    I worked at Sherwin-Williams part-time

    Pros

    You really get a chance to learn a lot about everything sherwin williams has to offer, from different products and how they are used to what tools are best to use considering the project. There is also plenty of room for growth as long as you have the motivation to do so. The relationships that are built with contractors and the painters are the best!

    Cons

    I didn't like making the sales calls to previous and current customers, it was really uncomfortable. If retail isn't something you're interested in then this isn't the place for you.
