I worked at Sherwin-Williams as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Fair pay, for most workers. Great compensation for those in management or sales. Great place for college grads to start off, especially since you can guarantee yourself a place in the MTP program. Or just as an intern it is a good summer job and side job.

Cons

Complex relations with the managers and regional higher ups. Hope your warehouse has climate control in the summer! Also some workers did not work as hard and it was obvious in all stores that these guys drained us.

Advice to Management

Give more opportunities to your entry level workers and improve relations between them and the area management.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    pay, health/vision/dental benefits, and the Sherwin Williams culture. Good training on running a small business and great for entry level growth. I started as a Manager Trainee and was placed as an Assistant manager instantly. They promote within the company so you can easily move up the ladder if you are willing to move.

    Cons

    if you are relocated to a smaller store.. you might not have enough part-time help . you and the manager will do majority of the work.. which can be physically and mentally draining with lots of working over time. Also, with any company.. there are a lot of rules. you must incorporate everyday routines while abiding to polices and procedures. I am a small framed female and it is definitely a physically demanding job. There has been days where i feel so overwhelmed and exhausted.. mixing upward to 100gallons a day. It takes a certain type of person working for this job

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

    Pros

    Store employees can be a pleasure to work with. Great benefits and 401K options. Promotions are available but its a very linear ladder.

    Cons

    For what is expected pay is exceptionally low. Lead generation sales calls make it almost impossible to concentrate on managing your store. Especially the quantity that are required on a weekly basis. That said, most stores are understaffed which compounds the problem. Long hours, difficult clientele, and did i mention pay is not nowhere near what it should be for what is expected. No company parties, nothing at all. Really? How do you keep a team environment when there's no interaction.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. From what I've heard about what it used to be, they've lost track of making their employees feel appreciated and making it a "blue family".
