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

    Pros

    I learned a lot about customer service and the importance of understanding the product you sell

    Cons

    Internship isn't exactly what they advertise

    Advice to Management

    Put more of a precedence on getting interns out into the field

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a co-op so you have the opportunity to learn more than at a traditional internship
    My manager was extremely flexible, understanding I was in college and had to balance school work and a social life

    Cons

    Sometimes there would be minimal work which could be extremely boring
    Really large company and may seem segmented within department sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Great program! Would be even better if it were rotational

    Pros

    They promote within which give gives each employee equal opportunity for growth. Our managers care about the advancement to higher roles for each new employee.

    Cons

    Each location is a bit different as far as customer base, I believe you must have thick skin to do what we do.

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance with the ability to work remotely. Competitive salary. Good Training opportunities. Benefits are good as well.

    Cons

    Lack of vision by management. Huge turnover. Huge spend on unnecessary "conferences, sales shows, vendor shows". Inexperienced managers promoted inappropriately. Excessive meetings with no knowledge sharing or tangible results. Teams have no support from leadership. Reorg's happen continually due to proper planning and vision. Bad morale.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down layers of managers and hire workers. Train managers on how to lead people not process.

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

    Pros

    During my search for the perfect opportunity by which I could build a career, I visited, and informally interviewed many employees to get their take on the position, company, and life that resulted as a whole. Regardless of whether he was a janitor, or well-established in the upper rung in the corporate hierarchy, I could not find anyone with anything negative to say. The pay and benefits? Fantastic for entry-level and people who work well, are promoted 1-3 positions every few years from the information I gathered. I've just begun, but it appears to be the best choice I've made.

    Cons

    None, so long as you aren't adverse to providing excellent service and lifting gallons of paint (who needs a gym membership? 🤗)

    Advice to Management

    Continue promoting and expanding upon the principles already established

    Pros

    Good 401k match.
    No work pressure.
    Decent work life balance.

    Cons

    Old technologies.
    People doing the same thing for the last 10+ years and they plan to retire with it as well.
    Unfair policies and underhand dealing with private staffing firms, seems to employ people with fake/forged experience again and again inspite of alerting the managers.
