Not very enthusiastic place to work not alot of team work
Production Tech (Former Employee), Covington gaJune 21, 2015
Pros: Breaks
Cons: Everything. ..pay, management, working holidays
Long hours and hard work, not good management, don't care about the employees. Always looking for the bad in workers. Pay is not good. ..temporary employees makes the same as a full time employee. ..that's crazy. Every 6 months you get a raise. So in about 2 years you will be at $15.00...Wow

Sales Representative -The Paint Drop (Current Employee), Lombard, ILApril 9, 2015
Pros: Good pay and benefits
Cons: Unrealistic sales goals, resources not readily available, products not up to par, many products are not available that would easily be found with competitors, too much micromanagement, jobs
I enjoy being able set my hours, but if I wanted to be realistic I am on call 24/7 even on vacation time away. My job is a Outside Sales Representative however I do sales, deliveries, orders and processing. I will be contacted my consumers first thing in the morning to as late as midnight, weekends off and even out of town. The position is definitely demanding and does not consist of any true clarity – more... as to who is in charge of what, it is more a shared job responsibility between location manager, sales representative and driver. I wish we had the resources and the products to really make this job a success as to which I came into this from the beginning stages to help build this company to something great with my knowledge and experience. Unfortunately much has been ignored and workers have been hired outside of the industry who are not familiar with this industry and not have been properly trained to understand what or how they should go about learning how to better the company with the skills they bring to the company. Anyway, if things don't turn around this company is looking at a lot more loss than they already experiencing. – less

Great Job
Mobile Paint Specialist (Former Employee), FLDecember 22, 2014
This is another great job with a chance to learn something new. I had never worked in a paint store before and they gave me a chance. It was new division for the company so there were a few problems but we all pulled together and made the best of it. The only reason I left was to move back to attend school.

A great place to work for!
Territory Manager (Current Employee), MichiganSeptember 2, 2014
Valspar is a great place to work for! Every day is different, from presenting to a multi chain corporation, conducting a day long training for 50 to setting a store. The best part of my job are my relationships with my customers and distributor representatives.

Some nice pros but lots of negatives
Territory Manager (Current Employee), Minneapolis, MNAugust 4, 2014
Pros: lunches, car, expense account
Cons: to reactive rather than proactive, consistantly making themselves look good at expense of the people actually doing the work, too many other issues to list.
Fast paced ever changing day. Management wants schedules, sales plans etc. but they don't mean anything because company is reactive rather than pro active. Good co workers, upper management is not with it.
This job used to be good but now it is unbearable!

Never typical as my position was ever evolving
Manufacturing Support/Coordinator (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCMarch 31, 2014
Pros: i feel this job opened a lot of doors for me
Cons: i worked in a manufacturing plant without windows for five years
I started as an Admin answering phones and the such, took over HR for a period, taking applications, panel interviewing, going over benefits and compensation with new with employees. Once they hired a HR Manager I went on to work creating the chemical routings for daily orders, and ordering materials for the batches our workers would make for powder orders. Worked with MSDS sheets and I was given the – more... opportunity to take any classes that would benefit me in my job, paid for by the company with the EmployersAssociation of Charlotte and Purdue. This was when I was given the opportunity to take over ISO documentation which was my primary job and I loved it! This position taught me a lot, I learned the importance of detail, time management, I learned to work without supervision and the feeling of accomplishment when our plants passed their ISO Audits. I throughly enjoyed this aspect of my job. I may have not gotten the proverbially pat on the back but when I was responsible for keeping our ISO Certifications, I was fulfilled. – less

Long hours, very labor intensive, dusty, high-turnover
Production Technician (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: great pay, rotating schedule, benefits
Cons: high turn-over, long shifts, labor-intensive, dusty
Management is somewhat disorganized. The picture they paint to you at the beginning is not the reality. This place has high turn-over because of poor management, and lots of politics. The work is hard. If you get a line operator position, plan on being wet almost every day you go to work. Not fun during the cold months especially. Breaks are ok, but can be short. Pay is decent. This facility produces dust, so plan on being dusty from head to toe almost every day.

Warehouse Technician (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAAugust 28, 2013
The great thing about working for that company was that we had great team work skills, when it was time to have to push out more due to a heavier work load we came together and got it done.

Financially stable company with expanding name recognition
Lead Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 20, 2013
Pros: group outings
Cons: sometimes working 5 different start hours in the same week
Providing solutions to customer's problems in a fast paced call center. I learned that in order to solve the really difficult problems, being flexible works better than using a singular approach.
The management was transitory, The co-workers were great, independent minded, and fun to work with. They required very little supervision.
The hardest aspect of the job was listening to customers who were elderly and destitute, requiring help that I could not provide.
The best part of the job was our group outings
