    I have been working at Dunn-Edwards full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dunn Edwards has helped provide me the opportunity to make a difference with what I do each day. I have personally felt the impact of the values and beliefs that have been shared with me by the people that have helped make this company what it is. It's very rare in these days to find long tenured employees who still enjoy what they do. It is within those people that inspire me to come to work everyday. Dunn Edwards gives me the support I need to be the best I can be and and love what I do. I have never worked with such a team, from top to bottom, that has shown a genuine interest in me like Dunn Edwards has. From Day One, I have felt welcomed and supported from those around me.

    I started out with the company 4 years ago. That was just the beginning. That was the first step in finding my purpose. Dunn Edwards has a way of finding the top talent from the workforce and has allowed the people it's hired, to contribute to it's success. There have been multiple managers that have been there to help me daily. My peers continue to push me to be better daily and to help our company grow as a whole. I have the privilege to pay it forward each day to my team. That just makes me want to come to work and make the world a more colorful place.

    Cons

    I wish I didn't wait so long to join this team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing our people. The fact that you are deeply engaged in investing in your people is one of the best benefits that I have. My Management Team cares about me and wants to support me as I continue to grow my career. Thank you for all that you do. You guys are awesome!

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

    Pros

    I have been very impressed with Dunn-Edwards. They truly care about their employees. The Phoenix market has great leadership that wants every employee to succeed. They have great training so you can move into your position and not feel helpless for 3 months. They have a rich heritage of producing quality paint and believe in great service. They pay more than most of the industry. They believe in full time positions and don't offer many part time positions. It is definitely has a family feel. Not so cut throat like Sherwin Williams. They also have a lot of advancement potential. Most Store have a team atmosphere and good moral. Great work life balance, management positions work 40 hours per week and get many paid vacations.

    Cons

    No Overtime and some heavy lifting every so often.

    Great benefits, customers are awesome, store are clean, the products are unbelievable, the training is great and the employees are well knowledgeable

    Cons

    The employees can get lazy, don’t know how to take criticism, don’t know how to take directions very well and makes it hard for managers to managers

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to back store manager instead of listening to one side

    Pros

    Great advancement opportunities! Dunn has grown a loyal customer base that make selling their premium, locally produced product simple! It is by far one of the better companies I have worked for.

    Cons

    Dunn has recently merged with a larger company. This may or may not change the structure of Dunn's business model.

    Advice to Management

    Continue striving to improve the corporate support the growing retail locations need.

    I have been working at Dunn-Edwards full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good hours, free Gatorade in the summer, free cup cake on your birthday and discount on paint.

    Cons

    High turnover for supervisor, foreman, and leads. Favoritism in DC and manufacturing. One employee has been promoted the most. Poor management in DC. Supply chain management is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having managers post 5 stars in this website. This company should be rated 2 stars.

    Pros

    Dunn Edwards is constantly pushing the envelope and challenging everyone to make themselves and to the #1 choice of paint professionals

    Cons

    Like any other career in sales, you have to keep learning. This can be beneficial yet frustrating because as a privately held company, Dunn Edwards has to sell on the value of it's products. Because many contractors are price point oriented this can be a bit difficult. Having a superior product that costs a little more can leave too many opportunities to miss sales. A "Challenger" sales rep must be very knowlegable of his products here in order to overcome those objections

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive for excellence from your personnel. Challenge them to rise to the occasion and the over achievers will do it.
