BEHR – Why Work For Us?


Behr History 

Behr's entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to integrity have been at the heart of our success since 1947.

BEHR is a dynamic company that actively embraces quality and innovation to bring our industry and our customers the very best products and services. Our bold entrepreneurial spirit and our commitment to integrity and to doing the right thing has been the cornerstone of our success since 1947.

Our History


Soon after the Second World War, our founder, Otho Behr, Jr. began selling linseed oil to paint stores from the back of his woody station wagon. His customers quickly made it known that they needed something that would perform better on redwood than just linseed oil. Seizing the opportunity, Otho Jr. asked his father, Dr. Otho Behr Sr., an accomplished chemist, to help him develop a formula to meet their requirements. Soon the father-and-son team began making a clear finish and stain for redwood in the Behr family garage.

In 1948, Otho Behr moved his burgeoning business from the family garage into an 800 square foot Quonset hut in Pasadena, California. Over the years, sales have steadily increased for this entrepreneurial, family-owned business. As business grew, the need for larger facilities also grew. The company, now officially known as BEHR Process Corporation, has since relocated to larger facilities and has expanded across the country and across the globe. Today BEHR has locations and businesses all across the country in California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington, and internationally in Canada, China, Guam and India. In 1986, BEHR expanded into the interior/exterior paint business, setting the stage for the next dynamic era of growth.

Up until then, for over 39 years, BEHR had been a very successful stain and varnish manufacturer and now we are proud to say we earn top recognition for our premium paints, and have since their introduction in 1986. In 1999, after 52 years of private ownership, BEHR Process Corporation was acquired by Masco Corporation of Taylor, Michigan. The merging of Masco and BEHR successfully brought together two companies who share an entrepreneurial philosophy and an overarching commitment to integrity and to "doing the right thing."

    I have been working at BEHR full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, growing company. Excellent management who genuinely care and operate our business ethically. Open door policy all the way to the top. Our Executive team is excellent and they do really care about maintaining the culture at Behr even through growth. There aren't many companies left like Behr, many people haven't worked anywhere else and are decades tenured. Most employees I work with treat this company like it's their own and are passionate about continuing to win. This is the type of company you work for if you appreciate stability and the job security (as much as there can be in this day and age).

    Cons

    If you are looking for quick career advancement you may not enjoy it at Behr. Although it does happen on occasion it's definitely not the standard.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate your passion and commitment to maintaining the culture at Behr / Kilz. Thank you for all you do and continuing to drive this company forward. Keep up the great work!

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BEHR.

    Interview

    I had a three step interview process.

    1. Half hour phone interview with the hiring manager, unfortunately I had to cut it short because it was a busy day at work and I had snuck off to take the call.

    2. On-site interview with the hiring manager and department head. This lasted around an hour 15.

    3. Impromptu meeting with the plant manager, a few days later. This lasted 30-45 minutes.

    Throughout the process Behr was very transparent about what was going on and I received feedback about moving on to the next step within a day.

    Interview Questions

    • The first interview was a review of my resume and a stack of papers with different situations. You know how it goes, provide an example of X and how did you handle it. It's all to get a feel for your experience and work method.   Answer Question
