    Pros

    You get to take ownership of your business and success is reliant upon your knowledge and hardwork.

    Cons

    There was never enough relief and it sometimes had a feel that it was too much of your own business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some relief and assistance to your management.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best part of working at sherwin williams was the other employees. Almost every one that works there is very fun and friendly. It is important to be a team when working in this store, and mostly everyone that works with Sherwin will have your back.

    Cons

    There are times when the job can be extremely stressful. There can be distraught customers, it can get overwhelming, or the hub can be slow delivering inventory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of the biggest thing Sherwin should work on is getting a better delivery service.

    Pros

    Sherwin Williams whole-heartedly believes that a good work-life balance is important for keeping employees happy and hard working. They have worked hard to make sure my personal life also is balanced so that I can stay happy and successful in my job. sherwin Williams is also great at promoting managerial positions from within.

    Cons

    One challenge is that the paint stores are open long hours, 7 days a week and sometimes this means hours of overtime for management of the stores. The opportunities for growth also seem to be less for part-time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice for upper management. It is clear that they know what they're doing and I am just with them to learn from them.

    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.

    Great team environment, lots of room for promotions, great pay.

    Training from district or corporate is kind of phony, you learn the most by listening to other people do their jobs and catch on that way.
