    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams (San Antonio, TX) in March 2015.

    It started with a phone interview, very general questions such as, why Sherwin Williams, why you chose your major, what leadership skills you have.

    Although I was reached out to the company because of my resume, I replied and I got another reply 1 week later. We set up a phone interview, it went great the lady liked me and said she wanted me to continue on to the next interview with the store manager. She said she will get back to me within 3 days

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams.

    Interview

    Interviews can be fairly relaxed. Rest assured, they have a fairly good idea of who they want in a position prior to interviews. If you're already working for the company, it's always good to call dm to inquire about position before posting. You can get a good intuition if you'd be a candidate by asking them a few questions. Never talk down about your previous boss, but how you'd improve in a positive manner.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared to do most of the talking with their open ended questions over past experience and your future plans in your potential assignment. Even if you wouldn't at the time, explain that you'd be flexible in relocating. If you're willing to move for the company and are somewhat successful, you can get almost any position that you want.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiations are not going to happen as we're paid on a scale based on years of service and job title.
