Eric, welcome aboard. Don't let some of these SOB's sorry old buzzards rattle your cage.
I'm glad we have youngblood posting and standing up as professionals after 3 years
in Job Corp.
Can you tell me what kind of experience you been getting there?
Is it class room and then work with contractors looking for some form of apprentice labor?
You get payed while you work for them and when the works over you go back to the vo tech?
Then you wait for another contractor looking for help?
As for the union where ever you decide on working look up the IUPAT for that district go in and sign up.
Unless there is a hiring freeze you should be in. And even if there is a freeze they will even help you find a non signatory contractor to work for.
Eric if your getting payed to paint your a Professional.

I think you miss the point. Its an "Introductions" section. If someone isnt going to welcome someone, why bother posting? And no, I dont get tired of welcoming anyone new here or saying the same thing over and over. If I do get tired of it, I wont click the thread and reply.

Well i joined the trade school but before i did i was working with someone for 2 years prior. The only thing was that it was under the table work so thats the only down side, and trying to get a job with telling employers you only have under the table experience is like suicide. so iam currently at jc so that i can get documented work experience, because anyone can say that they worked under the table and just lie to an employer

Better yet, I say we just close up and no more new members. Yeah, we can all just hang out and shoot the chit among us. Come to think of it.....exactly WHAT is the purpose of this site again? Im starting to wonder And again, welcome to Paint Talk Eric. I gotta appologize for a few around here who did a lotta spraying lacquers and epoxies without a respirator. I suggest you wear yours
Thanks for havin my back woodland

Really??? thats just rude man who are you to judge another painters abilitys. I might not have 15 years experience, or a "SUPER PRO STATS!" but i know my stuff, i know products like the back of my hand, i know correct application techniques, i dont know everything about the trade but there is no such thing as a painter that knows eveything. My names eric and iam a Professinal painter, and thats what im stickin with

Good to see ya back again Eric. You obviously have a passion for painting and I say take it and roll with it. Yes, the undocumented hours wont count with any legit employer, but it is your experience and always will be. You picked up skills you can apply to your trade. So, you will probably go to work as a 2nd term apprentice which is fine because it will all be documented now. Get signed up with your local. I like seeing any young people join the Union. I was a member for years and am now vested with a pension coming someday. Not sure how things are in Ct, but with the economy things are still very slow but that will change. Get signed up and stay patient. Eventually you will get hooked up with a good shop and get your chance to shine

Welcome Eric!
There are so many "experienced" painters we don't hire.

They all have many "one year experiences"

You will need to grow a few emotional calluses and you’ll be just fine. Stick around here long enough and you will be forced to.
