    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams in November 2010.

    Interview

    The recruiter calls and does a phone screening interview, if they find you to be a good fit they call you in for a 1:1. After that if they think you are good fit they send you to a "store visit" where you go the nearest Sherwin-Williams store to see what the job is really like. Once you have done the store visit you report to the recruiter which then schedules a meeting with the district manager/city manager. You meet with him and it all goes from there, he decides whether or not you'll be hired.

    Interview

    The whole interview process took about 6 weeks. There was a preliminary over the phone interview, a site interview where you talked with a store manager at a training store, and then finally a face-to-face interview with the district manager. Each round of interviewing was extremely basic and easy to pass. As long as you are honest and interested in the position, you will most likely get the job.

    Interview Questions

    • None were very unexpected. Pretty basic interview questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was asked a series of several personal questions followed by some professional experience related questions. I was asked to do a background check and also asked to do a drug test. Everything went very well overall. After the interview process, I was given an offer below what my requirements were. We negotiated a salary for about one hour, but finally I decided that they couldn't match my expectations. I decided not to pursue the job opportunity.
