    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in West Palm Beach, FL
    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in West Palm Beach, FL

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

    Pros

    Fairly good health benefits and the Stock Purchase Plan (401K) is performing amazingly. Also, the credit union gives low-interest loans and offers low-interest credit cards.

    Cons

    The new management in the Southeastern area is either completely out of touch with the needs of the employees or they just don't care. We suspect the latter is true, given that nothing has changes since the "secret meeting" with HR from Cleveland a few months ago. The implementation of "Seal Island" now changed to "Sales Call Wednesdays" has brought manager morale to an all-time low. This extremely unethical strategy of "poaching" customers from the parking lots of our competitors along with the forced sales calls that all managers and assistant managers have to make and document have made running the store efficiently nearly impossible. To add insult to injury, any employee who doesn't comply with the plethora of new rules, regulations, and mandated tasks can be written up on the spot and this is being used by management as leverage to intimidate employees through fear of losing their jobs. This is a pitiful work environment that is unhealthy to everyone!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your heads out of your behinds. Negative reinforcement works to a point. Eventually if you keep beating the dog, he's gong to bite you. The bigger the dog (the more employees who "unite"), the more damage he's going to inflict.
