We are looking to hire an experienced commercial painter to our team in the Minneapolis area.

Default Hiring Painters

We run thru this everyday trying to find good painters. I have thought that the trades schools should teach classes in this in hopes to inspire someone. Painting is 1 of a few trades that they dont have trade schools for here in OHIO. I went to trade school and was truely insiped to become the best carpenter out there. We often have workshops for the local Boy Scouts and youth groups in hopes to spark some interest. If we dont teach the youth our trades Who will? HELP the Dieing Trades!!!!

Yep, and that $8.00 starting wage is pretty enticing too...

Hiring. My least favorite task. I would start with an ad at the paint stores and maybe craigslist leaving only a fax# to send a resume. Hire slow and fire fast. Be very selective. Collect resume's. Check references and do background checks. I went through 8 painters this summer, but was so busy I didnt take the time to properly screen. Lesson learned. Went through 8 of the worst painters I have had the misfortune of working in my 30 year career. Next season will be different.

Nail on the head. the president of a former employer of mine told me that he will start hiring new blood when we have a major project of 6 months +. when i queried as to the why his response was that in those 6 or more months he can afford to run through 20-30 prospects to find the 1 or 2 that are worth having.

I love it when your interviewing some one for painting and they say "yes I can paint" then you ask about cutting in and they say "I know how to roll a wall I have never used a brush"

I wish the graveyard shift wasn't digging up so many dead threads lately.

Why all the interest lately ?

I get a kick out of the ones who think theres nothing to painting and try to lie about their experience saying they have 3 or 4 years and they have never painted a day in their life.
