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

    Pros

    At Sherwin-Williams you can learn some really good practical knowledge about painting. They also offer a really good employee discount on some of the best products in the industry. You'll get a good work out too!

    Cons

    The physical workload can be overwhelming at times....delivering several hundred gallons of paint is physically taxing as each five gallon bucket weighs 55-70lbs depending on the product, and each bucket has to be hand loaded into and out of a van or delivery truck. The pace is frantic most of the time trying to service customers that want their product asap from overwhelmed stores. Advancement can be hard to come by as well.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people! Stores are running on a skeleton crew most of the time and are easily overwhelmed.
