Typical Day
Manager (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONMarch 31, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: long hours, limited stimulation
Due to the nature of the business, people with higher education will often feel unchallenged and over managed. Although the job does teach you fundamental management skills, it is not meant for University Business graduates.

Great People; Onerous Support
Store Manager (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: great people and environment
Cons: long hours with little support.
In my two years with Sherwin I have found myself the sole full time employee for a store open seven days a week, thirteen hours a day. The works is good, the people are great, the customers are awesome for the most part - but they can't keep the staff they need to support the rest of the employees. Great opportunity for bonus and advancement.

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Brampton, ONFebruary 24, 2014
Pros: the very thankful customers
Cons: slow days
Working at Sherwin Williams allows for you to interact with different customers on a daily basis and help answer any questions they may have, while working with great people. You learn all the important facts about painting and painting techniques which can be passed to the customers. You have great support from a friendly team of co-workers/manager(s). – more... The most difficult part of the job is dealing with frustrated customers, thankfully there are not many of them. The most enjoyable part is the comfortable work environment: the customers that really appreciate your help, the friendly co-workers and the supportive manager(s). – less

Good training
PT Sales Associate (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: good team work
Cons: less hours in the winter
I joined Sherwin-Williams knowing absolutely nothing about paints and primers. Over my days of training I've learned more than what I would have expected. With that being said I can now recommend paints and primers tailored to the customer's needs.

During my time at Sherwin Williams i had the opportunity to travel to different places in the southwestern ontario region which helped with my current job. Sherwin Williams was a good place to work, however my position there held no terms of advancement.

Pros: money, location, hours......

Great atmosphere overall
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Greensboro, NCMarch 27, 2014
Pros: atmosphere, co-workers
Cons: little work/life balance
Overall, it is a great place to work. There is always something to learn, which keeps you focused and engaged in what you are doing. Typically, depending on the location, you are specializing in different markets (painters, furniture finishers, etc.). Co-workers are generically pretty easy to get along with, and everyone is readily available to help – more... you with anything you may need. The hardest part I would say is the customers that you sometimes deal with, but that is to be expected with any customer service position. Overall, some of the people you work with and deal with are the best part. – less

3rd Key Sales Associate (Former Employee), Miami, FLMarch 25, 2014
Pros: discount on merchandise
Cons: no growth within the company
A typical day will start with our commercial customer who comes in for there morning coffee to start their day. While drinking there coffee we gain some conversation of what they have in store for there day. During the conversation there order is being prepared by me or one of my associates. Once there order is finished we help them if needed with there – more... merchandise to there car. That is the beginning of our day. My position in-title more responsibility during a work day. The position as third key withheld responsibility of opening and closing during store hours. All associate also had to have forklift training and no how to handle hazardous materials which we took tests for. When we receive our weekly truck of merchandise we will have to be able to unload the truck with a forklift into inventory. Once our merchandise is received and counted for it's stocked in the warehouse and showcased on the show room floor. That was the hardest part of the job. The easy part was to prepare the orders when there were customers in the store. What I enjoyed was interacting with different customers throughout the day. My co-workers was the reason why twelve years went by so fast working there. They made the work seem effortless by keeping a positive vibe at the workplace. – less

For a first timer in retai, and as a first internship, really great place to work
Intern (Former Employee), Dubuque, IAMarch 18, 2014
Pros: learned a lot, got to learn managerial duties
Cons: erratic break schedule, could be boring at times
As title says, this was my first time in a retail job and it was an experience to say the least. I did not hate it but it was certainly not my cup of tea. The job itself was great. I did learn a lot everyday and could see myself working there. As an internship it was a little lacking but as my first example of an internship I felt it was a great introduction.
