The BEHR Paint Company – Why Work For Us?


Behr History 

Behr's entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to integrity have been at the heart of our success since 1947.

BEHR is a dynamic company that actively embraces quality and innovation to bring our industry and our customers the very best products and services. Our bold entrepreneurial spirit and our commitment to integrity and to doing the right thing has been the cornerstone of our success since 1947.

Our History


Soon after the Second World War, our founder, Otho Behr, Jr. began selling linseed oil to paint stores from the back of his woody station wagon. His customers quickly made it known that they needed something that would perform better on redwood than just linseed oil. Seizing the opportunity, Otho Jr. asked his father, Dr. Otho Behr Sr., an accomplished chemist, to help him develop a formula to meet their requirements. Soon the father-and-son team began making a clear finish and stain for redwood in the Behr family garage.

In 1948, Otho Behr moved his burgeoning business from the family garage into an 800 square foot Quonset hut in Pasadena, California. Over the years, sales have steadily increased for this entrepreneurial, family-owned business. As business grew, the need for larger facilities also grew. The company, now officially known as BEHR Process Corporation, has since relocated to larger facilities and has expanded across the country and across the globe. Today BEHR has locations and businesses all across the country in California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington, and internationally in Canada, China, Guam and India. In 1986, BEHR expanded into the interior/exterior paint business, setting the stage for the next dynamic era of growth.

Up until then, for over 39 years, BEHR had been a very successful stain and varnish manufacturer and now we are proud to say we earn top recognition for our premium paints, and have since their introduction in 1986. In 1999, after 52 years of private ownership, BEHR Process Corporation was acquired by Masco Corporation of Taylor, Michigan. The merging of Masco and BEHR successfully brought together two companies who share an entrepreneurial philosophy and an overarching commitment to integrity and to "doing the right thing."

Top Workplace in Orange County

When you open a can of BEHR paint you can see the vibrant color and refined quality that professionals and do-it-yourselfers trust. But there are some things you can’t see. You can’t see the chemist and the sales reps, the color specialists and the line workers and the maintenance mechanics. The facilities managers and order pullers and the guy whose job it is to literally to watch paint dry. You can’t see the nearly 1,000 Orange County employees whose hard work had helped Behr earn the honor of Orange County Register Top Workplace for 11 consecutive years. 

  At Behr we strive to “do the right thing” This simple yet powerful guideline extends beyond company walls and reaches out into our communities. Not only has charity and finding ways to reach out to people-in-need been a company focus, it's been an individual team member focus too. In 2003, BEHR team members formalized their charity efforts with the creation of BEHR Cares, and with the company's full support, Behr's outreach and philanthropic efforts have been making a positive impact in communities throughout the country. As an organization we partner with City of Hope and Habitat for Humanity and we encourage all of our team members to give back to the community in whatever way the wish

    I have been working at The BEHR Paint Company full-time

    Pros

    Behr Paint Company is a company that says “welcome to the family.” I have felt like a member of the Behr Paint family since day one.

    When I started with Behr, I was new to the paint industry, coming from the medical world. But the Behr culture promotes product knowledge by providing extensive, hands-on training, and the company has created valuable tools such as mobile apps and videos to make this information easily accessible. I have enjoyed this learning process, but even more important are the relationships I’ve built with a group of wonderful people throughout the company.

    The Architectural team I work with are a very talented group of people. Representing Behr, whose products are top-rated and sold internationally, has been a thrill. I especially enjoy participating in Construction Specifier Institute events and representing with the team at industry tradeshows around the country. In my two short years here at Behr, I have learned a great deal about paint, color theory, the specification process and the construction industry.

    I would encourage anybody looking for a career and a place to call home to check out Behr Paint Company.

    Cons

    None that come to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture alive...... listening to employees and continue to stay open-minded

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at The BEHR Paint Company (San Luis Obispo, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview was non-technical with a recruiter and the second was technical with the potential manager or mentor. Both were phone calls and the people were very easy to talk to.
