Intern (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PA – November 13, 2015
Pros: Great work environment and enthusiastic coworkers
Cons: Employees are over qualified for their jobs
Fun and encouraging coworkers. You learn that all the research and development are part of something big. And the coworkers are just as friendly and enthusiastic about chemistry as you. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you get a sense of ownership with the project you work on and you learn about the variables of polymer science.
customer service representative (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MI – November 10, 2015
Pros: Lots of PTO
Cons: No job security
It's like getting into Fort Knox (very difficult), but the turnover is crazy. It is like a phone factory. You never really feel like you are a valued employee, more like a seat filler. It's heartbreaking when you give a job your all and feel little recognition for your hard work. There are some amazing supervisors and employees. Their benefit package is good and their vacation and PTO package is even better. Try not to get too attached, they don't really care about you as a person or employee.

Pros: good bonuses
Cons: forever changing safety polocies
Was a great place to work, however a dramatic change in management caused some changed that altered that dynamic. Had a good incentives program and a very strong safety culture. Was a small team in the store which meant e all needed to play our part to get the job done!

Warehouse Associate (Current Employee), Statesville, NC – September 6, 2015
The job its self is not bad, but during the busy season you can easily spent 70 hours a week there. Management is easy to talk to if you have an issue and they are willing to let you change your hours around if you have appointments or something to do. Overall I like the job.
NETWORK ANALYST (Current Employee), Minneapolis, MN – August 31, 2015
Valspar is a great company to work for especially the environment and teamwork everyone contributes. Being a contractor like many, Valspar treats everyone equally and provides everyone the flexibility they need. It is fun working for Valspar because everyone is very friendly and they will always introduce new hire to everyone in the team and also give them the comfort level they need.
Operator (Former Employee), Marengo, IL – July 2, 2015
Pros: Healthcare benefits
Cons: Short breaks, short staffed, starting pay
Fast paced work place with short breaks. Roaches throughout facility. Poor quality control. Bad filters after processing. 100-200 filter bags every other batch. Gritty product. Bad engineering controls. No experienced operators. Lazy management. Short staffed. I have almost 20 years experience and left this place after 2 weeks for better job offer. Not enough compensation for the back aches. Look elsewhere if experienced.
Not very enthusiastic place to work not alot of team work
Production Tech (Former Employee), Covington ga – June 21, 2015
Cons: Everything. ..pay, management, working holidays
Long hours and hard work, not good management, don't care about the employees. Always looking for the bad in workers. Pay is not good. ..temporary employees makes the same as a full time employee. ..that's crazy. Every 6 months you get a raise. So in about 2 years you will be at $15.00...Wow
