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

Pros

Great "stepping stone" for a real career later. Very structured, lots of support, but micromanaged. Decent benefits.

Cons

Unreasonable demands consumarate to the compensation. 60-70 hour work weeks are quite common during the summer months. This is essentially a retail management position so you work weekends, holidays, etc...

Advice to Management

From a stock-holder's perspective, I think you are incredible!! As an employee, you could definitely loosen the pursestrings and staff the stores accordingly.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If your a minority or a woman , then your golden. If you bust your tail and dont get shafted by upper management then you have the ability to make bonus.

    Cons

    NO family life at all. You get hours off not days. You have no staff and are alone alot. All non fulltime employees are completely cut on hours so if you had a good employee they quit because Connor,Davidson, and other big wigs care more about their wallet than employees. LOOOOOONG hours for a paint store. Lack of pay for required job.

    Advice to Management

    Care a little more. Dont make up new policies about how to stock the warehouse because women have a hard time doing it. Cut these dumb hours back and give people a freaking day off.

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

    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.
