The reason I no longer work there is because they shut down our Kansas City operation so my position was no longer needed.

Resolution Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIJanuary 5, 2016
Not enough compensation for the type of work being done and the amount of work being done. Management is not very approachable. Do not feel like I was provided enough training to do my job efficiently.

Nice Work Place
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  illinoisDecember 8, 2015
Valspar is an overall great place to work. The people are kind and genuinely care about others. The negatives are that a lot of people don't separate work/home life and it is rather difficult to move up within the company.
Pros
nice people
Cons
no room to advance your career

It is a very nice place to work. The work-life balance is great, however the subject matter is a bit dull. It is studying how paint dries.

Fun and productive learning experience
Intern (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PANovember 13, 2015
Fun and encouraging coworkers. You learn that all the research and development are part of something big. And the coworkers are just as friendly and enthusiastic about chemistry as you. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you get a sense of ownership with the project you work on and you learn about the variables of polymer science.
Pros
Great work environment and enthusiastic coworkers
Cons
Employees are over qualified for their jobs

Global Company with good benefits
customer service representative (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MINovember 10, 2015
It's like getting into Fort Knox (very difficult), but the turnover is crazy. It is like a phone factory. You never really feel like you are a valued employee, more like a seat filler. It's heartbreaking when you give a job your all and feel little recognition for your hard work. There are some amazing supervisors and employees. Their benefit package is good and their vacation and PTO package is even better. Try not to get too attached, they don't really care about you as a person or employee.
Pros
Lots of PTO
Cons
No job security

DEMANDING BUT FAIR
MANAGING DIRECTOR - FAR EAST (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNOctober 4, 2015
Excellent Company with strong Management.

No such thing as a "Typical Day".

24/7 required to manage a Business unit with over 300 customers and revenue of $90+ m covering an area twice a big as the U.S.A.

Understanding on how to read a P & L is a must.

With over 800 employees of all ages, Race, Creed & Religion it is mandatory to have a strong understanding of various customs and to respect same.

Hardest part of job is communicating correctly in various Languages and dialects along with communicating all relevent information to Headquarters 12 time zones away.

Most enjoyable part of the job is Traveling and meeting people from all parts of the world.
Pros
Excellant compensation
Cons
24/7

Can require to many hours
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Statesville, NCSeptember 6, 2015
The job its self is not bad, but during the busy season you can easily spent 70 hours a week there. Management is easy to talk to if you have an issue and they are willing to let you change your hours around if you have appointments or something to do. Overall I like the job.

Valspar is a great company to work for especially the environment and teamwork everyone contributes. Being a contractor like many, Valspar treats everyone equally and provides everyone the flexibility they need.
