I worked at Scholars At Your Service full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It is a great chance to get a feel of what it's like to run your own small business; learn a lot about sales; managing production; paint tech; seeking, interviewing, hiring, training and managing employees; meet a lot of nice and not so nice clients; make good money; improve confidence

Cons

training for managing a job site is poor; most focus is on sales training so that you sell as much jobs as possible; producing work is overlooked; hiring good people is tough and the company does not provide good training in this area

Advice to Management

Rely only on yourself, nothing will happen if you don't work hard to get it; use the support network, peers, GMs, suppliers, your family, as much as you can; DO NOT GIVE UP, there is always another day!

    I worked at Scholars At Your Service (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro was being outside and have fresh air.

    Cons

    Cons:
    -Staff were rude and clique-like. Both the staff and management were disrespectful and referred to me as 'Hey, you."
    -Management were far from being supportive.
    -The "training" was only 30 minutes
    -Lack of direction when it came trying to complete the tasks (clashing viewpoints from staff)
    -I was never paid a single cent for the time I spent working for this company

    Advice to Management

    A complete training program would be nice so that future employees would be aware of techniques when painting.

    I have been working at Scholars At Your Service full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very well organized company. They provide the right resources and training for every employee to succeed. Working with Scholars is more than just a 'punch in - punch out' kind of job... They genuinely care about their employees and furthermore the clients they do work for. Will continue to speak highly of Scholars At Your Service.

    Cons

    People who are not driven or lack ambition may not fit in well with the business. For those looking to take home a minimum wage cheque with no aspirations for the future, this is not the job for you. The opportunity is always present to make higher compensation and earn promotions, however without the right work ethic employees may feel they are not being compensated fairly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
