College Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Sherwin-Williams in May 2014.
Interview Details – Three-part interview process which began with a telephone interview, then moved on to a store visit, and finally an interview with the district manager. The initial recruiter who gave you the phone interview stayed with you during the whole process and helped with any questions and always followed up to help schedule the next step. Everyone was very friendly, very obviously loved the company, and it was a great experience. The questions were pretty typical and included things like, "where do you see yourself in _ years?" or "describe a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer," "why do you want to work for Sherwin-Williams?" etc. The recruiter was the only one who had actually really looked at your resume and would ask questions over that, the store visit was more for you to ask questions and see if you wanted to work there, and the district manager asked a lot of the same questions as the telephone interview, but it was just more serious and in a professional setting.
- Give a specific example of when you had to deal with a customer in a difficult situation. Answer Question

College Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Sherwin-Williams in February 2014.
Interview Details – Sent in application, received a phone interview invite. Phone interview was about 45 minutes. Phone interview is an initial screening and within 1-2 weeks will either deny you or invite you to an in-store interview with a training manager. Finally, you meet with the district manager and a decision is given.
Interview Question – How do you incorporate safety into your every day life? Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
College Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sherwin-Williams in April 2010.
Interview Details – I submitted a resume to Sherwin through my college's career site. I was then called to talk with the local store manager. In talking to him I could tell that he wanted to hire someone right away. I went to the store for a full interview, but the manager was really unprepared and just asked me some basic questions, showed me the store, and offered me the job. I'm pretty sure I was the only application he looked at. But after that it took over a month of paperwork to get me started.
Interview Question – Tell me about what your learning in school? Answer Question
