    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams part-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits and pay, work can be pretty fun, most managers are fairly laid back and you don't feel like you're a slave to work and being forced to work sundays or nights like some other part time jobs

    Cons

    Lots of hours, not having to clock out for lunch is nice, but you are expected to stop eating and work if need be that way, i would sometimes rather just clock out for lunch but nobody really does that here

    Advice to Management

    Train practically, not with silly online programs. Product knowledge is very important, at least in a non heavy DIY store.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company is filed with people who really care about each other. It actually has a pension and 401k. This company offers great advancement opportunity if you are able to relocate.

    Cons

    Some of the leadership has lost touch with what's going on. Some of the sales goals are a bit unrealistic expecting ten plus percent year over year.

    Advice to Management

    How about some undercover boss type action so the upper level can see how much has changed in the power levels since they were in it.

    Team-oriented and sufficient support from management to follow career goals providing continual training as you advance with company.

    At times more concerned with meeting the numbers than the nature of the market e.g. if new growth drives sales in previous year but then growth in the area slows still required to surpass prior years numbers
