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

Pros

Better than average part time pay and generally they were fairly flexible with my school schedule, I also got a company matched 401k and paid vacation time each year. Overall a pretty good job.

Cons

Very small staff in each store makes it difficult to call out sick if you need to as it places a great strain on those who are working. Also for the pay they expect a lot more out of you than most and you only get one raise a year which isn't much. I have worked for four years and I started at $10.50 and I just now got a decent raise to 11.80 because I took on more reasonability and became a key holder. They really work you to the bone when you are on the lower tier.

Advice to Management

Empower lower level employees and have friendlier work environments.

    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.
