Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams.

Interview

Pretty relaxed from my experience, pretty simple questions, because you'll go through training to gain experience later on to learn more about the products. It was an overall pretty good experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams.

    Interview

    Asked a few questions and not much less. The whole process lasted about ten minutes total. Hardest part is just waiting usually on the back ground check and them working you into the schedule and what not

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Tucker, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call back about 2 weeks later to come in. I waited about 30-45 minutes before I was led to the back to do the interview. We greeted each other and then she pulled out a sheet of paper with generic interview questions, there were around 10, that she probably pulled up offline. When I was done answering questions she would write down something on the sheet of paper that had the questions on it, presumably my answers and/or comments about me, which led to there being about a minute of awkward silence between each question. When the interview was done she asked if I had any questions and I said yes and asked her stuff like what's an average day like and her experience within the company. I didn't get a notice that I didn't get the job until about a month or two later but by that time, of course, I realized that I didn't get the job.

    It took about 3 days for them to call me back after submiting an application online. My interview was pretty standard. It took maybe 15 minutes and he asked general questions about my work history. He answered 3 phone calls and left the cash register to do my interview. They must not get a high walk in volume.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams in January 2016.

    Interview

    very straightforward. They don't treat their lower level employees very well and treat them as if they are disposable so they are always desperate for people. If you apply you will get hired.
