I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time

Pros

Good pay, opportunity to move around, Stock is rising quickly

Cons

Pressure from upper management, Hours are bad for those in a store. Work alot alone. You can get stuck in a position that and cant move if your store or territory doesnt do well

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to employees to see what they want in a career and make decisions based on that and performance because a lot of employees are frustrated. The hours are not what people expect to work out of college and by continuing to extend them frustrates employees.

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

    Pros

    love the people of SW, cant beat it! If you've been working for 5+ yrs, you remember the good/fun times. Great learning experiences. Opportuntiy to grow and use your brains to run your store, with lots of help from corporate.

    Cons

    too many sales drives, flip-flopping agendas, little to no holidays off. Lots of college grads with entitlement issues entering the company, most never make it past assistant manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many topics of immediate action needed, always operating is panic mode. Need to put yourself in the customer's shoes, we can only do so much at the store level to get business. Make the process easier to get business, painters don't have great credit for the majority. Pay us for the 2 person job we do everyday, look at the stock, 1% doesn't cut it...
