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

    Pros

    Only open Monday- Friday. Good benefits. Okay salary. Work ends when you leave the building.

    Cons

    Automotive Finishes is an exhausting to learn. Always a lot to do; can get burned out easy. Only work with 5 different people can get boring being around the same people. Salary should be better considering the need to relocate to do the program. You have to learn the products so make sure you have an interest in vehicles so it’s not awful to learn

    Advice to Management

    Learn different styles of teaching trainees not everyone learns the same.
