Be sure to keep asking questions through the summer
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – November 8, 2017
As a branch manager, I soared to the top 15 managers in sales for the spring. However, I experienced major burnout as I went into the summer to paint for the first time with very little training . They gave me advanced training and support for sales, but very little training for painting and training painters. This really hurt me. They also never explained the way the finances worked early on, so I shot myself in the foot by never creating a budget and goal. All in all, the sales training was phenomenal and great company culture. Creating goals, managing time and being an effective leader are all put to the test. I could have done more to succeed, but I let my burn out from the Spring get the best of me. Never stop asking for help, and make friends with the other branch managers, They will teach you what your DM doesn't.
Please note: you can make pretty good money doing this SO I HAVE HEARD. This was not my experience however due to poor management of my finances.
Excellent sales, and finance training
The hustle never stops, grind for 6 months straight.
