    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Dayton, OH) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Went to the office and met one individual. She had a list of about 10 questions she went through. Also veered off topic to make it more relaxed. Talked a lot about what previous interns did and where they are now.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied to internship and a week later had my phone (FaceTime) interview with the local recruiter. Next, she referred me to the District Manager of my area who then looked over my resume and contacted me for a second interview a couple of days later. Had an interview with him and was given an unofficial offer right on the spot and accepted it.

    The phone interview was a more formal, behavioral type questions while the interview with the District Manager was extremely laid back and more conversational. They're really looking for someone who has had work experience in manual-labor type jobs and is willing to work hard and get their hands dirty. They didn't put too much of an emphasis on GPA and never asked me about school. Just make sure you point out the times you have really had to work hard, wake up early, and get your hands dirty. Also, having experience in customer service is another huge bonus. Be presentable, be nice, and always remember to remind them you're a hard worker and you should be fine.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Orlando, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Attended a university career fair and spoke with a recruiter who said I have to fill out an online application. After filling out the application, I received a call a few days later for an interview where they asked fairly simple questions just talking about yourself and why you want to work at Sherwin Williams. Then I had a second interview with a district manager who asked similar questions and invited me to go on a tour of the store. Overall, the process was easy and quick.
