Franchisee Owner (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 August 2019
I had the benefit of running a Student Works Painting franchise throughout my entire time in University. One of the most life changing experiences by far. It was definitely a ton of hard work at times but the challenges and issues I had to deal with helped shape me into the person I am today. If it were easy, it wouldn't be worth doing. The support I had from my district manager and other franchisees was amazing and I was fully trained to learn every detail that I needed to succeed. I made an incredible amount of money for a young individual and upon graduation I had purchased my first home and a new car.
After graduating I had the opportunity to become a district manager and was challenged even more. I had to now teach and mentor students to run the same business that I had for so many years. It was great to see so many people grown and develop over such a short period of time. I can't say enough great things about this company and hope that all young, ambitious, and out going students take on the challenge!
Ridiculous pay, great training, personal development, awesome culture, free trip to Mexico
Need a bit of money to invest in yourself, long hours if disorganized, making so much money in a short period of time makes you not value money as much
