    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams.

    Interview

    In NJ it’s a four interview process. I did one interview on the phone that went well. You do the in store which the employees were really nice. You’re sent to see the city manager. He asked vague questions and seemed like no matter how I answered him he didn’t like them. I answered the same with the other two well but he didn’t make me feel comfortable. I was told I wouldn’t be going to the last interview. The last interview is with the district city manager, and he was super nice and gave me tips to pass my third interview which didn’t help. I applied again in Michigan which was a total disaster. The district city manager was young and unprofessional. She didn’t seem prepared at all. She didn’t ask any sales questions. She cut my interview short to where I was with her for half an hour. HR didn’t bother to tell me if I got the job or not and I had to contact them. I didn’t get the job. For the store interview you’re interviewing the store manager and the questions are provided. You dress business casual. For the district city manager you dress professionally which is a suit.
