My co-workers were all really great people to be around. Made work more enjoyable with people I could have conversations with. Some days were slower but the typical day I got to help guide customers through paint buying process. I would help select colours, once they have the colour they want I would find the correct product to suit their personal project. I custom tinted paint products to the selected colour and then mixed the paint. Toughest part of the job was definitely when the store got really busy and you are dealing with more than one customer at a time, it can feel pretty hectic but definitely is alright in the end.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 August 2016
- Long hours: 10 to 12 hour shifts on a weekly basis - No health/dental benefits: even when you work full-time, because this company is franchised - No solid schedule: the schedule changes on a weekly basis, and you are often shifted from store to store, even if it's out of your travel range - Management is impersonal, there is no rapport or connection between management and staff - No direct deposit: hand-written cheques are dropped off on an infrequent basis (not even on the actual payday sometimes) - No set breaks or lunches: lunches are fully paid but you are expected to have a quick bite and then get back to work - You will not feel valued as an employee
Money is given for coffee and snacks per month, decent pay per hour
Long hours, impersonal management, not a professional environment, no set breaks or lunches

Sale Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 July 2015
A typical day at work, I would come in and fill up the paint base into the machine. What I've learned is customer service, organizational skills and time management. Because you need to have time management to know what paint you have to mix and help customer at the same time and during that time. You need to have organizational skills so that you don't get confused with orders. The management team was nice and laid back. They were understandable with everyone's situation. The hardest part of the job was that make your you did get right product for right colour so you don't mix wrong colours to the paint base so that doesn't cost our time and the company's time. The most enjoyable part of the job is watching machine shooting the base colour for the colour mix. It was some how relaxing me.
A fun and yet professional environment to work. A company with great culture and values that promotes a work/life balance.

It is a friendly and yet professional environment to work in.Throughout the years of experience at Benjamin Moore, I have learned a lot and developed skills through hands on experience in different finance and accounting areas. I worked with very kind and helpful staff who wouldn't miss a chance to share their knowledge and expertise. During business trips away from home, we developed strong friendship and partnerships. The management was offering direction and help while leaving room for each one's individual and personal input.

Interior Decorator & Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 May 2014
A typical day consists of reviewing daily cash reports, emails and phone calls,placing inventory orders, answering customer inquiries and offering decorating advice. My co-workers and the contractors that come in are all very friendly and make the work environment enjoyable. The hardest part of my job is dealing the public. Most people are friendly but there are times where an impatient customer can make your day more difficult. But for the most part I end the day feeling good.
Benefits for full-time employees, schedule flexibility, nice people to work with

Key Holder & Paint Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 1 February 2014
I have thoroughly enjoyed working for Benjamin Moore in the past three years.
A typical day at work for me includes opening the store, preparing the tint machine and computers, and helping customers and contractors. My main duties are to ensure the store is tidy and presentable, stock product and assist customers with color, products, paint, stain and any general inquires they may have.
Management at Benjamin Moore is excellent. I've always received appropriate feedback based on my performance, and always feel appreciated as an employee. They also listen to my concerns and continue to encourage me to further my education.
The hardest part of the job is moving all the paint product around when we decide to remodel the store.
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with customers on their big and small projects. I love giving people advice and assurance that they will be happy with the final product.
SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 9 August 2012
First thing in the a.m. pallets of paint may arrive,if it is not busy with customers we start to verify,unload and put away the product. The phone is usually ringing and someone will rush to answer it. The call is either for the Decorator , a phone order or a problem. The call is either transferred, resolved or the order prepared. If it's an order, the paint is pulled from the shelf, tinted, shaken and boxed ready for pick up. The door alarm will ding signifying a customer entering the store. Since we are a high end store we require a great deal of knowledge re products and application. A typical customer wants help choosing colours, picking the best product for the job and a lower price than we offer!The best part of the job is picking colours that make the client's home a showplace or a zen place, whichever look they are after. The hardest part is continual heavy lifting and standing on cement floors all day.
