    Pros

    Its hard to get fired

    Cons

    There is so much gossip, and back stabbing going on that it becomes distracting. The people there all act like big shots, but all they are doing is tinting paint. Most of the managers have substance abuse problems, and even use at work. They don't drug test. There is a lot of heavy lifting, and it's easy to get injured badly. You have to deal with painters, who most of the time are retarded, and think that you are their secretary. Its easy to start feeling like you are working at a dead end job. Your not aloud to listen to music. You have to hear a blue shirt with your name on it everyday. You get little to zero feedback on your job performance. You only get promoted if you are a favorite or you have waited for a very long time. Over all the job is pretty mindless, but its very physically demanding, so it is easy to burn out. It is the same thing over and over again. If you are a female the males do not seem to know how to treat you, so it feels weird. They act uncomfortable that you are around, or they treat you like you cannot do the job. They are pretty much female haters. It's very old school like it's 1920 again. And it's almost embarrassing to tell people what you do for work. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having HR write good job reviews on websites like this one. Its really obvious, and real pathetic.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, can be laid back depends on management. There is a lot of griping and turnover that goes on but there are also guys who have been there 30 years.

    Cons

    Work/life balance A lot of the weekends I find sitting in the store. The hours are national, meaning even in small areas you have to be open ridiculous times.

    Advice to Management

    Please scale back the hours.
