I worked at College Works Painting as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

The pros associated with this job as an intern, or as a regional consultant, revolve around networking and learning the work ethic common to starting up your own company.

Cons

In my experience, the biggest con was working with the office. Consistently lost customer, employee information so checks and paperwork were late with no appeal process available. As long as you have a manager who engages with you regularly you have a decent shot at doing moderately well but if you get a manager who doesn't well its up to you how bad you want it to get before you quit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on making your office staff in charge of receiving paperwork more responsible and lower your cut of the sale. This is a sales position for college students, let them have some cash and not take 40% from their sale.

    I worked at College Works Painting full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours depending on your boss.
    Work outside
    Better chance of becoming an intern if you've had this position (I was sick of it honestly)
    It is rewarding to see you're work when its finished and you usually get tipped from the homeowners
    That's about it

    Cons

    Pay based on budget hours which were almost ALWAYS under budgeted causing pay to be near minimum wage.
    When its 100 degrees and humid you're gonna have a bad time.
    High turnover with many new painters to train. Many of the painters had a very low work ethic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your painters/Crew Chiefs at least $10 an hour

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
