Manager Training MTP Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams in November 2017.

Interview

I met with representatives from Sherwin Williams Automotive Finishes at a university career fair and I had my first interview about 2 weeks after. The initial interview lasted approximately 40 minutes and it was quite casual as well as informational. The two reps that I interviewed with referred me to reps in another area that I was interested in working in. I was in contact with those reps within hours and we scheduled a second interview. The second interview lasted much longer than the first (almost 2 hours) and the majority of the interview was getting to know each other and delving into specific details about company and position that weren't covered in the initial interview. The reps I interviewed with were great and made the interview a stress-free, enjoyable experience. I got to sit down and talk to an employee who was in the same position I applied for which was a nice touch. I received an offer about 10 days later.

Interview Questions

  • The first interview involved some STAR questions such as "tell us about a time when you had to overcome adversity?" The second interview focused more on career goals and personal characteristics.   Answer Question

    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!
