Great Company!

Marketing Specialist (Current Employee)
Cleveland, OH

I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFinancially strong; promote from within; career advancement opportunities; invest in training and job tools

I worked at SW for over 3 years and really enjoyed it. I made a difficult decision to leave (on good terms) and start my own home renovation business, which did well for a while but not enough to support a growing family on single income. I have applied to several positions at SW and not had any luck. It's a wonderful company and I would gladly work for them again.

ConsChallenging re-hire practices; once you leave, it is next to impossible to be re-hired

Advice to Senior ManagementReconsider your re-hire policy and practices; people who leave the company on good terms should be valued as possible future candidates as they are ahead of the learning curve.
