    Manager Training MTP Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Saint Louis, MO) in June 2017.

    Interview

    First, I had a phone screen. She asked me basic questions relating to my past work experience, and she went over what to expect from the MTP program, if I had any questions, etc. Then, literally a day later, I was invited to do an interview with the DM (usually you do a store interview in-between). The interview was somewhat lengthy, but I also like to talk a lot. He asked me STAR behavioral-based questions and wanted to know more about what I knew about the company, what my career objectives were, etc. Overall, it was a pretty average-difficulty interview for a grad coming right out of college. As long as you have some general idea of what you're going to say, you'll be fine. Just remember to answer in the STAR format, look professional, smile, have a few questions prepared, and make eye contact! This is a customer-service based industry, so how you present yourself matters. Glassdoor is an excellent resource!

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Cleveland, OH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is very fast. The HR folks cut through all the generalized questions. It is mostly about who you know is how you get an interview. Most managers don't call you back. They just ignore if they don't have an interest. The HR department is very large and should be doing more to help their employees and future employees.
