    Pros

    Good benefits if you can get them, good retirement if you can make it. Chance for advancement if you can move.

    Cons

    If you're not willing or able to relocate plan on being in the same position. Not enough diversity. Management has very snobbish outlook on store employees. Treats them like lesser citizens. Plan on making sales calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and mind.

    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

    Fun challenges, unique products to work with, changes day to day

    Cons

    Pay compared to job requirements suck. You basically need to be an assistant manager but without the pay. Moving up in the company is impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking over good employees and pushing them away.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working here really has allowed me to put my own management, marketing and sales skills to the test, while also helping me to grow these skills.

    Cons

    Professional growth seems to be limited; you run into a lot of mangers who have been in their roles for 10+ years, sometimes it seems as it it's by choice, other times it seems like it isn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider giving more opportunity to seasoned managers and even fresh managers who show great potential and do good work.

    Pros

    Decent wages and valuable experience for people both in college and out of college.

    Requires you to deal with sometimes difficult clients. But, that is every business. We are involved in sales after all.
