    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at College Works Painting.

    Interview Details

    The company called me after I'd said I was interested in one of my college classes. They originally called me to gauge my interest, and later asked me for a time that would be best for an interview. On my first call, I asked if it would be a problem that I didn't have a car, and they told me there wouldn't be as long as I could get around. Unfortunately, the first question in my interview was whether or not I had a car, and I was immediately dismissed once I said I didn't. Overall, I'm pretty disappointed. Shows a lack of communication on the company's part.

    Interview Details

    I filled out a sheet of paper in my class and was contacted a few weeks later with a phone call. This is the initial interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at College Works Painting.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very solid, it challenged me all the way through the process. The District Manager was there to help me along the way of the interview process. After meeting with them, they helped me prep for my next interview where I met with the VP. The VP, Tom was very down to earth, and it was a rewarding experience to meet with him. They definitely did not sugar coat the program, they made sure that they let me know it was made for students that want to do more than the average internship. The best part was talking to alumni, having the opportunity to see where the alumni are today and how the program helped their career goals.
