I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 3 years)

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 Management

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".

  1. Great opportunities as an MTP, if you don't mind moving around at the drop of a hat.

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, good opportunities if you are willing to move quickly.

    Cons

    Toxic environment, non-intelligent staff, pre-Madonna contractors. I worked in 4 different stores in just one year. All promotional reasons for moving but if you say no to a move, you are blacklisted. This practice continues even for DMs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to lock in your best guys to stay in a district they do not want to be in. Promotions outside of the district reflect well on you too.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    pay, health/vision/dental benefits, and the Sherwin Williams culture. Good training on running a small business and great for entry level growth. I started as a Manager Trainee and was placed as an Assistant manager instantly. They promote within the company so you can easily move up the ladder if you are willing to move.

    Cons

    if you are relocated to a smaller store.. you might not have enough part-time help . you and the manager will do majority of the work.. which can be physically and mentally draining with lots of working over time. Also, with any company.. there are a lot of rules. you must incorporate everyday routines while abiding to polices and procedures. I am a small framed female and it is definitely a physically demanding job. There has been days where i feel so overwhelmed and exhausted.. mixing upward to 100gallons a day. It takes a certain type of person working for this job
