    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sherwin-Williams in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing with SW is very straight forward and to the point. They do not beat around the bush, and are upfront and honest about expectations. The only thing you must keep in mind that is if you are not willing to move, do not waste your time. The company has a military mind set when it comes to relocating, and only if you are willing to do so is there chances for advancement.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sherwin-Williams in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I have only gone through one interview so far but the recruiter had considerable knowledge. I recommended researching the company and thinking back on past experiences. For example, you should know some specific examples of conflict with another employee and how you resolved it, problem with customer and how you resolved it, time when you lead people, etc. The more specific stories you have the better.
