Company is focused on excellance in all areas: quality products, customer satisfaction, prompt and curtious service. They offer great benefits and an excellant manager tranining program. They are located nationwide so relocation opportunities are a possiblity.

Cons

Sometimes in large companies, streamlining is enivitable to maintain the bottom line.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Its hard to get fired

    Cons

    There is so much gossip, and back stabbing going on that it becomes distracting. The people there all act like big shots, but all they are doing is tinting paint. Most of the managers have substance abuse problems, and even use at work. They don't drug test. There is a lot of heavy lifting, and it's easy to get injured badly. You have to deal with painters, who most of the time are retarded, and think that you are their secretary. Its easy to start feeling like you are working at a dead end job. Your not aloud to listen to music. You have to hear a blue shirt with your name on it everyday. You get little to zero feedback on your job performance. You only get promoted if you are a favorite or you have waited for a very long time. Over all the job is pretty mindless, but its very physically demanding, so it is easy to burn out. It is the same thing over and over again. If you are a female the males do not seem to know how to treat you, so it feels weird. They act uncomfortable that you are around, or they treat you like you cannot do the job. They are pretty much female haters. It's very old school like it's 1920 again. And it's almost embarrassing to tell people what you do for work. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having HR write good job reviews on websites like this one. Its really obvious, and real pathetic.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great products with excellent customer service.

    Cons

    Surrounded by prima donnas at field level management! We/they promote individuals who have not performed or suceeded into district management positions without even winning a Spectrum Award! Those who have stated that we promote based on performance needs to revise their statements. I'm all for diversity but in order to continue this drive forward we need to put people in leadership roles that HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL and have PERFORMED IN THE TRENCHES!

    Advice to Management

    The reality of what's going on at field level is truely hidden from senior management of this company. Chris and John need to hit the streets and get the ground floor version of what's really going on in lieu of the top floor sugar coated version they are being fed!
