Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Orlando, FL) in March 2015.

Interview

I applied online. A few days later I was emailed about setting up a phone interview. I completed the phone screening the next week and was told that I performed well and they wanted me to visit the district store in Orlando, Florida. I drove out there a little over 2 weeks later and interviewed with the city manager who told me I asked some pretty high level questions and he seemed pleased with me. A week after that I received another email prompting me to visit a local store in Gainesville to complete a store visit there. I visited the appropriate store and walked through a guide with the store manager. He was very informative and friendly and I left when we were finished there. I was offered the job about a week after that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Virginia Beach, VA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Went through a phone screening process in which I had spoken about my past experience, level of education, and any type of past management experience. Then, after I was called to schedule my date for the 1 to 1 interview with the District Manager, I had to go into the district office. I was asked a series of question pertaining to past experience and education level again. After, this line of questioning most of the interview was focused on how I would help the store and generate more leads to increase accounts and revenue.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Orange, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was a 3 step process. The area HR recruiter interviews you with basic questions. Then you visit one of the stores to get the feel of what the job actual entails. Interview with the City Manager for the final one to get hired. Always ask a lot of questions as upper management wants to see that you are interested and continually learning through every process of the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Phila, PA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    first i was asked for a phone screening interviewed, then I set up a one on one with one of the city managers, then I was scheduled to visit a store and was interviewed by store manager and assistant. Then i had a follow up phone interview, and last I had an interview with the district manager.
    In my opinion the interviewing process was way too complex and long, and is not that way for everyone, I heard of other co workers that by passed all the interviews, and were hired because they knew someone in the company.

    Interview

    I was contacted by human resources and asked to apply for a position. A phone interview was set-up and it went well. After that, a store visit (second interview) was scheduled and went well. I e-mailed the human resources representative that I was very interested and she responded that she forwarded my information to the managers and should hear back for an interview with them. Two weeks went by and I never heard back. I e-mailed the human resources representative to request feedback and have never heard back. No response. Very unprofessional.
