Sherwin-Williams offers a number of internships that provide hands-on, real world experience to undergraduate and graduate students. There are a range of options available, including programs that focus on retail sales, information technology, research and development, and global supply chain management. Eligibility and requirements vary by program, so please check the internship and co-op websites for more information.

Sherwin-Williams offers students the chance to take part in one of the first large-scale co-op programs in the Northeast Ohio region. The information technology professional apprentice considers talented students as full-time employees; students commit to the program until graduation, and for six months to one-year afterward. A broad range of positions is available in infrastructure, corporate applications, Internet services, security, and client services.

The stores internship program offers full-time students entering their junior or senior year at an accredited four-year college or university the opportunity to gain on-the-job experience while earning a competitive hourly wage. Over 3,300 company-owned stores throughout the United States and Canada provide practical, on-the-job experience in sales/customer service, marketing/merchandising, product knowledge, inventory management, financial reports, accounts receivable, and operations management.

The research and development internship is a 12-week program that provides interns and co-ops the chance to learn about the chemistry of paint in a real world setting. Program participants work in an industrial setting and attend lunchtime lectures focused on acquiring skills like effective resume writing, interviewing skills, and presentation/writing skills.

Lastly, the global supply chain internship is open to undergraduate and graduate students studying engineering, operations, supply chain, environmental health and safety, and human resources.
