    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I am a part time sales associate with Sherwin Williams and I have a positive outlook on the company.
    Flexible consistent hours
    I feel close with my coworkers
    Company has a good reputation in the industry and customers recognize that.
    Overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    Not too many cons here. The training was a little rushed and underdeveloped in my opinion. I don’t always feel like I fully know what I am talking about when discussing products with customers, but that will come in time.

    Advice to Management

    Focus a little more effort on training. Other than that great.

    Good experience; inclusive team (depending on where you are); great training programs; opportunity to grow.

    Tough schedule; lack of work life balance; can be physically demanding from time to time; male dominant industry - potentially hostile working environment (again, it depends on which location you work at).

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time

    Pros

    Outstanding company to work for with great benefits and real good work/life balance

    Cons

    Advancement can be a little slow

    Advice to Management

    I think upper management could do better in not undercutting PRC's on national accounts that would otherwise give their reps a fighting chance to make their bonus structure.

    Pros

    A company that helps build professional development skills with each employee, leadership is always motivating employees to perform at their best ability, internal promotions, relocation opportunities

    Cons

    "Old School" business environment, does not cater to millennial employees

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
