    Management Trainee Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams in June 2020.

    Interview

    I was interviewed over the phone. Very generic interview process. It took very long for me to schedule my store visit due to the pandemic, and the recruiters' delays. She was very unresponsive and would take very long to reply to my emails/questions. When she asked for my availability for the in person store visit she completely ignored my availability, and responded very late. I have not gone through my final interview, but at this point I don't know if I would want the position due to how inconsiderate and lengthy the process has been to even schedule the interview.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Boston, MA) in March 2020.

    Interview

    You apply. Get an email. Get called by a recruiter. They tell you to check out a store near you to see if you like it. Then you get to drive over an hour to the district office to be interviewed by someone who couldn’t introduce themselves; and I had to read him name off a wall. Get asked 2 questions. 2 FRIGGIN QUESTIONS. How can you figure someone out in 2 questions? On top of all of that he decides to leave half way in my interview, and start laughing with someone else. I guess it was about my answer. Nothing about my experience, nothing about my schooling (by the way you need a bachelors degree to get the job) Only to be told they’re passing on me. What a joke and a waste of my life.

    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hattiesburg, MS
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Hattiesburg, MS) in March 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process was staged between 3-4 meetings. One over the phone, then twice in person, including a store walk through and then a facetime interview. I enjoyed most the store walk through as it allows for the candidate to see realtime work and hands-on learning advantages. I disliked the waiting 2 weeks after the 3-week long interview stretches until its time to start work however it is worth the wait.
