    too much work for sales associate and third key holder and not enough compensation.

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    great hours for a student. they work around one's school schedule very well. i had and still have a great relationship with my assistant manager and manager. That may be a result of the people and not necessarily anything to do with Sherwin-Williams.

    Cons

    they work you every single weekend. over a five year span, i worked on average 49-50 weekends a year. management always complains and whines when you take time off. dealing with paint contractors on a daily basis is banality at its absolute worst. no offense, actually a little, paint contractors are not the brightest or deepest individuals you'll meet. they always act like it's a sin to ask them for payment. i was under the impression that sherwin williams was a business. one important thing to note, gossip and rumors spread real quick. be careful of what you say and how you say it to other employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recognize the work that part-timers provide. i often felt like an unimportant cog in the greater machinations of sherwin-williams.

    Pros

    Good people and interesting customers. Everyday is something different and a good team environment.

    Cons

    Its almost impossible to get fired here even if you are a terrible employee. Very low responsibility, after a while it becomes a pretty boring job. There is also not much room for moving upward unless you get a degree and want to do outside sales.
