You will become very close with your coworkers (at least where I’m at). I would give the relationships between coworkers a 4-5 stars but the relationship between employees and upper management a 1-2 star. Most employees do not feel their feedback is even wanted or acknowledged, let alone listened to. Many of us don’t even feel comfortable speaking up, for fear of getting on the company’s bad side because yes, they do play favoritism.

After the initial application process you may be asked to sit in on a class to experience the environment - yes, the employees will be subtly eyeing your painting to see how it turns out. If it turns out decently and you were personable to them they will give that feedback to management, who may then call you back for an interview. If that goes well you may be invited to a paint-off - meaning you will do a small faux demo class to a couple of managers, so that they can see how your teaching performance goes. If all goes well you will most likely be hired after that. You will have three training shifts and then you will start as an assistant. After several weeks you will have your first lead instruction.

Portfolio is obviously a must, both drawing and copying skills and smoothly blending paint. Having more official schooling like an art degree definitely helps. Being available on nights and weekends is pretty necessary, it's somewhat inadvisable to interview here if you like to go out a lot during those times, unless you don't mind only getting a couple shifts a month. And as the previous commenter said, being upbeat and easy to talk to is a large part of the job. If you're extremely timid or don't know how to joke and relate with strangers, this is may not be the job for you.

No, you do need to be 18. We serve alcohol and you need to be 18 in the state of NY in order to do so. They will pay for you to get certified in TIPS Alcohol Serving Training.
