became master in 1967. Starting 1968, he managed his parents' flour mill in Prichsenstadt.

Since 1970, Glos is a member of the CSU. In 1972 he was the first chairman of the CSU-chapter of his hometown Prichsenstadt. From 1975 to 1993, he was chairman of the CSU-district of Kitzingen. Since 1976 he is part of the executive board of the CSU Lower Franconia. Since then he is member of presidency of the CSU Bavaria. From 1993 to 2005, he was chairman of the CSU parliamentary group and deputy chairman of the CDU/CSU parliamentary group.

From 1972 to 1978, he was member of the district council of Prichsenstadt and, from 1975 to 1993, member of the council of the district (Kreistag) of Kitzingen. In 1976, Glos was elected to the Bundestag.
