      Great Experience - Bad Leadership

      Pros

      Always had an opportunity for growth and challenging myself. My direct coach was incredible - truly cared about my development.

      Cons

      Higher leadership was toxic. The amount of pressure was insane. The expectations were unrealistic

      Pros

      You make your own fortune, the more work you put in, the more you get out

      Cons

      The painters do get paid a bit, but not as much as they should. Also, the returns are pitiful until you get past certain milestones. the royalty system in place was brutal at times.

      Summer Job

      Pros

      If you're looking for a summer job and have a group of friends you want to work with, then give College Pro Painters a try. Work in crews of 3-5 people and paint houses while getting to be out in the sun and talking with friends. The pay is decent, around minimum wage of $10-11 per hour in Connecticut.

      Cons

      Depending on who your boss/manager is, your training will vary. If you're lucky you will spend your first week with an experienced crew on a house with a flat landscape that will allow for easy and steady ladder placement. If you're not so lucky you may be stuck with a house on a hill where ladder placement feels impossible and you'll be spending your first day on the job 20+ feet in the air clinging to the ladder while attempting to paint a house for the first time.
