Pros

Sherwin-Williams is a long established compnay with a great track record for hiring good people. Everyday is different, operating a store is enjoyable, providing above and beyond customer service, full benefits with bonus potential. Overall it is a great company to start at and if you want to stay you can definitely move up. Flexible schedule.

Cons

It takes a while to move up the ranks unless you are a real go getter but even then the chips need to fall in the right places. Sales calls, not quite cold calling, but practically. Working weekends and holidays, despite having a flexible schedule.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of the people who are the face of SW. The management teams in all of the stores across the country. Without them, the company will suffer.

    Pros

    Great "stepping stone" for a real career later. Very structured, lots of support, but micromanaged. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Unreasonable demands consumarate to the compensation. 60-70 hour work weeks are quite common during the summer months. This is essentially a retail management position so you work weekends, holidays, etc...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From a stock-holder's perspective, I think you are incredible!! As an employee, you could definitely loosen the pursestrings and staff the stores accordingly.
