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

Pros

great hours for a student. they work around one's school schedule very well. i had and still have a great relationship with my assistant manager and manager. That may be a result of the people and not necessarily anything to do with Sherwin-Williams.

Cons

they work you every single weekend. over a five year span, i worked on average 49-50 weekends a year. management always complains and whines when you take time off. dealing with paint contractors on a daily basis is banality at its absolute worst. no offense, actually a little, paint contractors are not the brightest or deepest individuals you'll meet. they always act like it's a sin to ask them for payment. i was under the impression that sherwin williams was a business. one important thing to note, gossip and rumors spread real quick. be careful of what you say and how you say it to other employees.

Advice to Management

recognize the work that part-timers provide. i often felt like an unimportant cog in the greater machinations of sherwin-williams.

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

    Pros

    Days go fast during the busy season.

    Cons

    Staff members are always fighting with each other
    Other stores will steal customers away
    DM's have their favorite "team members" and will make the paper trail for those they do not like.
    Long hours

    Advice to Management

    If you are trying to understand why good team members are leaving, look in the mirror.

    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.
