Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Houston, TX) in November 2014.

Interview

I had 5 rounds. First, with the recruiter. He was my best resource throughout interview process. The first interview with the recruiter was informal asked basic questions about my resume and experience, and most importantly if you are willing to relocate. 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.

    Run of the mill interview questions. Name a time you felt/did "X" and describe the issue, what you did, and the outcome. Extremely formal. Hiring manager was devoid of personality.

    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.

    I received a call from the HR hiring manager who gave me a 30 minute phone interview. Once I completed that interview, I was given a chance to interview with the city manager who will decide if you would be a good fit for the company. He/she will decide if you are best fit. From there, they gave me the nod that they wanted to hire me, they sent me new hire paperwork and was given a date to start.

    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.
