    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good people getting bent over, overall I saw a lot of hard working people getting poisoned, working in non osha approved facilities, and bot surviving, I made twice as much in one year of leaving

    Cons

    Everything else, good leadership is non existent in most districts, the staff is promised advancement and in five cases I've seen it take 5-9 years to make 17.50 an hour as an assistant, five more years for a manager, maybe. Good Looks defiantly seem to help also :/

    Advice to Management

    Look within, promote within, think about your stakeholders more than just the shareholders
