I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Benefits are decent and pay is ok. As long as your sales are up they leave you alone, but if you have one bad month they hound you and hound you and expect you to do a lot of work investigating on your own time at home with no compensation.

Cons

District Managers are way out of touch with what goes on within stores. Some have never worked in stores and are unwilling to help with problems that might arise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Review you checks and balances system within upper management. HR is only there for the higher-ups and they always talk and gang up on a employee that might have issues Human Resource related.

    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.
