    I have been working at Valspar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have really great benefits. The employees are really good people. Easy going management and overall atmosphere. A great place to work.

    Cons

    It gets hot and humid during the summer months. The attendance policy and point system aren't the best and could use some improvement.

    Advice to Management

    I highly suggest hiring a Production Team Lead for each shift. A Production Tech with the authority to oversee and correct any action on the manufacturing floor. An extra set of eyes.

    The strength of any one team is that of its sales force on the ground, utilize the eyes and ears of those who perform for you.
