    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best part of working at sherwin williams was the other employees. Almost every one that works there is very fun and friendly. It is important to be a team when working in this store, and mostly everyone that works with Sherwin will have your back.

    Cons

    There are times when the job can be extremely stressful. There can be distraught customers, it can get overwhelming, or the hub can be slow delivering inventory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of the biggest thing Sherwin should work on is getting a better delivery service.

    Pros

    Sherwin Williams whole-heartedly believes that a good work-life balance is important for keeping employees happy and hard working. They have worked hard to make sure my personal life also is balanced so that I can stay happy and successful in my job. sherwin Williams is also great at promoting managerial positions from within.

    Cons

    One challenge is that the paint stores are open long hours, 7 days a week and sometimes this means hours of overtime for management of the stores. The opportunities for growth also seem to be less for part-time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice for upper management. It is clear that they know what they're doing and I am just with them to learn from them.

    I learned a lot about business in 15 years. It's still a decent company, but not the same as it was 15 years ago.

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The training and benefits offered are excellent. Overall, it's a solid company to work for.

    Cons

    The work/life balance can be very difficult to find. It's not the same company that it was 15 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They seem to be hiring a bunch of "yes men" for the management and rep positions now. Middle and upper management want to sit back and pull the strings while the front line takes the bullets. It wasn't always this way. Go back to hiring qualified people that can make real field level decisions.
