    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Valspar.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Fairly straightforward. Nothing creative or inventive.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None.....big mistake
