Horrible Company
ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee), Salisbury, MAFebruary 12, 2014
They treat their employees terribly. Company is constantly changing policies and not properly training or equipping staff for the changes. Managers are given too much free reign and not held properly accountable.

Nice balance between contractors and DIY customers
Market Manager (Former Employee), Westerly, RIFebruary 10, 2014
Day-to-day store management with short staff. Learned to accommodate varied caliber of paint customers. The hardest part of the job only occurred occasionally when through sheer happenstance, more service was necessary than our staff of 2-3 could keep up with. One rewarding aspect was a perfect paint color match for a retail customer through custom – more... tinting. – less

High energy, demanding yet rewarding company
Store Manager (Former Employee), Saint Joseph, MOJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: health and retirement benefits
Cons: hours, retail envirnment
Very physical days. Moving, mixing, shaking paint containers up to 80lbs in weight. You need good oral and written skills as well as being a good listener. You deal with both wholesale and retail customers, some who know what they need, but most who do not. Company has good advancement opportunities and excellent health retirement benefits. Open seven – more... days a week so the hours can be difficult at times. – less

Awesome sales experience
Lead Sales Associate (Current Employee), Bothell, WAJanuary 25, 2014
Pros: free lunches every once in a while, great benefits, lots of hours in the summer yet little in the winter
Cons: little hours in the winter, paint is heavy.
Awesome place to build great sales experience. This one of the few places I can say that has a fantastic search department to find answers to questions that you may not know. Building rapport with contractors, helping home owners pick out paint and paint colors. You learn it all. Everyone was extremely friendly. I would say the most challenging task – more... is working during the summer months when the store is at it's peak business level. I loved knowing that I was impacting the community around me by what I was doing at work. Whether that was helping out a recently widowed women sell her house and move back home, or convincing the most stubborn of contractors to try a new product. – less

It is the dream job and company to work for.....
Technician I (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJanuary 10, 2014
Pros: training
Showing up to work, knowing the world is in your hands to make colorful, is the best feeling ever felt. The people there weren't people, they are family. The hardest part of the job was not being a part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was being part of the SW Family.

Management Trainee (Information Technology) (Former Employee), New Delhi, DLJanuary 10, 2014
My typical day was running production and helping others with issues they might be having. I got all of my machining experience at Honeywell, hands-on. Co-workers were pretty good people for the most part. The exception being the gossip and things that tend to come in a factory environment in that part of the country.

Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJanuary 4, 2014
Every day is exciting. You will learn about everything you need to know to run a successful paint store. Management is helpful and aggressive. Co-workers are generally smart and friendly. The hardest part of the job is working while understaffed. It is rewarding to help others in this line of work.
