Simple Summer Job for College Students
Working for college works painting gave me some basic project management experience and allowed to develop some client servicing skills. Pay structure can fluctuate from job to job and hard work is rewarded.

Didn't really train you properly. Felt unsafe on the ladders and setting up the harness. You will literally have nonstop work if you want to beat budget.

You are starting your own painting business with multiple mentors and people to help you learn the skills required. You will end up hiring employees, doing a lot of sales, and getting rejected... a lot. This is all part of the learning process and you will get better as you go along, but do not take this internship if you are not ready to work harder than you ever have. I did this two years ago, and most people quit because it is too hard but the ones that do appreciate the experience it gave them while the others were not willing to work hard enough and end up disliking the company as a whole. People who say this is a pyramid scheme are wrong because without the mentorship and environment I would have never been able to do this on my own.

The training was great, but management could be better. You'll have to want it to succeed in this job. You're out in the field marketing which can be a pain when you're not getting the conversion rate you're hoping for.
