    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in High Point, NC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Valspar (High Point, NC) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty relaxed. It felt more like a meet and greet than an interview. I was able to laugh with the interviewer. For a moment, we started talking about family. He asked more about my experience when I intern ina third world country which had nothing to do with the job. However, all that happened after I talked about my skills.

    Warehouse/Inventory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Valspar (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    2 Phone screens and then face 2 face. Face to face was 5 different interviews. They will make hotel arrangements for you, but do not put it on a credit card or direct bill. It goes on the candidates card and they do not reimburse! Multiple attempts to contact someone go unanswered. Fyi, They are being bought out. Boards and investors have not approved it yet. No follow up to the interviews is provided either even though I was told 7-10 days.

    Average Interview

    1 phone screening interview
    2 30 min interviews with hiring manager and hr representative

    Really positive experience, but the Sherwin-Williams deal was announced a few days after the interview so that shook things up.

    **Valspar has locations on both 3rd avenue and 3rd street, so make sure to go to the right one. Google maps may send you to the wrong one if you don't double-check.
