Williams, Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – September 18, 2017
Sherwin is a well run company that gets very hectic at times. When I worked for them there had been some pretty rough weather and lots of people needed paint for their homes. Throughout the day you are making orders and helping customers. At times it can be overwhelming but at the end of the day its pretty rewarding. I loved my coworkers and management and I was always treated fairly.
Management was very personable, the work was very easy and at times it was fast paced. Great customers relations. Customers would ask me for advice on all sorts of different projects.The hours were great the management worked around my home life schedule. Handled big accounts for painting companies. Twice a week I would unload pallets off a truck with a fork lift that was very fun. The hardest part of my job was unloading products off the pellets and onto the sales floor.
Interesting and fun place to work. Go through 6 months of training and chances to move up to getting a third key to open and close the store other than the manager and assistant manager. Fun people to work with, can't move up to manager position without degree.

Sherwin Williams is the best company I have worked for. I have had the opportunity to transfer to different locations depending on where I was going to school. A small staff helps give working at the store a family feel.
Productive and fun working environment with friendly staff

I enjoyed working for Sherwin Williams. It was nice working with regular customers and maintaining a rapport with them. Managers made sure I got the experience and training needed to do my job successfully. The staff was fun easy-going group of people to work with. Overall I had a pleasant working experience with Sherwin Williams. Its a wonderful company to be apart of as a customer or employee.

They don't offer raises or advancement to anybody who's isn't already in a management position. They reward poor managers who have terrible numbers while failing to retain exemplary talent. Their wages are very poor in a management track, especially for a company that requires a business degree. Their favored tactic is to take someone fresh out of college and barely retain them for 2 years at a very low wage.

The Sherwin-Williams Company recently went through an acquisition phase. I do enjoy working with the company but things have been chaotic for a time (as expected). I would recommend this company to others as I enjoy the culture and the management. It is a very hierarchal corporation, top-down.
