    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, DE
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Newark, DE) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was emailed to set up a time for a phone interview a few weeks after I applied. At the arranged time, I received a call and we spoke for a little under an hour. During the interview, I noted that I was interested in being considered for the position in another area. The recruiter said she'd forward my resume and her notes (she wanted to continue and do the full interview) to that area's recruiter. I was left with an overall positive impression, but then I never heard from the company again.
