Great experience requiring a lot of hard work.

VERY hard

Branch Manager (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH

I worked at Student Painters, LLC

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 Senior Management-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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

Painter (Former Employee)

I worked at Student Painters, LLC

ProsThe 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
