I worked at Sherwin-Williams part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Decent pay for retail/good benefits. In my experience the people were great to work with and relatively good hours and flexibility during college. You learn lots of practical knowledge about painting.

Cons

Cons are the same with many retail/customer service jobs. People can be difficult to deal with at times. Management is micro-managing more and more during the recent years and has unrealistic expectations of what the store associates can get done in a day.

Advice to Management

It is impossible to make every store work using the same broad policies. The averages of huge spreadsheets are not the most profitable method for determining every decision the store has to make. Give more power to the individual store and you will see sales rise.

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

    Pros

    It's always nice to help people pick out colors for new homes inside and out.

    Cons

    micro managment, they have unrealistic expectations of what can be done when you are forced to work alone all the time. Morals of upper management about passing the buck is awful.

    Advice to Management

    They need to spend some time on the weekends to give advice and help to customers and employees. Since the Obama care a maximum of 25 hours per week is all you can get. raises are a joke. After 10+ years i barely make more than the new guy off the street.
