    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time

    Pros

    Great money, benefits, and room to move up in the company. Sherwin Williams is everywhere so there is opportunity to transfer to new areas.

    Cons

    It's retail... So customers can be difficult at times. If you are not a sales type of person this might not be the best fit. There is a focus on sales calls and obviously keeping track of your sales and budget.

    Advice to Management

    Be positive, patient and do whatever you can do to teach your employees your job so they can be ready to move up.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, plenty of advancement opportunity, Experienced management, lively work environment. This part time job had everything I needed when I was working during school. We became a family in the short time I was there.

    Cons

    Sometimes work could get heavy. College campuses have a turnover season just like many other careers, which means companies may need large quantities of paint in a day's notice.

    Advice to Management

    There was really no advice I could give to my managers besides separating business from personal. The management at the store and out of the store were always looking to help with anything they could.

    Pros

    This job is a fast passed job. Good hours.

    Cons

    Not enough employees
    Pay is decent but not great
    Use to feel like they cared about their employees, now it seems they only care about the money.

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees feel like you want them there. Not just a pawn in your board game.
