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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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 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.

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams as an intern

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my summer internship experience with Sherwin Williams! Excellent hands on experience and there are definitely advancement opportunities if you chose to pursue them. I got along great with my Manager. Perfect job for someone who enjoys being on the move and on their feet. It was a refreshing blend of white and blue collar work almost.

    Some of the hours may not be the most ideal. Depending on how patient you are to move up you may have to move around quite a bit.
