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

    Pros

    Decent wage for part time job if you are in college/high school.

    Cons

    Warehouse at the store I worked at was almost 100 degrees in the summer and had to unload semi trucks that normally had 40-50 pallets three days a week. Typical corporate retail store.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your store employees

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good and for the most part, so are the employees that you work with. Also, flexible schedules are common to accommodate doctor appointments, school programs, etc.

    Cons

    Change in leadership means a change in culture. No longer feels like a "family" company, but more centered on cost reduction to pay down acquisition debt.

    Advice to Management

    Dump Mission 20/20 - the message to employees is that the company will not provide the necessary resources to perform the job and it is more important to deliver garbage that requires follow up fixes rather than doing things right. After all, isn't it about doing things right and doing things well?

    Pros

    Great company to start your professional career. One can learn a lot about being a leader and setting examples for your team to follow.

    Cons

    It is basically a retail job. May work nights and weekends. Is required to work 44hours a week. Although they say that it is a lot of room for advancement if you are not a spanish speaker your chances seems to be cut in half.

    Advice to Management

    Do not overlook candidates because they do not speak a certain language

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have great Benefits, decent pay, and It is a good work environment in the two store that I worked out of.

    Cons

    The hours can be rough depending on the store that you work out of. In small volume store you may be asked to work 7:45-6:15 by yourself and without a break. Better pack a lunch.

    Advice to Management

    Just because a candidate has a degree and has been with the company for five months does not mean they are worth more than a candidate that has experience and has been with the company for multiple years.

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

    Pros

    Sherwin-Williams is by far the best company I have ever worked for. Everyone you encounter is friendly, supportive and helpful and developing your career. I have 35 years to go before I can retire, and I can't wait to see what's to come with SW.

    Cons

    The only con, but really isn't a con. I would like to have a company-wide meeting and interact with other employees. With such a large company 60k+ employees this is not always possible, but it would be nice to be able to learn from others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.
