POSITION SUMMARY:

Do you want to be a part of a team that never quits, welcomes creativity and is the world's largest paints and coatings company in the world? If so, keep reading because we have an exciting opportunity for you. Sherwin-Williams Consumer Brands Group is offering a PAID internship for college students that offers hands-on experience in a well-known Home Center that carries Sherwin-Williams Retail North America Division's products, Valspar, HGTV by Sherwin-Williams, Cabot, Minwax, Purdy, Thompsons Water Seal and more. This opportunity could also lead to full-time career opportunities upon graduation!

During the 10-week week summer internship program, you will have the opportunity to work side by side with our experienced Sales Service Reps. You will spend your time with your "Mentor" learning the ropes and uncovering what it takes to be a successful Sales Service Rep for Sherwin-Williams Consumer Brands Group.

Your summer will start off with a virtual Opening Kickoff event where you will learn all about the Sherwin-Williams Consumer Brands Group and be introduced to all of the exciting items your summer internship will entail.

While working side by side with your "Mentor" and other Sherwin-Williams Sales Service Reps you will be introduced and begin to develop aspects in sales, analytics, marketing activations, training, Key Decision Making (KDM) exposure, business acumen and business communication. Interns will also be exposed to Sherwin-Williams professionals in a variety of functional areas.

After participating in all of these learning experiences, you will have the opportunity to visit our main office in Davidson, North Carolina where you can "Let your Colors Show" and conduct a presentation on the exciting and new experiences that you learned throughout the summer.

We hope that by having you join our team for 10-weeks you get to learn, experience new things and potentially be offered a full time Sales Service Representative position upon your graduation.

The training location for the Central Division is Houston, TX. Interns must be located here for the duration of the internship.
