Easy job

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It’s an easy job just selling paint but no room for advancement to do better. Not a career but a good job to have if you just need easy work with no future.

A waste of time

Most of the job was counting inventory to have something to do. They were overstaffed for the small clientele they get. I spent most days looking for things to keep me busy.

Pros

Allowed me to make mistakes

Cons

Toxic work environment (hypocrisy and talking behind one's back)

Poor management, boring work place

There is a lot to learn. We had to stand all day waiting for clients to serve. You have to do irrelevant work to your job title such as cleaning the store, driving to deposit money in the bank or buying coffee for the employees. All together poor management

Ummm

It's a great job! Love it! It's a fun job sometimes stressful but what job isn't right? Great pay and benefits and bonuses with up to 20 hours over time with out being questioned. It's nice to be appreciated as well!

Fast Paced Environment and Patient Management

There is a lot to learn but it's easy if you try. The staff and management are very patient and do their best to train new skills as time/staffing/skill level permits. Management is reasonable with their expectations and will not overwhelm new staff with too much information at once, which is great since there is a lot to learn. This is an ideal job for those that are detail oriented and can work independently as well as part of a team. Everyone is friendly - staff, contractors and customers!

Fast Paced Work Environment with good pay

Good Place to work. Days are busy and things change constantly. Lot of employee turn over as most new people cant keep up. Not a job for those who dont work hard. No sitting or cell phone which is a problem for a lot of new hires. Lot of opportunities to increase pay if you want it.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

never a slow day

Free lunch but it all goes downhill after that.

They say it's an employee friendly culture, but that only applies to W&H environments. You never know how many 'fires' you will need to put out day to day. The work life balance is subpar; expect to be on call like a heart surgeon (but it's making paint). Male, pale, stale runs the company with the same group of guys rotating through the highest level positions. Nobody wants to hear your feedback as much as they ask for it. Management can't get out of their own way.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

No room for growth/no work-life balance

Fun and enthusiastic place to work!

The company provides great training to allow the employees to feel comfortable mixing paint/ advising customers on paint colors and products. Would highly recommend working here.

Fun, but a lot of work

Nice place to work, great people, which makes it a better place to be. If you like a challenge and dealing with multiple departments, it can be the place for you.

Worst experience i had. Never work again

Worst management i have seen. They hired me with passing my interview and in 1 month they laid off me because there business was slow. If you already know about your work-pace then why do you hire someone and destroying employe future. Never recommend anyone to work here.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Worst management

great people but pay is below average

people are great. they are hard working and very friendly. managers are nice but if you're not a favorite or phd you will not get far in pdl.Free lunch and occasional free food truck. Pay is not good at all. Many people have left in 2021 for higher paying jobs. good to start and get experience then leave if not passionate about paint. if you are passionate about paint you'll love it.

Pros

free lunch, 3 weeks vacation starting off

High-output environment focused on accuracy and customer satisfaction

Customers are great to get to know over time. Management is not very forgiving on any actions that ultimately lead to a decrease in profitability, Ex) you get a demerit next to your name on the wall if you mistint a paint product, or include a typo in the sales order. t

Good steady work

Never really had a problem with them. As with any place, they do things that will make you mad, but overall not too bad. Just follow safety procedures so the hazardous chemicals don't get on you!

Fun and engaging with endless learning opportunities and awesome clientele.

Benjamin Moore is an engaging and fun place to work with a great culture and many opportunities to learn new things and specialize in different areas. The pay is not great especially considering how difficult the job is, and the hours aren't conducive to family life, but it is such interesting work that sometimes the negatives don't seem to matter.

Pros

Interesting Fun Great culture

Cons

Long hours Stressful

Don’t waste your talent or time.

Very expensive paint. Selling to contractors can be difficult depending on owners ability to run their store proficiently. Retailers very but mostly don’t know much about the industry as a whole and do not appeal to contractors for various reasons. If you work store level you are typically safe and if you want a retail job it could work for you.

Cons

Owner puts tremendous stress on employees to produce and work overtime without pay.
