    Pros

    Great health benefits! Dollar for dollar matching funds to contribute towards a 401K deposit. Credit Union. Various discounts from affiliated companies. Top notch industry and retail training. Fantastic opportunities both career wise and financially if you are a top producer.

    Cons

    LOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooong hours. 12-14 hour days, no entitlement to breaks or meals.Work weeks can be 6-7 days consistantly. Condescending upper and middle management. Constant threats by middle management to get the store staff to produce more with less. Corporate politics/clicks rule the middle and upper management in this company.

    Advice to Management

    While there are a lot of benefits to working with Sherwin Williams, I do not recommend it as a place to plan on retiring from if you plan on remaining a store manager. When the going is good, its great. When the economy turns, you are made to fear for your job.

    Pros

    Pretty nice salary, laid back atmosphere, can advance pretty quickly if you do your job well, fun teams

    Cons

    Sexual harassment issues if you are a female (although once a complaint is made they handle the situation pretty quickly), customers that bring in a lot of business are allowed to treat you as poorly as they choose, many more hours than what they tell you.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for employees instead of allowing the customer to run your store.
