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 Management

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.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Days go fast during the busy season.

    Cons

    Staff members are always fighting with each other Other stores will steal customers away DM's have their favorite "team members" and will make the paper trail for those they do not like. Long hours

    Advice to Management

    If you are trying to understand why good team members are leaving, look in the mirror.
