    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Valspar (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    The first interview was on campus to discuss my resume. It was a fairly simple process with a few questions designed to understand my personality. For instance, one question asked whether I preferred a normal office desk job or would like to be out traveling and solving problems on sight.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you prefer a traditional office job or would you like to be on sight traveling to the client location?   Answer Question
