    It's a good company to work for

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Oakville, ON

    ProsThe management and the atmosphere is great, the company is professional and has hi-standards in terms of customer service and customer satisfaction. I like working for Sherwin Williams I learned a lot here in a very short period of time and I like to help out the customers with their painting needs and concerns.

    ConsThe only downside of working here is that it is a part-time position so I had to find a second part time job in order to make enough money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management is great at this store.
