Positive Outlook

I have been working at College Pro full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Exposure to a higher level of responsibility at my age level than any other company would offer me, this came with a skilled support group to help me grow and learn

Cons

It is an immense amount of work and I had/have to make personal sacrifices to succeed in my job

Advice to Management

Keep fighting the people that report to you to understand the opportunity they have so they do not waste the valuable time they have to be successful

    I worked at College Pro (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working outside, physical labor, customer interaction (if you're franchisee doesn't try to micromanage everything)

    Cons

    Too many to name, but primarily on a direct franchisee to painter/job site manager interaction

    Advice to Management

    Try to maintain higher OSHA regulation and maintenance. Painters should not be penalized for lack of equipment from franchise runners.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at College Pro as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good experience for a resume

    Cons

    if you are offered a franchisee position- DO NOT TAKE IT. It sounds legit and the dollar signs are hard to turn down. But you won't make that money, you'll lose it. You'll come away exhausted and broke. If you're willing to work over 80 hours a week, 7 days a week, then go for it. Prepare for no social life and problems beyond your imagination.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sugar coat the job
