    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, decent salary, job ladder that is clearly defined and obtainable for most, for a "people" person this is a very fulfilling job

    Cons

    Store hours (weekends, sometimes late nights), on your feet most of the day (can be seen as a benefit to some), as a manager you are expected to work nearly 50 hours and sometimes this is not enough, assistants - 44 hours, product line is extensive and difficult to learn, corporate people are not always available when you need them, technology in stores is outdated and slow
