    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sherwin-Williams in August 2009.

    Interview

    Pretty structured, first interview with HR over the phone, then in person, and finally with the store manager or regional director. Overall rather standard, there was no panel-type interview involved. There were some odd questions that didn't have much to do about the position or company, which i assume was to get a better perspective as to who you are as a person, but they definitely felt forced. Overall, though, a pretty straight forward process.
