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

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    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 for 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.
