    I worked at Sherwin-Williams as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Paid 10 Internship; Learned a lot & gained business experience. Was offered a management job upon graduation. The company overall has great values and a large market share.

    Cons

    There wasn't mush room for fast growth. The people in management positions were not happy with the way they were treated by district and communicated they were not planning on working for the company much longer. Not the best pay. Retail environment.

    Pros

    Management is top notch, everyone I've met in the company has been friendly, have made a lot of friends and connections.

    Cons

    Work hours are long for a paint store. Trying to compete with big box stores when you are a specialty store doesn't work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to being a paint store and focus energy on that.

    Pros

    Decent pay for a recent grad. As well as benefits. My particular store manager is excellent! No two store are the same so no two experiences are the same. You will learn a lot about paint, how it's made, application, and various other random things that customers bring to your attention. There is room for advancement, although this could take awhile. If your store meets its budget quarterly and annually, the bonuses are very good. Build relationships with customers because most are regulars, and you know each other on a first name basis.

    Cons

    MT programs has good intentions but falls short on preparation, especially in becoming an assistant manager. The work-life balance at my store was horrible, considering we were understaffed and the DM didn't care to help with that. Store hours are long and include Saturday and Sunday. I would work 10 days straight at times just to cover all the hours that the store is open. Customers are high maintenance and often leave you stressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would give the MT program another look, especially where training on how to manage employees who are older and know way more. Also, if you know that stores in your district are understaffed, STAFF THEM!
