Basic Requirements

We have a very structured and detailed hiring process. All painters applying to our painting and staining company are required to go through two interviews and submit to a drug screen and national criminal background check. Physical demands are climbing a 24-32 foot ladder, reaching, twisting, bending, squatting, walking, pulling, pushing, grasping, lifting full 5 gallons buckets of paint, drywall dust, paint fumes, working on your knees at times and standing throughout most of the shift.

Experienced Positions

Experienced painters may be asked to complete and pass a 70 question foreman painting exam originated by our trade association, Painting Contractors of America and take a “hands on” painting test.

Inexperienced Positions

You be trained personally by the owner, Jason Matthews, in our training area for 1 week which includes previewing 80 plus training videos.  After your initial training, you will be working under different painting crew leaders to continue your paint training in the field.  Your Crew leader will work right beside and your painting work will be inspected several times an hour in the beginning to ensure my clients are getting the paint quality that I promised them.

All of our painters are employees rather than sub-contractors who are uniformed, courteous to one another, and hard working, providing the best in customer service and satisfaction. We are also a smoke and vape free company!
