Current Employee - Store Manager in Detroit, MI

I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great "stepping stone" for a real career later. Very structured, lots of support, but micromanaged. Decent benefits.

Cons

Unreasonable demands consumarate to the compensation. 60-70 hour work weeks are quite common during the summer months. This is essentially a retail management position so you work weekends, holidays, etc...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

From a stock-holder's perspective, I think you are incredible!! As an employee, you could definitely loosen the pursestrings and staff the stores accordingly.

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    If your a minority or a woman , then your golden. If you bust your tail and dont get shafted by upper management then you have the ability to make bonus.

    Cons

    NO family life at all. You get hours off not days. You have no staff and are alone alot. All non fulltime employees are completely cut on hours so if you had a good employee they quit because Connor,Davidson, and other big wigs care more about their wallet than employees. LOOOOOONG hours for a paint store. Lack of pay for required job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care a little more. Dont make up new policies about how to stock the warehouse because women have a hard time doing it. Cut these dumb hours back and give people a freaking day off.
