I guess my perspective is different, I have seen the HD people and the behr representatives conduct themselves in dishonest practices on this forum and those guys have been banned for this action. So my take is if they conduct themselves in a dishonest manner I try not to buy their products and dislike seeing them receive praise in one liner posts and rankings throughout the board. Sure at first it was kind of funny and days and days later the charm is gone, I would much rather read other reasons on your favor of said product than silly one liners.

Now if a behr rep joined and conducted him/herself in a more professional manner and offered to help inform the board in the manner that the SW vendors, BM vendors, PPG vendors or any of the other vendors we have on this board do I would be fine with that but instead they do it lacking in integrity.

But as with anything not all are bad. Our behr reps and glidden reps here in colorado are actually really good. Im lucky if my ben rep calls me once a year.

No I don't think they are all bad, I just think it is interesting that we have only seemed to of had that problem with them. For some reason they seem to conduct themselves this way, maybe they think because it is a professional board they have to pretend to be something other than what they are, hard to say but it does leave me with the impression that they are more dishonest than other vendors and reps. Just expressing another viewpoint.

I try not to buy their products but sometimes I run into a customer that is 100% sold on them and I have to decide to use their products or pass on the job.

Also just to be clear I am sure not everyone is projecting themselves in a 100% open light but when we get a diy'er that lies about being a pro it stands out and the same is true with the above behavior. I would prefer it if they would be a honest contributor rather than essentially trying to push the products without buying an ad.

I respect what you are saying but I ask you this. I dont use sw400 much. Why do I get charged 26$ for 400 semigloss. I immediately complain to asst mgr, while im still in the store. His response. Pssss dont tell him I told you but you should call your rep and get that semigloss lowered to 19$ which is what most of the other guys are paying. My response is. Do the reps set our pricing even on products we rarely use. Mgr says Yes! Its GUESS YOUR PRICE GAME BY SHERWIN WILLIAMS. At least I always know my price everyday for Behr or Glidden. Its 20% off retail with HD pro rewards. No mind games or surprise pricing.
