    I have been working at The BEHR Paint Company full-time

    Pros

    Behr Paint Company is a company that says “welcome to the family.” I have felt like a member of the Behr Paint family since day one. When I started with Behr, I was new to the paint industry, coming from the medical world. But the Behr culture promotes product knowledge by providing extensive, hands-on training, and the company has created valuable tools such as mobile apps and videos to make this information easily...

    I have been working at The BEHR Paint Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to work , started out at Home Depot few years back and already had a great relationship with my Behr rep. Incredibly welcoming into the company, they made me feel right at home, and I have never been taken care of by a company. Behr truly cares for their associates, sooner rather then later these associates become family. Behr is only going up from here. Can’t wait to see where Behr will take me in the upcoming...

    Cons

    You almost feel obligated to carry your work phone and iPad at all times, it doesn’t bother most because numbers are constantly changing and any moment a contractor / property management could place an order that could improve your numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more HUB reps. Contractors Are constantly needing someone in paint they can count on, some stores do have hub reps but many don’t. Many contractors mentioned that’s why they prefer a Paint store, hire more hub reps that can attend to contractors and it’s game over. Behr has a excellent name already and seeing a hub rep in every Home Depot would not only raise morale and bring in sales but every Home Depot paint associate...

    I have been working at The BEHR Paint Company full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Fellow employees enjoy the culture and most get along well with each other.

    Cons

    Recent very poor choices in middle and upper management. No respect for experienced industry people that are currently employed.

    Advice to Management

    You just put a person into a job that they are absolutely not qualified for. And to make it worse this same person quit Behr 3 years ago to work for a direct industry competitor. After failing at that job he went to work for a company where they purchased $2+ Million from Behr’s largest competition and $3K from Behr. He also spent most of his time bad mouthing Behr to everyone he met along the way. Now he’s back and he...

    I have been working at The BEHR Paint Company full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Schedule is favorable Job security Great Perks

    Cons

    Pay scale is poor at best - raises have been horrible three years running despite "record numbers" Managers choose obvious favorites in a lot of the candidates they pick, leading to a sub par sales team in some territories.

    Advice to Management

    Take the in store team off this required sales force agenda. You have dedicated pro reps and hub reps managing business. Stop spreading your guys so thin. Also, give people real raises if you want to motivate them YoY. Behr as a whole is a great company but they seem caught up in the shareholders > all mentality and that's really hurting your sales team morale.

    So you get paid like 18.15 an hour.

    Cons

    stress level, it is like high school. There is not really any room for growth. They promote based on who they like the best. Re-work is major and you need to be perfect on every call.

    I have been working at The BEHR Paint Company full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Behr is a growing company always looking for good and talented people. One of their main qualifiers is how the candidate will fit into the Behr culture. This company values its employees, and the people are proud to work here. I’ve worked for other companies (mostly paint), and always felt like I didn’t have a voice let alone was appreciated. Behr wants to hear from the employees which is why they regularly send out...

    Cons

    I work in sales which can be stressful in any job. People don’t really leave the company so advancement opportunities don’t arise often.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to add hub stores. This is where we have the best opportunity to win and take market share.

    A great place to work with minimal pressure and plenty of work life balance.

    Cons

    There is an overall lack of urgency, which leads to missed or extended deadlines and a failure to prioritize.

    Advice to Management

    Choose 3-5 projects that will push the company forward each year. Share these with the team and make sure the management team is focused on ensuring the success of those key projects. The team needs direction to be successful.

    Pros

    They have a generous vacation policy.

    Cons

    They are completely incompetent at preforming their duties. HR represententives for certain departments have no knowledge of that department’s job descriptions. As a result, they are always giving wrong directions and “advice” that just makes a mess of everything, especially for Sales and R&D.

    Advice to Management

    Stop contradicting your departments and listen to what they have to say. They know better than you!
