    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied via job fair after 20 min interview with HR and City Manager. The same received an email from HR with the invitation to schedule an interview with a local store.
    The following week met with a store manager. The purpose of the store interview is to describe the job. I would say it is labor intensive. Even manager's primary responsibility is to talk to the customers and to mix the paint, while operations and finance are secondary.
    I decided to withdraw the application.
    Overall, everyone whom I interacted with was very friendly and enthusiastic about the company. The company has good culture but the job itself didn't satisfy me. I should have read more about the position.

Second, store visit, show you are interested ask about the type of customers and managers experience with the company. Third, city manager, very comfortable went over resume and why i want the job. Fourth, hr manager, more formal why you are good fit for them. Fifth, district manager situational questions.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Metairie, LA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was with the hiring store manager. 4 days passed and out of say 5 maybe 6 other applicants 2 were chosen to interview with the district manager. I honestly had the feeling it went great with the tiniest of doubt. Few days later received the call telling me that the Dm had chosen the other candidate based on experience and P and L . Also was asked if I had any ? I responed with yes tons!. I have 8 yrs. Experience with Sherwin-Williams, 4yrs. In automotive and 4yrs. In the Americas Group, Ft for 3 of those 4yrs at my location. Our Diy/retail sales have tripled & steady growing, Often get mistaken for one of those names on the Co. business cards placed on front counter by register. With that being said I honestly can't see myself being anywhere but Sherwin-Williams where "We don't sell paint the name does that, what we sell as employees of Sherwin is confidence that your project will come out looking as if you hired a professional"
    Thank you to all whim may read this review.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Wethersfield, CT) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Very straightforward and impromptu. Basically they want salespeople, portray that to them and they'll give you a job on the spot. Everything else was standard interview questions revolving around ambition and work ethic, nothing surprising.
