Pros: Easy, lots of learning, fast paced
Cons: Lifting 5 gallon buckets
A typical day is steady and fast paced.
It involves answering phone calls, preparing paint orders, tinting paint, helping customers with paint color options or which type of paint to use, which product is better than another brand, and helping the customers take their paint out to their car.
I've learned multiple types of paints and which type of paint to use for which room. I've learned which colors work best in small or big rooms, or living room versus bathroom. I've also learned how to tint paint and or match a specific color the client would like to use for their room.
The hardest part of this job was learning to stain wood or tinting the stain to match a certain wood color.
I've worked at three different locations and the co-workers were always great. We all got along wonderfully and helped each other out.
The most enjoyable part of this job was helping customers pick their perfect color, unloading the truck, and tinting the paint. I loved it all.
