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

    Pros

    Fantastic company! They know how to treat their employees right, their pay is great, and they offer support down to the lowest level of employment.

    Cons

    They are too good to be true.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the management would be, if someone has proven themselves and keep doing so then they are the person to keep. Last hired first fired should not be the rule.
