Our hiring process at Mike’s Quality Painting
All the positions we have at Mike’s Quality Painting go through an extensive hiring process. The positions we currently have are: apprentice painter, painter, and crew leader, management positions (field supervisor and sales rep).
First step to our process is posting a great ad for the position.
Second step, we contact the applicant and have a phone interview, collect their resume, and invite them to come to our job fair.
If we are hiring for apprentice painters, painters, or crew leaders, we have applicants come to our job fair. We have them fill out an application at the job fair and then we have them run through a skill assessment course, just to see what their skill level is and where to place them in our crews. Lastly we do an interview at the job fair. The key things we look for in a candidate are: a great attitude, being on time, and great customer service skills. Sometimes the actual skills can be taught, but a good attitude and good work ethic can’t be taught. We only want the best for our clients.
Once we choose an applicant we offer them a try out for two weeks to see if they are a good fit for us and them. If after that process it seems to work out they will then be hired for a 90 day probationary period. We will of course have every employee do a drug and background check.
For our management staff we use a recruiter to help us choose the best candidates.
We only want the best employees for our clients and company. We go through an immense hiring process so only the best people come into your home or office.
