    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Somerset, PA).

    Interview

    Got a phone call to set up an interview in person. The interview was given by the manager followed by the background check. Interview was pretty easy. They just wanted to know if you were capable of doing basic tasks like lifting paint. They also asked if you were color blind, so if this is your case you probably can't work at a paint store that mixes colors.

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and a few days later I was called for an interview. The day of the interview, I came into the store and I asked to see the hiring manager. I was told he had left for the day but the other manager was there. So I interviewed with that manager and he wasn't prepared to do an interview. But it was super relaxed and fun. He asked me a few questions and I asked more about the position, then he offered me the job and I started a week later.
