Painter, Toronto, ON - 16 March 2017
A typical day was long and often in high heat painting the exterior of houses. I learned how to prep and paint the exterior of houses as well as communication skills from interacting with customers to make sure they were satisfied with the job when it was finished. Management was hit and miss, this is because of a wide range of experience between managers many are first time managers while some have lots of experience. The other painters I worked with were fun and hardworking. This made the days fun and productive. The hardest part about the job was the heat and staying hydrated. Working all day in the sun is exhausting and staying hydrated is important. The most enjoyable part was spending time with other painters and seeing how repainting a house can really make a difference in its appearance.
