Current Employee - Sales Representative in North Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Sales Representative in North Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great products with excellent customer service.

Cons

Surrounded by prima donnas at field level management! We/they promote individuals who have not performed or suceeded into district management positions without even winning a Spectrum Award! Those who have stated that we promote based on performance needs to revise their statements. I'm all for diversity but in order to continue this drive forward we need to put people in leadership roles that HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL and have PERFORMED IN THE TRENCHES!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The reality of what's going on at field level is truely hidden from senior management of this company. Chris and John need to hit the streets and get the ground floor version of what's really going on in lieu of the top floor sugar coated version they are being fed!

    Current Employee - Full Time in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Business and sales experience for resume building.

    Cons

    Long hours, holidays, weekends. Impossible goals. Work alone, short handed all the time. Lunch is rare. No time to achieve what needs to be done. Not enough staff to properly assist customers the way the company instills in you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for yourselves. Challenge your boss and open your eyes! It's not a coincidence so many employees on all levels are leaving the company.

    Current Employee - Store Manager in Des Moines, IA

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Please scale back the hours.
