    I have been working at Valspar full-time (more than 8 years)


    Company has grown exponentially the past few years. Salaries are fair and the profit sharing program is uncanny.


    Company has lost it's ability to develop talent. And is in too must a reactive role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are many good people there and should be considered for the many opportunites that are going to outsiders. There should be a pool of individuals that the company sould concentrate on growing

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    None.....big mistake
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview
