Pros

Deal with a variety of issues that will set you up for success later down the road, especially if you want to be a manager at another organization or in a corporate setting. Was a good segue into another career for me.

Cons

Sometimes, the program (MTP) can be limiting. It's tough if you're in a rural area, as I was, and you want to get to a city location.

    Former Employee - PC Sales Representative

    Pros

    Customer Service and Sales Training. Good operations and retail store management training. Competitive Salary and Benefits. Good retirement programs.

    Cons

    Slow to change with the marketplace with service and pricing strategy. Highly desires young, promotion seeking employees over experienced employees no longer seeking relocation or career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customers greatly value long term, experienced contacts in their business transactions. It's a discredit to the company that employees unable or unwilling to move are viewed as failures by some District Level Management.

    Current Employee - MTP Assistant Manager  in  Destin, FL

    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
