It was very easy and the interviewer was very nice. I accepted an offer the same day elsewhere, so I had to turn this one down. They let me know that I could reapply at any time.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams

Interview

There were a total of 3 interviews. The first interview was over the phone and much like an infill questionnaire. Second interview was in person with District Management more of a casual conversation, with the goal of learning about personalities. The third and final interview was with HR, very frequently asked questions that was easy to prepare for.

Interview

First, there is an online application through the company website. Next, you receive a confirmation email. After that, there was an emailed survey-type questionnaire. The survey was very long and tedious. I did not think it would take so long, but it took more than an hour.

Interview

Three part interview. The first part is a phone interview, then a store visit, then an interview with a district manager. It's easy but takes a lot of time. It's also competitive so keep applying to other jobs. Overall, seems like a good career and smooth interview process.
