    Pros

    Great company for experience on your resume. Nice people to work with if you are in the right department.

    Cons

    A ton of higher up bosses who think they don't have to do anything because they've been there so long. Vacation days take awhile to build.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits. Most of the people working at sherwin are pretty good people .

    Cons

    The HR is horrible. Currently a temp to hire, but I hear the wait is at least 2 yrs. I haven't received a check and I'm going on 3 weeks. I spoke with HR, and the only thing she could say is sorry.. Let's wait a few days and see what happens. .. Give me a break... I'm glad I wasn't trying to make a future with this company .. Very unpleasant HR⬇️

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people with ... People skills and exceptional customer service skills. Willing to go beyond there calling to help employees with any problems they may have.

    Pros

    Sherwin Williams has a friendly staff and management, if you take the time to talk to them. The HR will work with you to find ways to promote growth. High potential for growth. Great benefits and pay for the industry.

    Cons

    Never know what the day will be like. It can be nonstop, fast paced or just a handful of the usual customers and a lot of nothing. Depends on your store size and location

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

    Pros

    They have great internship/PA programs. Every year there are over 150 of interns working for the company. Usually they are willing to work with school schedule and everyone treats you very nice.

    Cons

    Not enough mentoring/training. There is no sense of direction which can be good for some people while for most it is bad. Your direct managers have not much influence or knowledge if there will be a full time position after graduation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work load and reporting system/process needs to be improved since it does not show what is actually happening.

    Pros

    This job is very easy once you learn the ropes. Overall, the atmosphere within the store is chill and my co-workers are pretty awesome, but the store dynamic really depends on the people you work with. Luckily, my manager is pretty flexible and our store staff is rather large so scheduling things like vacation time is simple. I started as an MTP and got promoted to assistant manager fairly quickly and the pay and benefits are good. When I asked for a job transfer because I was going back to school, I took on a part time position which is where I am now.

    Cons

    - Customers can be difficult/rude
    - MTPs are often shuffled around from store to store and not promoted for months depending on the district
    - This company is big on relocation, so if you aren't willing to move if they ask, you may get left behind
