Great Company

Market Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time

ProsWorked in Stores Division and had many great mentors and leaders. Enjoyed opportunity to be a Training Store Manager and share their great training programs. Women's Networking Group is sign of vision and support from upper management/CEO.

ConsAdvancements are upheld by unrealistic sales budgets that don't mirror current market conditions in your area. Your hard work and methods do not count towards promotions, only making your numbers. Also annoying to deal with contractor pricing schedules.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdapt employee promotional criteria to current day practices, update computer systems, and adjust weekend hours so employees can either attend church Saturday evening or Sunday morning.....we don't do much business during those hours because our customers are in church!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
