I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Very good benefits, decent pay, most store managers very easy to work with

Cons

upper management is focused on profits only to the detriment of customer service, and employees, have cut part time hours allowed and made stores open 18 more hours a week spreading employees very thin

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to roots of customer service, and promoting to high positions in company from people working in the stores, have top management ask honest opinions about hours open-one size does not fit all stores, and work life balance with the cut in part time hours and being open more hours

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

    Pros

    I have been with the PSG for 8 years now. The coworkers in the store are good people and easy to get along with. Over all my time with the companys has been good

    Cons

    In the last 4 years it has become harder and harder. Store employees are nothing but puppets for district managment. We are micro managed with zero focus. There is no drive for store employees. The company has a good bonus structure for store managment but it does nothing when you are up for the year and district mnagment raises your budget in mid december so you wont make budget and your bonus is gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a asst manager when my sales are up, I am short staffed and busy it really demeans what I am doing when i get a call from a CM complaning the Lead gen calls are not done for the week. Do you want sales or 50 calls to answereing machines. Stop dumping more and more things on us in the stores that have no overall solution or way to be completed. Lastly be REAL with the employees stop playing games!

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    At Sherwin-Williams you can learn some really good practical knowledge about painting. They also offer a really good employee discount on some of the best products in the industry. You'll get a good work out too!

    Cons

    The physical workload can be overwhelming at times....delivering several hundred gallons of paint is physically taxing as each five gallon bucket weighs 55-70lbs depending on the product, and each bucket has to be hand loaded into and out of a van or delivery truck. The pace is frantic most of the time trying to service customers that want their product asap from overwhelmed stores. Advancement can be hard to come by as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people! Stores are running on a skeleton crew most of the time and are easily overwhelmed.
