Pros

Sherwin-Williams is a long established compnay with a great track record for hiring good people. Everyday is different, operating a store is enjoyable, providing above and beyond customer service, full benefits with bonus potential. Overall it is a great company to start at and if you want to stay you can definitely move up. Flexible schedule.

Cons

It takes a while to move up the ranks unless you are a real go getter but even then the chips need to fall in the right places. Sales calls, not quite cold calling, but practically. Working weekends and holidays, despite having a flexible schedule.

Advice to Management

Take care of the people who are the face of SW. The management teams in all of the stores across the country. Without them, the company will suffer.

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Customer Service and Sales Training. Good operations and retail store management training. Competitive Salary and Benefits. Good retirement programs.

    Cons

    Slow to change with the marketplace with service and pricing strategy. Highly desires young, promotion seeking employees over experienced employees no longer seeking relocation or career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Customers greatly value long term, experienced contacts in their business transactions. It's a discredit to the company that employees unable or unwilling to move are viewed as failures by some District Level Management.
