    Management Training Program (MTP) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams.

    Interview

    Everyone at this company was very friendly and I had a great experience during the interview process. The interview process was very extensive. There where three interviews, the first one was a phone interview by a recruiter, the second interview was with the store manager and his assistant manager which was at the training store where the candidate could see the day to day operations of the job first hand, and the last interview was at the district office with the DM, this was my least favorite part of the process because the DM seemed to have a lack of interest in the whole process. I did not get a job offer but the experience was well worth it.
