    17 year employee, good times and bad. Company has lost track of what made it .

    Store Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsGreat benefits, opportunity for advancement if willing to move.

    ConsThe this year vs. last year philosophy is not a way to build a long term business. Only concerned now about stock price and sacrificing its American stores in the process. Investing all money in foreign ventures.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour stores are chronically short staffed. Get out of the 1970's business philosophy and practice what you preach. You have to have experienced employees to compete with the competition stores yet you will not commit resources. Offer the best pay in the industry staff your stores properly and you will achieve your goals . And number one the box stores are NOT your competition it's the contractor market that is key. Quit offering our service and top personal for nothing by matching prices with companies that do not offer our service and locations. The pricing system is a joke. A gallon of paint can sell to one person for 50.00 and someone else for 10.95. Really?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Be ready to produce

    Store Manager (Current Employee)

    Prosgood 401k plan and decent benefits, along with competitive salaries for full-time workers and adequate bonus programs when individuals are able to produce.

    ConsCulture varies greatly from area to area and even within areas, as with most places, it is as good as the people you work with. However, many times a culture of hyper-competitiveness to a fault is present, which leaves individuals at the mercy of middle management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on incentivizing individuals throughout the organization to go to business more effectively by fostering competitive team environments as opposed to just competitive environments.

    An incredible company that I am proud to be a part of.

    Hybrid Sales Specialist (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD (US)

    ProsYou are challenged everyday and are taught how to run a business. They are very employee oriented and promote mostly from within. They treat their employees very well.

    ConsPositions are not always available for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am not in their shoes but I feel they could become more involved with the smaller stores. I was only in a small store for two months but i felt the time strain on the managers. Maybe consider allowing three full time employees per store. I realize the financial burden that would be soldered because of this though i believe it would result in a decrease in manager turnover and a happier work environment.

    Be in it to win it

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany really invests in their employees. Providing training and support in all aspects of your career. They expect al ot out of their employees, but they put a lot in.

    ConsLong hours and in some stores the physical aspects of the job can be difficult. There is also a lot of movement so settling into a routine can be difficult.
