Challenging and physically demanding work in difficult conditions
Painter (Former Employee) – West Lafayette, IN – April 19, 2017
I would get to the job site and prepare paints and tools for the day of work ahead with fellow co-workers. The jobs differed between interior and exterior work of houses, depending on the request of the customer. We would assign ourselves tasks to work on for the day, whether that was scraping, sanding, priming, or painting. I learned how to push myself to work hard, efficiently, and quickly. Working with only a few co-workers build my team and communication skills. Everyone got along and worked diligently to accomplish daily goals. The hardest part was facing a fear of heights and spending long hours in the summer heat. I enjoyed making connections with co-workers and the lessons I learned about how hard work pays off in the end.
Good pay, flexible hours, nice coworkers and boss, challenging job
