Management. They've been cutting back benefits for all employees crowing about cutting costs, but they've also been publicizing a multi-billion dollar acquirement of Valspar coatings. They also recently brought in an executive who thinks that it's appropriate to treat grown adult employees like children who've spilled juice on the carpet. He stayed at one of our nearby stores for over an hour yelling about a water bottle sitting on the sale's counter hidden from view.

I work very hard and I'm always there. You are looked over in times of promotions and after a while you will want more money for your hard work.

Left to do the exact same thing (Financial Analyst) for another manufacturing company that nearly doubled my salary. I was promoted 3 times during my 5 years with SW but the pay increases were inadequate. They would rather give large starting salaries to new employees than take care of current employees that are performing well.

Lack of communication. Gender biased! Sexual harassment and Human Resources. Yes it’s very hard to get fired but the Company doesn’t thrive on their policies. Company is a complete joke!

Because pf unfair work practices in the warehouses. They work you like an animal and have no respect for your life or family outside of work. Ypu have next to no time off and madatory overtime is always told to employees at the last minute. The managment does nothing and expects the employees to make up the slack.

I left after 21 years. They lack leading by example. While you are working holidays, management is getting paid time off.
Pay blows. In Southern California, they have been in a critical wage crisis for 10 years. When you ask HR or Regional management, they get nasty with you. All the while they are buying luxury homes, cars, and fancy vacations. Average raise is about .30 cents a year raise.
