We hire only the most driven and dedicated college students so that all of our customers can be 100% satisfied.

Last year’s average student summer earnings were approximately $10,000. Program participants gain real world business experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere else. The communication, interpersonal, decision-making, and leadership skills that you will learn will make you more attractive to full-time employers upon graduation.

We may be in the ‘painting’ business, but we are also in the ‘people’ business. We have a passion for training young men and women on how to begin their journey as a young professional in the working world.
