Employment Opportunities


Matthews’ Painting Co. is a reputable interior and exterior professional painting, staining, log home restoration, wallpaper stripping, drywall repair, and pressure washing firm that has been in business for over 20 years.

Our residential and commercial painting and staining business is expanding throughout the Warsaw, Winona Lake, Leesburg, Syracuse, Columbia City, North Manchester and Goshen Indiana areas.

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 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, 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 and Decorating Contractors of America and take a “hands on” painting test.

Inexperienced Positions

You will either be trained personally by the owner, Jason Matthews, in our training area which includes previewing 43 plus training videos and/or you will be working under a painting crew leader to be trained.  Your painting work will be inspected hourly in the beginning to ensure my clients are getting the paint quality that I promised them.

Serious Painters

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 free company!
