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

I worked at Sherwin-Williams part-time for 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.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, above minimum wage.
    Some stores might have you driving a lot (a pro if you like driving)

    Cons

    Can really be exhausting. It probably depends on the store and how much product you move.

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

    Pros

    If you are willing to move around the country you can move up the ladder quickly but must buy in to the corporate mantra.

    Cons

    Unobtainable sales goals. Heavily micro managed. Unreasonable hours. Seal Island..... degrading. SW was once a great place to work until the economy dipped. Everything is now micro managed and managers and sales reps are glorified sales associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management truly has no idea what is going on at the ground level in stores. Listen to your managers, reps, and associates.
