    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are willing to move around the country you can move up the ladder quickly but must buy in to the corporate mantra.

    Cons

    Unobtainable sales goals. Heavily micro managed. Unreasonable hours. Seal Island..... degrading. SW was once a great place to work until the economy dipped. Everything is now micro managed and managers and sales reps are glorified sales associates.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management truly has no idea what is going on at the ground level in stores. Listen to your managers, reps, and associates.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, above minimum wage.
    Some stores might have you driving a lot (a pro if you like driving)

    Cons

    Can really be exhausting. It probably depends on the store and how much product you move.
