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.

    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
