    Pros

    -very good experience
    -gives you a view into all aspects of running a small business

    Cons

    -senior management is degrading because CEO reaps all the benefits (money wise) of the managers, and he doesn't do anything really
    -VERY demanding at such a young age (never been more stressed out in my entire life- emotional breakdowns multiple times throughout the summer, and I'm one who loves a challenge)
    -LONG hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -be clear about expectations - the "average" amount of sales was not at all average, and the return that the manager makes is also very incorrect. At the end of the summer, I calculated my hourly rate, and it was about 5$/hour or less.

    It was a sufficient summer job for a college student, but compensation was low compared to the industry.

    Pros

    The hours, the friendly work environment. These factors made it fun to go to work, and I enjoyed going to work each day. I was good friends by the end of the summer with the other team members.

    Cons

    The pay is below industry average, and is too low for the difficulty of the work. The work has bare minimum breaks for such hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise pay for the painters, or provide the option for bonuses that allow painters to feel more initiative to succeed.

    I have been working at Student Painters, LLC

    Pros

    Learned a lot about managing a company
    Face tough situations everyday
    Gain communication/leadership skills

    Cons

    You probably won't make as much money as they say you will
    Your time will be better spent elsewhere than driving around in your car putting fliers in mailboxes
    Very sales driven, they act like they care about you but they don't unless you sell

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay off the sales driven atmosphere
