Pros

The work is easy. You lift buckets of paint and have a GPS device that tells you where to go. On your downtime, you just restock shelves.

Cons

Monotony. It can get boring, but the job is good money for easy work.

Advice to Management

Try not to become disenfranchised in what you are doing.
Stay interested in your employees.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -With a college degree you can move up. The idea of being a DM or DSM is entirely possible.
    -Selling to painter's who I personally get along with very well.
    -Benefits package and 401K are two good reason to work for SW
    -Some lower level employees will usually become good friends

    Cons

    -Not moving up with out a degree. Maybe to assistant manager....maybe
    -Many people find it difficult to sell "paint". Paint is not a glamorous product. It has a lot of complaint and problems associated with it, and the prices keep going up.
    -I have been here 4 years and the communication and tension between upper management and store employees/sales reps is only getting worse.
    -Stay too long and you will turn into a "Sherwin Robot", (which some people are fine with)

    Advice to Management

    I think we need to find out what is important to keep this company successful. I feel like we dump money into pointless efforts. It will be harder to retain new employees for long periods of time if they see their SW elders so fed up with the job. I am new, awarded top gun, walked the stage, made bonus money, etc.. All that really doesn't matter. The younger generations are going to work jobs they want to, not because we have to. No extra vacation for the first five years is ludicrous, not to mention the even longer gap we must wait for not much later in our career. Get rid of the Amex and BlackBerry. Get VISA and iPads. Talk to your employees and see what will actually help them.
