    I have been working at Valspar full-time

    Pros

    Great team work within the PSP group as well as support from the Valspar corporate leadership. This job allows me to use a variety of engineering skills from mechanical, industrial and electrical to get the job done.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is very fast passed not allowing much time to evaluate any defects off of the line with out them going to the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for new places for the PSP platform to grow the business.

    Gail has a problem. She wanted to "liven up" her living room with a new paint color, but after wading through all the options-"Nordic Forest, Golden Mist, Tangy Dill," she says, barely moving her mouth-she became despondent, and has now succumbed to a rare form of color paralysis known as Boringus Beige-itis.
