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

Very positive working enviroment and nice customers.
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.

Lead Hub Driver (Former Employee), Dalton, GAMarch 18, 2014
Pros: spent alot of my time on the open road.
Cons: having to deliver heavy loads.
Load my truck and go out and deliver paint products to customers. i learned how to talk to customers and listen to the needs of the customers. I had a amazing management team and still to this day we stay in contact. My coworkers at the time where the best. The hardest part about my job had to of been the over sized loads of paint and the unsafe areas – more... were we had to deliver to. The most enjoyable part of my job had to of been just being on the open road never stayed in the building to much. – less

Fun place to work but not in my career path
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Charlottesville, VAMarch 16, 2014
Pros: fun co-workers
Cons: not what i wanted for a career
I took on a job with Sherwin Williams after college because of the relationships I made with them while interning with College Works Painting. I did not find myself desiring to be promoted within the company, at the time it was just a stepping stone.

The Sherwin Williams branch here in Charlottesville, VA is the busiest branch in the mid-atlantic because – more... of the rapid growth of the city. So this is where I began to learn what it took to work in such a busy environment.

The most fun part of the job was interacting with my co-workers and the commercial customers I saw frequently. – less

customer service (Former Employee), Novi, MIMarch 16, 2014
A typical day at work would be helping customers with specific paint selections. Mixing paint, customer service and handling the cash register. Management was wonderful and very hands on and helpful with any questions that came their way. Co workers were team players and for the most part worked very well with each other. the hardest part was handling – more... difficult customers. the most enjoyable part was interacting with people on a daily basis. – less
