Being a leader isn't easy, but it's rewarding

Branch Manager (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

ProsLife changing experience
Great relationships built
Humungous resume builder
Gained actual real world experience instead of sitting at a computer or following someone else around and just watching them
Got an serious sense of pride and actual accomplishment during and after the internship
Gained the confidence and people skills I need to succeed in future job searches and interviews
Found my personal limits - and proved to myself just how far I can go
Became a leader among my peers
Matured light years faster than anyone my age that I know
Got a lot more organized - this really helps with school, work, and my social life

ConsThis isn't a free ride - this is by far the hardest thing I have ever done
This is not for everyone - if you are not hardworking do not try this
Do not do this solely for money - if you do you will miss out on the most important thing - the experience you gain and the relationships you build
The whole experience is a rollercoaster - be ready for ups and downs throughout

Advice to Senior ManagementThe less hand-holding the better. People are either going to think and figure it out or they're going to learn to ask the right questions. Giving them the answers will only hurt them in the long run.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: - Life changing experience. You will look at everything differently and become much more mature. - Employers love it on a resume. But more… Cons: - NOT for everyone. You are not folding clothes, making spreadsheets, or acting as someone's lackey. If you're not prepared to work, don't… Advice to Senior Management: Empower more. Coach DMs to empower more. The more a DM does everything for an intern, the more it actually hurts that intern.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    It was a challenging, yet very rewarding experience and taught me real life and business skills.

    Branch Manager (Former Employee) Raleigh, NC

    I worked at College Works Painting as an intern for less than a year


    Pros: College Works is a great opportunity to separate yourself from your colleagues. It pays very well and has great benefits for those who put in… Cons: It can be a lot to handle at times but is worth the effort in the end. It is a lot of… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
