I worked at Valspar full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Freindly people, Workout facility on-site

Cons

Mangement only cares what their employees are going to do for them to make them look good, no respect given to those people who have been with Valspar for years. No training or advancement opportunities, always look to hire for the outside, not within the Company. Constant fear that you are going to be cut next because you don't work with the vision they have

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within and spend money training your employees, support and train the talent you have instead of cutting them when they aren't good enough anymore

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

    Pros

    The job of covering multiple stores was great, you got to work with a lot of different people.
    The pay was okay, the bonuses were good and relatively easy to achieve.

    Cons

    It seemed like the more time went on, more and more things were put on our plates but the plates stayed the same size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A few less stores to rep ratio

    I worked at Valspar full-time

    Pros

    People generally are good.
    Can collaborate with some at the plant level to share ideas for improvement.

    Cons

    Management does not support continuous improvement efforts. They do not involve the appropriate staff in decision making, thus efforts are wasted because implementation is seldom supported by plant employees.
    Most employees are not trained well enough to perform the job with high levels of qualtiy and safety. There is no accountability to completing jobs according to procedure.
    Scope writing for projects not properly done allowing contractors to make important decision that should be coming from the project managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve appropriate technical staff when making large capacity or quality improvement changes. Get their input so that the efforts are properly supported and sustained post implementation.
    Follow through with agreed resolutions to voiced employee concerns.
