The Management & Sales Intern and the Sales Associate position are separate - but they are related. As a sales associate, I assist customers by preparing their products, making product recommendations, finding resources, color consulting, and so on. As a Management & Sales Intern, I completed the responsibilities of a sales associate while also learning about managing a store (inventory, profit and loss statements, staffing, lead generation, et cetera). During my internship, we also completed a project that required us to come up with a solution to a problem and implement it in the stores we worked in. After we did this, we presented our solution to a panel of sales professors and Sherwin-Williams Division executives.
