hot, fast paced warehouse work. alot of overtime and mandated weekends
Warehouse Technician (Former Employee) –  Effingham, ILJune 13, 2019
I worked there for 14 years and it steadily got progressively worse from year to year. the pay and benefits are alright but you work hard on a difficult production system. There is a lot of mandatory overtime including weekends. Expect 12 hour work days from the end of March till the middle of October with Saturday work required regularly.

Decent Job Coming Right Out of College
Store Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 12, 2019
Typical say requires answering at least a dozen phon calls and helping at least 20 customers in person daily.

Physically taxing job with long hours.

Compensation is decent but isn't good enough at the ASM position.

The culture in the stores is the best part about the job. Good people, just not the best work.

Middle management gets caught up with the numbers and forgets about the people sometimes.

6/10 experience overall.
Pros
decent pay, hours may suit some people.
Cons
work hours, and physicality of the job

Productive work days, always work to do, god pay.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Waco, TXJune 12, 2019
At Sherwin-Williams DSC there was always work to do which meant job security. Working here I learned how to operate a forklift, high lift, and cherry picker. Typical work day was pretty busy. Hardest part of the job was working overnight. The most enjoyable part of work was reaching production and going above that. Management was cool, could have been better on how the handle situations.
Pros
Free lunch, meeting new people
Cons
Only had one 30 minute break, worked 12 hours days 3 days out of 5 due to work load.

Great company to grow your career.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 12, 2019
Sherwin Williams is a great company to work for. As an assistant manager I work in a very fast past environment while prioritizing and efficiently managing multiple tasks at once. In my daily / weekly tasks, I supported all aspects of store operations, including customer service, marketing, merchandising, inventory and store safety. I also grew wholesale business by conducting effective sales calls. As well as managed the stores financial reports, credit and accounts receivable performance, scheduling and inventory control.
This job is very rewarding and has helped me succeed and grow.

its okay
Sales Operations Specialist (Current Employee) –  Torrance, CAJune 11, 2019
its okay to work there. Management needs to be better at being aware of the needs of their employees. Too much emphasis on meeting goals that are almost impossible to meet.

Was not treated well, and was very unhappy
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Salisbury, MDJune 11, 2019
I was told by my district manager that Military Leadership school did not amount to anything. Very Very disrespectful. They are all about hiring outside. I was in the Training store, in which we trained the soon to be managers. I was denied a Assistant Manager position, but was skilled enough to help train them.
Pros
Great Benefits
Cons
They Do not promote within. They Promote from outside. Military Leadership means nothing.

Work hard / play hard
SALES REPRESENTITIVE (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJune 11, 2019
Great company that makes you put in the blood, sweat and tears before you get the dream job. Working in the stores can be difficult at times but also very rewarding. They weed out a lot of lazy employees at the store level. The hard workers get promoted to much more rewarding roles. They promote from within and reward those that work hard.
Pros
The people are awesome.
Cons
Working in the stores can be draining sometimes

Too Political
Production Technician (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 10, 2019
Company is too political more concerned with production than the employees training and wellbeing, they treat you as a number, and not as a person mostly derives from a push from the top and managers who have no back bone, and rather push the employee rather than take time to train. In manufacturing it usually safety, quality and production, but all they push is production, and only address the other too when something goes wrong then it back to the push.!!
Pros
Fair Benifits, and Compensation.!!
Cons
They do not care for the employee nor offer proper training
