Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – St. Albert, AB – 13 December 2016
For the time that I was there I did enjoy the job, but it was just that a job. Advancing within the company was not easy especially after it was taken over by a larger paint company. There was also always staff turnover, which could make life difficult.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 15 March 2016
Work is hard and fast paced with a lot of customers . Duties were to stock, tint, mix paint, colour match, clean, ring through sales, write reports based on customer sales. Nice working enviroment but the salary is not there.
Production Employee (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 18 October 2013
Great place to work overall but it could be better if upper management stopped promoting from inside. They hire uneducated and unqualified people to run the floor which gets you stuck in time without having any new ideas or technology ever having a chance in this place.
The good thing is that it cant keep going on like this......well the company is over 100 years old, oh no!

Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Calgary Alberta – 18 September 2012
A typical day at General Paint would hardly be considered a dull day. I assist a team of 4 sales reps, an accountant, and the counter staff. In addition, I am responsible for the order desk. Dealers who sell General Paint products rely on me for their orders. I create, edit, manage documents, and assist the sales reps with their client's needs. General Paint has accounts for a few large corporations. Therefore, I am always in demand when there are inquires from these account holders. I would consider the front counter staff to hold the hardest position, and they create an environment that is enjoyable to work in. With respects to the management, there is room for improvement. As for training, I was provided with less than a week. In addition, there was nobody I could rely on for assistance when I took over the position.
