    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Houston, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview starts with the sales manager, then district manager and then typically you would go on to meet with the VP of that division. Once you have reached that point, a decision will be made. Once you have passed the interview with the District manager, people like to say you have the Job. That is not always true. The final Interview still requires that you put just as much effort if not much more than the previous.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (Charleston, SC) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview, store interview, district management interview. Laid back. They want to make sure you are a fit for the company just as much as the company is a fit for you. Process varies, offers must be accepted within 48 hours. STAR format questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams in October 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewing with SW is very straight forward and to the point. They do not beat around the bush, and are upfront and honest about expectations. The only thing you must keep in mind that is if you are not willing to move, do not waste your time. The company has a military mind set when it comes to relocating, and only if you are willing to do so is there chances for advancement.
