    I have been working at Valspar full-time (More than a year)


    They have really great benefits. The employees are really good people. Easy going management and overall atmosphere. A great place to work.


    It gets hot and humid during the summer months. The attendance policy and point system aren't the best and could use some improvement.

    Advice to Management

    I highly suggest hiring a Production Team Lead for each shift. A Production Tech with the authority to oversee and correct any action on the manufacturing floor. An extra set of eyes.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Valspar (New York, NY).


    I went through a temp agency and did not have to do any kind of interviews. I met with the temp agency through Adecco and was giving an interview which allowed me the opportunity.
