    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to extend the store hours, and cut the number of workable hours at the same stores, expect customer service and sales to decline.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams

    Pros

    stability
    works with school sched
    great for college students
    dont have to work nights

    Cons

    -not a lot of advancement for the right reason... more of a "who you know" situation
    -very bias about hiring (gender and race)
    -terrible pay for the amount of work expected
    -similar jobs at home depot or lowes are paid much better but the open stores hours are longer
    -district managers call all the shots in the stores but are very out of touch with what really is going on in the stores. they dont know names or faces behind large accounts, they visit the store 2-3 times per yr but yet know whats best. They would rather focus on issues that do not matter, such as having a radio on in the back warehouse, rather than why we just lost a customer because sherwin williams just increased their pricing again, or that 2 of 4 paint shakers are broke, or we are very understaffed.
    -Seriously work somewhere else... or anywhere BUT the Texoma District!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sherwin-Williams needs to realize that this company's best asset is it's employees. Lately the company has taken away many benefits from its hard working employees and expected more in return. Sadly this is not an effective way to gain loyalty from your employees. The company needs to increase many benifits offered and part-time/full-time staff (the HEARTBEAT of the company) need a raise. We make as much as a 16 yr old at McDonalds but have so much responsibilty and are expected to know so much. I think mgmt, and im speaking of upper mgmt such as the DM because the store manger's hands are tied, should let the store managers run THEIR store. I think that the DMs should hire more competent Sales Reps and should stop letting fresh outta college douches become asst. managers because this is a job that you ONLY learn from experience so having an ignorant asst. manager makes everyones job much harder.
