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

    Pros

    401K and paid holidays are incredibly generous. Nicest people in the world. Global nature of business is interesting and exciting. If you are smart and like to work hard, you will go far at Valspar. Smart business-casual dress every day. Located in the heart of the city.

    Cons

    Some inconsisent processes. Some gaps in Human Resources that could be improved, especially around talent management and employee ratings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep driving quality and success while recognizing the efforts of the employees

    Application Details

    The process took 3 months - interviewed at Valspar.

    Interview Details

    Much selling about the great things offered. Not very challenging interview. Selling more as to how the company is growing. Seemed little desperate and not evaluative. Very easy interview that did not make me feel the job would be hard to get
