Two interviews. CareerBuilder is screening applicants so a sales background is essential. They're looking for folks with experience in the big box store arena. It isn't actually a sales job, as TMs are simply the middle man but they dress up the job to seem like a sales job. It's really an in-store service job. Experience in group training and teaching is helpful.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Valspar in June 2014.
Process was professional, balanced and thorough. Interviewer was prompt and respectful of the interviewee's time and experience. It was not only a question/answer session. The interviewer took the time to share a conversation with me, allowed me to ask questions and participated in basic chit chat that I believe, allows you to get to know who you future boss is and if this is a person you would enjoy working under.
- From my experience, the questions asked were typical for an interview process. There was the standard, "what would you do in ................ scenario" questions, along with questions specific to the brand, such as knowledge about different types of paint, as well as knowledge of Valspar and its company.
