Job Description

Do you have a creative way that you like to express yourself? Perhaps you’d be interested in painting this town red? PeopleReady is now hiring Painters who can bring a positive attitude and professional flair to the jobsite.

Professional painters begin by preparing surfaces for painting. This may require removing old paint, filling holes, and washing walls. Sandpaper, wire brushes, scrapers, and abrasive blasting may be used to prepare surfaces. The Painter fills holes and divots with putty, plaster, or caulk, and then ensures that surfaces are not susceptible to moisture by sealing cracks and corners where building materials meet. After a surface is clean and ready for paint, professional painters apply primer and paint at the appropriate spread rate and temperature in order to ensure the best results. Primer selection is based on the location and type of surface being finished. Painters also handle jobsite preparation and cleanup. They may build scaffolding and use drop cloths or tape in order to clean paint spills, dust from sanding, and other materials, and remove them from a completed jobsite. Although some painters do all types of painting, many specialize in one type, such as new construction, signs, exterior or interior work, or remodeling. Regardless of the type, we would love to talk more about this full-time opportunity.
