Building Your Work Experience
Posted by on
Rating: 4/51
AUSTIN, TEXAS -- This is a great opportunity for college students wanting a hands on experience in what it takes to run a business. I learned plenty of good skills like building rapport with customers, building your own customer base with your own two feet, and especially time management which I am very thankful for right now as a sophomore in college. This is very different than any other internship and gives you more skills than you can learn sitting in an office.

Challenging, but Life-Changing

CINCINNATI, OHIO -- In the very beginning, I was recruited at the University of Cincinnati. I went through multiple interviews and eventually was hired as an intern/branch manager. Began training in the Spring and began meeting with homeowners to provide work for the Summer. When Summer rolled around, I hired my painting crews to produce the homes that had decided to work with me back in the Spring. I would definitely recommend the program, especially to anyone looking to work in business or start their own business in the future.

DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA -- I have learned so much as an intern with College Works Painting. I have real experience with managing and running my own business that sets me apart from my peers. This internship required hard work and dedication to see success, but I learned how to grow my clientele base, hire and manage employees, satisfy my clients, and control the finances. It was an unforgettable experience.

Painting My House
Posted by on
Rating: 5/51
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- I contracted College Works to paint my home in Sandy Utah. The home is older and had many areas that concerned me. Jonathan and his crew examined these areas and performed the necessary prep work (caulking, scraping, sanding, etc.) that needed to happen prior to painting.

They were very meticulous with their work, and addressed each area on the house thoroughly. Now that the house is painted, it looks absolutely amazing. I am very impressed with their work and recommend them to all.

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- I had my house painted 11 years ago by College Works Painting. I saw the reviews online and thought that others might want to know my job has still held up and does not need to be painted yet.

Warranty?????

Rating: 1/51
ST. ANN, MISSOURI -- In 2009 I hired [snip]to re glaze my bath tub. The product featured a 5 year warranty with some restrictions. Within 2 years the product began to peel and chip. After getting in touch with [snip]he offered to fix a defective product by charging me $75. He claimed the damage was my fault and strongly defended his point of view as an owner operator. I have filed a complaint with the BBB.

College Works- Bad bad choice for a Paint job
Posted by on
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI -- Without the doubt, the absolute worst choice one can make for an exterior paint job.

We hired College works for an external paint job and the entire ordeal was a debockle. There was little to no prep work done (the most important aspect of an exterior paint job) and paint everywhere! It was a real mess.

Fortunately we halted the work before it was finished and hired a new painting (Experienced) company to start all over again (which was a must). Every painter that bid on our house was appalled at the little to no prep work (poor powerwashing, no caulking, very little to no sanding) done on our house, which is over 100 yrs old. The amount of paint everywhere was also troubling- driveway, brick work, garage door, the roof, everywhere. I don't think a drop cloth was ever used.

The kids that were doing the work, were polite, however they received little to no guidance on how to do their job. I felt bad that these kids were not even provided the basic skills at painting.

I highly advise for anyone needing an exterior paint job- to look elsewhere or you will be repainting your house in a couple years.

College Students Perform A Great Painting Service
Posted by on
RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CALIFORNIA -- College Works Painting did an AWESOME job of painting my summer home. Their students were courteous and paid attention to the smallest detail. Their pricing was hundreds lower than the local contractors.

The last time I hired a high-priced contractor, it took weeks before he even got STARTED. 2 of the contractors that were supposed to come to my house and give me an estimate and never showed or called again. College Works Painting showed up when they said they would, called when they said they would and did the job that they promised for the same money as the 'one coat latex' jobs the other guys were trying to pitch.

I've seen some others arguing that these students are under trained and only have a couple years of hands on experience, sheesh folks, it's not about how you work your wrist with the paintbrush, its about how much the painter cares about the job he does. These students paid attention to details and surpassed my expectations by far.

Thanks College Works Painting, I will use you again and refer my friends and family!

Worst Paint Job Ever
Posted by on
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- I had College Works paint my house last year and it was unprofessional, poorly done, sloppy and they left my home a mess. I complained several times; they sent out one service person to verify yet the fix-it painters never came. Sent several pictures to a company executive who told me it was "the worst paint job I've ever seen by any company." Yet they've never made it up, made repairs, finished cleaning--and now the original job is already peeling and nailheads are showing through.

They are all talk, no action and did a wholly unprofessional job for a professional price.


Here are some example photos:
