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

    Pros

    -Decent pay for out of college
    -Benefits were ok

    Cons

    Where to begin...
    -Very unrealistic store expectations. Assistant managers have to make 30 lead generation calls a week while running the store by themselves. Managers have to do weekly "Seal Island" calls where they have to basically stalk potential customers in Home Depot and Lowe's Parking lots...really??
    -The stores are open 7 days a week and only closed 4 days during the year, so expect to work holidays and weekends (including 4th of July, Memorial Day, Christmas Eve, Labor Day, & New Year's Eve). Very bad work/life balance.
    -Understaffed stores, it's typical to work 12 hour shifts by yourself. Part-time hours have been drastically reduced so there is not as much part-time help available. This leaves Managers and Assistant Managers working by themselves most of the time.
    -44 hour work week rather than a typical 40 hour workweek, those extra hours really do add up!
    -Heavy lifting that can consist of 100+ pounds
    -It can take awhile to advance with the company and you have to be willing to move around

    I suggest college graduates to do research before taking an offer as an MTP with this company. You can find something so much better!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management really needs to keep in touch with store level employees. The company only seems to care about profit rather than the employees which has been leading to lower employee morale.
