Business Procurement Manager (Former Employee) – Wheeling, IL – February 24, 2017
I enjoyed my time developing and learning from upper management on the Architectural paint division and was able to participate in the company driven Lean Six Sigma program. In the Lean Six Sigma program, I completed an intense green belt training program.

Productive wok place with opportunity to show my skills

Order Selector/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Lebanon, PA – February 20, 2017
Worked here for a short time as a temp and pay was ok but hours were insane. If you have a family I wouldn't recommend working here you have no life but work. management was also bad they didn't want to hear about any problems you were having.
Production Planner (Current Employee) – Menomonee Falls, WI – February 9, 2017
Working at a plant is much more high-paced than an office setting. Never bored and always something new to learn every day. Downside is corporate does not take the time to understand each plant's capabilities.
2nd Shift Lead (Current Employee) – Romeoville, IL – February 6, 2017
The management style is very demanding. There are too many people trying to be in charge, especially those who don't have any authority. There also, needs to be a better transition between both 1st and 2nd shift.
I liked working there but wasn't really secure with job longevity
Batch Maker/Filling Operator (Former Employee) – Matteson, IL – January 25, 2017
My experience was great as a worker until it came time to hire. I went through a temp service and unfortunately the temp service's contract ended leaving me in a awkward predicament. I thought I had a good enough relationship with my supervisor and manager that the transaction would be smooth to permanent placement. Instead I lost the job completely even though I worked well and was well liked. Just unfair overall.
Great company to work for and they know how to take care of their employees
Sales (Former Employee) – Mooresville, NC – January 10, 2017
I enjoyed my time with Valspar. They take pride in their sales force and give them the tools and knowledge to succeed in a very competitive market. I have learned a lot from my years there that have helped me to succeed in my future endeavors.
Trips, meals, expense account, great informational meetings
Competative environment with little social integration
Quality Assurance Manager II (Current Employee) – Garland, TX – December 4, 2016
A day at Valspar is met with copious task oriented activities that always seem to outnumber the number of employees or sophisticated systems available to complete said tasks. It is a regular challenge to guide the business into areas of growth and improvement as most groups struggle to work together. Most of the employees there are nice, but are left to defend themselves and their positions with little support from management. The most enjoyable part of my job is influencing and mentoring young minds, as there seems to be an endless supply of new employees that need guidance due to the high level of turnover.
The company pays slightly below average; however, the benefits are unparralelled. It is inexpensive and covers an unrealistic amount. I have been gone for two years and still get small amounts into my 401K. They covered 100% of prenatal care, so my wife and I spent only co-pays for all visits, $0, to my wife's OB like 5 or 6 times during her pregnancy. She was hospitalized multiple times and including child birth and stay we spent under $1000 for the entire pregnancy. I got fillings in 4 teeth, all my wisdom teeth pulled including oral surgery for 2 and my cost was around $200. I cannot understate how much the benefits with this company made up for any low amount of salary. The work was solid. They expected great results, but they provided everything needed. Also, my position came with $10/day for lunches, plus any amount needed for sales lunches.
Free lunches, great benefits, company car, technology provided
