PAINTER APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
At Zoe’s, we want our employees to succeed and feel confident in their work. Each new employee that we hire comes in with their own experience, skillset, and overall take on what it means to be a great painter. Training in the painting field is often informal, on-the-job, and led by experienced painters that may or may not teach proper painting technique.
We expect all of our painters to uphold certain standards of quality that our customers have come to expect. Because of this, we train all new employees, regardless of experience or skill-level.
Our Painter Apprenticeship Program is designed to:
- Provide hands-on learning for individuals with little or no experience in the painting trade.
- Assess skill and competency among experienced painters and provide an opportunity for advancement.
The Painter Apprenticeship is made up of two positions: Trainee and Prepper. All new employees will be considered for one of these positions, depending on direct paid experience.
Experienced painters that demonstrate skill and consistently meet our standards of quality will quickly advance to a Painter position.
