I have been working at Sherwin-Williams part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Better than average part time pay and generally they were fairly flexible with my school schedule, I also got a company matched 401k and paid vacation time each year. Overall a pretty good job.

Cons

Very small staff in each store makes it difficult to call out sick if you need to as it places a great strain on those who are working. Also for the pay they expect a lot more out of you than most and you only get one raise a year which isn't much. I have worked for four years and I started at $10.50 and I just now got a decent raise to 11.80 because I took on more reasonability and became a key holder. They really work you to the bone when you are on the lower tier.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower lower level employees and have friendlier work environments.

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

    Pros

    It's always nice to help people pick out colors for new homes inside and out.

    Cons

    micro managment, they have unrealistic expectations of what can be done when you are forced to work alone all the time. Morals of upper management about passing the buck is awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to spend some time on the weekends to give advice and help to customers and employees. Since the Obama care a maximum of 25 hours per week is all you can get. raises are a joke. After 10+ years i barely make more than the new guy off the street.
