"I've been working for this company for about 2 years now and I can say that it is definitely a male dominated environment. 90% of the sexual discrimination comes from painters, contractors and homeowners. It is also a harsh place to work when you're 5'1" because for me I have to use the ladder to get product from the second shelf all the time. I don't get any sexual discrimination from my coworkers, but thats because my store is the only one in my area that has 3 women and 1 man working. The best way to deal with discrimination from customers is being tactful when talking to them. If a customer asks for a male employee my usual response is, "We do have one, but I can help you with whatever it is you need." This usually works and if they have a strange question, "Let me look into that" is my response. It's like throwing shade, but more professional. Women are also apparently the only ones "really good with color", but we all know that isn't necessarily true."

"I've worked here for a little over a year. It is a mainly male-dominated industry but I feel the women that work at SW are treated fairly. Management roles are attainable and we aren't limited by our gender. (I will edit this later if possible.)"

"Though the job is physically demanding, I really enjoy my job most days. You never know how each day will play out, so it's not a dull job. You have to have a good eye for color, able to problem solve, and able to lift and carry heavy materials. Must be resilient against male chauvinism. It's a male dominated industry, so women get treated like they are just decorators and aren't able to assist with product related questions. Bonus structure is nice and base salary is generous. Benefits are great all around and the company will match up to 6% of 401k investments with company stock. Biggest con is the physical aspect of the jo. The amount of lifting and carrying, standing and walking is really hard on the joints and back."
