Cancun 2011-Work hard, play hard! #CWP   Leave a comment

Ocean view!!

The trip to Cancun is a celebration of the success from the year.  We gather all the District Managers, Regional Consultants, Vice Presidents, Presidents, and top producing Branch Opperators from all the CollegeWorks Painting companies in the U.S.  The top preformers are invited to attend, to celebrate their success, and to meet other members of the College Works Painting team.  We have a top gun event for contest winners, we have a banquet, and we go to the amazing Cancun clubs to enjoy our vacation. The trip to Mexico also kicks off the new CWP year with a bang, as we begin our recruiting when we return.

The managers get to live the “play” side of our work hard/play hard value.  They bond with other team members.  They see how much we appreciate them.  They get a taste of our retreat experience and can better look forward to the DM trainings in Park City and Las Vegas.  There is plenty of time for one on one interaction with College Works Painting execs, for sharing a more personal side, and for building relatioships that we can all draw on as we move into the new year.

Recognizing our hard working managers.

A testimonial from a happy intern.   Leave a comment

October 1, 2011

College Works Painting has been one of the most valuable experiences of my life, despite being one of the most challenging as well.  From beginning to end, I was impressed by CWP’s professionalism. During the interview process, CWP made sure that I was a good fit for the internship as well as allowing me to decide that CWP was a good fit for me. The 5-step interview process was very professional and well organized.

One of the key features of this internship that allowed me to be successful was the use of a District Manager (ex branch manager) to help guide me throughout the year. From beginning to end, my District Manager, Amanda Brooks, was a key resource of knowledge and support. I owe a large chunk of my success to her ability to train me in marketing, sales, employee and equipment managing, as well as the most important part- production. Amanda was almost always accessible and ready to help no matter the hour. Whether it was going door-to-door marketing or answering and early morning phone call to help with an estimate- she was there. It was also very helpful that Amanda had been a branch manager like myself because she could really relate to the things I was going through. Her patience with me was very important as well because she stuck with me through the good the bad and the ugly.

As a business minor student at the U of O, I had been learning a lot about marketing, advertising, managing, etc. and this internship allowed me to apply these things in the real world. This type of hands on connection from the textbook to the real world really has influenced my understanding of what it takes to run a successful business. It has also drawn to my attention what my strengths and weaknesses are in the business world. Now I know what areas to improve on so I can be a better business leader in the future.

Another great part of this internship for me was the fantastic-Fridays put on by the company. College Works Paintings recognized that balance is a very important aspect in life- so every other Friday the company put on a fun event. This summer I went white water rafting, camping, golfing, softball tournament and much more with ambitious, business savvy students like myself.

Upon completion of this internship I feel much more prepared to enter the job market in the near future. I have successfully turned a considerable profit running my own paint crew, managing equipment and supplies while delivering a quality end result for my customer. It has been one of the most challenging things I have done in my life, but I am glad I stuck it out and have grown a great deal from it. If you are looking for an internship that will prepare you for the real world, connecting the dots from textbook to the reality, then look no further; College Works Painting is for you.

Sincerely,

Andrew Meyer
