I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very good benefits, decent pay, most store managers very easy to work with

Cons

upper management is focused on profits only to the detriment of customer service, and employees, have cut part time hours allowed and made stores open 18 more hours a week spreading employees very thin

Advice to Management

Go back to roots of customer service, and promoting to high positions in company from people working in the stores, have top management ask honest opinions about hours open-one size does not fit all stores, and work life balance with the cut in part time hours and being open more hours

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great 401k matching, fairly easy promotions, good health benefits

    Cons

    Its retail. Be prepared to work weekends, odd hours, and generally a high stress environment. For a college grad, having to work behind a counter and where polo shirts with khakis can be a little demeaning. Retail customers are not a great crowd, and your commercial customers (mostly painters) can be a pretty rough crowd. Store hours and promotions are trying to compete with big name home improvement stores. They are going after the retail market, which means longer hours and less flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, don't go after college grads. They will constantly be on the lookout for something better. Instead, you should be focusing on training your full-time and part-timers to become good management. They are likely to respect and appreciate the job more.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the PSG for 8 years now. The coworkers in the store are good people and easy to get along with. Over all my time with the companys has been good

    Cons

    In the last 4 years it has become harder and harder. Store employees are nothing but puppets for district managment. We are micro managed with zero focus. There is no drive for store employees. The company has a good bonus structure for store managment but it does nothing when you are up for the year and district mnagment raises your budget in mid december so you wont make budget and your bonus is gone.

    Advice to Management

    As a asst manager when my sales are up, I am short staffed and busy it really demeans what I am doing when i get a call from a CM complaning the Lead gen calls are not done for the week. Do you want sales or 50 calls to answereing machines. Stop dumping more and more things on us in the stores that have no overall solution or way to be completed. Lastly be REAL with the employees stop playing games!
