    Pros

    Good experience. Learning experience is worth the time and effort. Full 40 hour shifts. Ok benefits

    Cons

    No long term career. Expectations aren't rational. Needs better pay rate. Management needs to improve in attitude and help development growth. No real competitive employee benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Open your eyes. You don't need more people in your store for better customer service. You need hardworking people who will dedicate themselves to the business growth if they were paid with a higher pay rate.

    Pros

    There is so much knowledge one can acquire from working in the paint industry. Room for growth and advancement (both in store and out of store).

    Cons

    Early mornings, typically only full time opportunities, pay isn't always the most substantial for cost of living.

    Pros

    easy, around people, not still all day

    Cons

    Lots of favoritism from management to employees. Managers date their employees and co workers date which can make it a weird atmosphere at times, especially when older management hits on the young females.

    Advice to Management

    Don't date your employees. Makes work odd


  8. Fast-paced environment, customer service skills are a must.

    Advice to Management

    More on the job training

    Employment is better than un-employment.

    Cons

    D-E corporate totally trusts management/leadership and totally distrusts store employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself--your not managers or leaders--your caretakers.

    Pros

    I worked for both the store and for corporate. I can say that these are two completely different worlds. I felt as if working in the store there was not a lot of support from upper management however....the work was extremely easy and the hours were decent. Working for the corporate offices was fantastic. I had a great support system/mentors!

    Cons

    They do have a 401k but Dunn Edwards does not match. There is an ESOP program but I worked for the company for 2.5 years and wasnt really able to benefit from the program. If i had stayed with the company longer then the story might be different.
