    Pros

    Good company culture, lots of potential for growing your book of business and increasing your income.

    Cons

    Limited by your production team... You can book all the jobs you want but if your team can't produce the work it doesn't mean anything.

    I worked at CertaPro Painters full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent hourly wage, steady 8-5 mon-fri hours.

    Cons

    No benefits, no chance to advance. Demeaning upper management. Franchise owners can run the company as they want. This owner promised great wages to painters by offering piece work pay which meant he screwed them out of a lot of wages, they would quit and leave me to deal with unhappy homeowners when they called.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees fairly, offer hourly pay instead of going to Vegas to gamble!

    Pros

    I can work at my own pace, handling just what I can take really care of meaning I'm able to do my best.

    Cons

    Some times they are to low in their bids. And that means I lose money and it leads to poor results.

    Advice to Management

    A low bid leads to cheap results.

    I worked at CertaPro Painters full-time

    Pros

    Joe and Kathy are highly focused on the business, and readily identify individual strengths and weaknesses, and work with you to improve your sales skills. I always felt needed and my input was never put aside, and always considered. Great team atmosphere, and all working to further the CertaPro experience with our customers. Loved the job and meeting new people every day, freedom to schedule your day, but need to be organized, and follow the CertaPro model. Company Vehicle, computer and cell phone a plus. Ability to make serious money is there, if you work hard, follow direction, and develop great customer Rapport. So CertaPro Cape Cod is, and will be a fantastic option for customers looking to have a professional paint project completed. Joe and Kathy are wonderful, and if your looking for a quality paint project completed I would highly recommend them, and there experienced sales team... Also had great selection of Pop Tarts for morning meetings.......

    Cons

    No benefits, nothing else to mention at all.

    Advice to Management

    None to mention District Manager Peter is the most knowledgeable person I have ever meet in the painting business field,

    Pros

    The senior management, directors and line mangers focus on strategic and operational objectives. Very goal driven and willing to innovate as needed. Always trying to improve while keeping the customer satisfied. Very good marketing support.

    Cons

    The service industry is a tough business that sometimes requires putting employees in front of customers by them selves. It can be stressful when employees let you down and customers are difficult, have improper expectations and when some people are downright dishonest. Managing painters can be challenging, with no-shows and quality control.
