I worked at Sherwin-Williams as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Fair pay, for most workers. Great compensation for those in management or sales. Great place for college grads to start off, especially since you can guarantee yourself a place in the MTP program. Or just as an intern it is a good summer job and side job.

Cons

Complex relations with the managers and regional higher ups. Hope your warehouse has climate control in the summer! Also some workers did not work as hard and it was obvious in all stores that these guys drained us.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give more opportunities to your entry level workers and improve relations between them and the area management.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Have been very flexible with my schedual, manager is great, good benifits and retirement planning with company match. Regular raises

    Cons

    outside management is totally disconected from the store and give off the impression that they do not care about employees at the store level at all. They have quite a few bonus benifits listed for employees on their website, such as employee referals and paying for you to get a rosseta stone program but if you request it they will just ignore it if you are not persistant in calling them about the status, will still take months to get it taken care of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company at the top seems to be promoting the message that they really care about the employees and that the company is all people that have worked their way up from ground level, but there is a big disconnect and I feel like the general atitude of employees at the actual stores is that staff at the district level and above don't care and that unless you get into the company through the MTP program out of college you will not have an opportunity for growth

    Pros

    Store employees can be a pleasure to work with. Great benefits and 401K options. Promotions are available but its a very linear ladder.

    Cons

    For what is expected pay is exceptionally low. Lead generation sales calls make it almost impossible to concentrate on managing your store. Especially the quantity that are required on a weekly basis. That said, most stores are understaffed which compounds the problem. Long hours, difficult clientele, and did i mention pay is not nowhere near what it should be for what is expected. No company parties, nothing at all. Really? How do you keep a team environment when there's no interaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. From what I've heard about what it used to be, they've lost track of making their employees feel appreciated and making it a "blue family".
