    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Cleveland, OH) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The process took roughly six weeks - two phone interviews, the in-person interview with the City Manager, and the offer one week after the in-person interview. Although I felt a distinct disadvantage from other applicants who might have had greater professional experience, the company places value on those who are enthusiastic, do their homework on the company, and can sincerely articulate their commitment to, and making the most of, this opportunity.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Cleveland, OH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is very fast. The HR folks cut through all the generalized questions. It is mostly about who you know is how you get an interview. Most managers don't call you back. They just ignore if they don't have an interest. The HR department is very large and should be doing more to help their employees and future employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    No phone screening. I directly received an onsite interview invitation from their HR department and I discussed their opening with three different people on three individual 30-45 minute sessions. They seemed to have a laid-back culture and everybody was very approachable and knowledgeable. They didn't ask anything out of the ordinary just basic behavioral questions and we discussed extensively the job responsibilities and whether I could be a good fit for their team. About a month after the interview even though I thought I did well and after two e-mails and one voicemail to their hr representative I haven't heard back from them, which I find it frustrating and unprofessional especially when you take into account that the opening was for their global headquarters.
