Great Environment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Clovis, CAAugust 27, 2015
I love my job. The group I am working with are all approximately the same age as myself, and each and every co-worker/manager has the desire to not only be successful, but also enjoy themselves as they do. After painting for 2 years prior to working here, I already had a base value of the use of many different materials, and the fact that all of my coworkers embraced my knowledge and bounced ideas off of me was very uplifting and created a sense of fondness for my associates and the company I work for. Work is tough, there are some days where I am asked to unload pallets full of 70lb buckets of paint, and others where I am asked to politely deal with a customer who requires patience, however this is a very enjoyable place to work.

Hardworking, productive days with dependable coworkers
SALES ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Marietta, GAAugust 26, 2015
Hardworking place that require drive and motivation. Everyday you learn something new and useful to help further my experience. The days are also well spent with management that trust in you to do what's right in the store. There are times that customers start to flood the store but my helpful coworkers and I always stay cool and approach the situation accordingly.

Store Manager (Current Employee), Glenview, ILAugust 26, 2015
Long Hours. Nights and Weekends. If your store is understaffed which most likely is you can find yourself working 13 hour days and not getting paid for it. Bonus structure is soft. Only great thing about the company is its benefits.

Good place to work
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Gulfport, MSAugust 25, 2015
Great place to work. The work is not very hard and the training you receive helps you along the way. The only issue is that if you dont know the right people or brown nose enough than the advancement opportunities are limited.

It's an okay job
part time sales (Current Employee), txAugust 25, 2015
They don't really care about the part timers. I work my butt off. Run my boss errands. And all I get is a blank stare. Whenever I try to make sales, a manager swoops in and takes it. I don't even get to finish the transaction. They won't teach me and they rush me.

Lead responsibility (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDAugust 24, 2015
As a Part-Time Key Holder, I was given a note worthy amount of responsibility which has expounded upon my training as a manager. Given the responsibility and authority to make decisions based on the store future needs such as: Inventory Levels, Scheduling, Lead Generation Call/Follow- Ups, and etc.

Third-Key Associate (Former Employee), Depew, NYAugust 24, 2015
This was a part-time paint sales job which was a stepping stone into management. I left Sherwin Williams in 2010 because of the lack of available advancement.

Interesting Company
Third Key Sales Associate (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLAugust 20, 2015
Was a great company till I got in my accident. They continued to try and find ways to fire me. I was in my crash while on the job didn't get compensation for the 4 weeks I was out. They tried to rush me to return to work even without a doctors note stating I could return. Loved my coworkers Would not go back.

Pros: Listening to the radio while driving.

Co-workers are fine. A typical day is to to load up the previous days left-over runs . Then go from there .I made delivery's in all kinds of weather , and learned the city very well. Driving was the enjoyable part of the job , loading and unloading the difficult part .

Great place to work for and good staff
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Southaven, MSAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Good salary, flexible hours, president club for store managers and rep
Cons: Sometimes you may end up working under a lazy store manager as an assistant
It is a great company to work for, the hours are flexible. The company is like a close nit family, you ended up knowing mostly everyone in your district or network fast. The customers can be a little bit overwhelming sometimes, they seem to always get there way with the company.

Just run the sales floor, as a sales associate sometimes have to do some deliveries to local painters. Overall nice working job. Can get a little overwhelming once you get slammed with huge orders and people come in at the same time but not too bad.
