Painter Jobs

If you have an eye for detail, good motor coordination, and a high regard for neat workmanship and are comfortable working on ladders and scaffolding, you can pursue a career as a PAINTER.

What are Working Conditions for Painters?

Most painters eitherwork for construction or building maintenance companies, or as self-employed contractors.

A company painter:

  • Reports to a boss who assigns tasks, supervises performance and troubleshoots problems.
  • Normally works regular hours and receive fixed wages and various other benefits.
  • May belong to a local labor union which negotiates wage and benefits packages for its members, provides access to on-the-job training programs and offers a reasonable degree of job security.

Self-employed contractors:

  • Typically work for individuals and have considerable freedom and flexibility in scheduling their work and deciding how to approach a job.
  • May be asked to exercise some degree of creative judgment in deciding what materials to use for finishing an exterior space or what colors and wall and floor coverings to apply to an interior space
  • Have less job and income security than the company painter, but greater autonomy and earning potential and more opportunity for creative expression
What do Painters Do?

Painters are manual workers. They use hand tools and automated equipment to apply sealants, paint, wallpaper and other finishes to interior and exterior surfaces. They have to prepare the surfaces before beginning, and clean up after finishing a job.

Company paint jobs typically involve:

  • Mixing the paints or cutting the wallpaper strips and preparing the paste
  • Clearing the workspace, covering nearby surfaces and objects, and taping off the treatment area
  • Cleaning, scraping, filling cracks and holes, sanding, priming, and sealing the treatment area
  • Applying the paint or wallpaper, using the necessary tools (e.g. brushes, rollers, or spray equipment),
  • Applying second coats of paint or touch-ups when necessary

Self-employed contractors also:

  • Examine the surfaces to decide which procedures and techniques should be used
  • Determine the type and quantity of paints, finishes, wallpaper and supplies required and place the orders
  • Create decorative effects and special finishes
  • Make estimates and issue invoices and receipts

To become a painter, a person must:

  • Be knowledgeable about paints and finishes, and their properties;
  • Know how to create the proper compound specifications for paint mixing;
  • Possess thorough knowledge of sandblasting, hydro-blasting, and steam-cleaning tools and techniques and related safety regulations.

Painters working on a construction or renovation project need to be able to move around the work site with ease and carry equipment and supplies weighing up to 40 pounds.

Self-employed contractors require good interpersonal communication and customer service skills and good business skills. Painters who travel with their own or company gear must possess a driver’s license and good driving record.

All painters need to pay close attention to safety issues such as ladder safety and use of appropriate protective gear when working with materials that emit noxious gases or fumes, or in dusty or noisy locations.

There are no formal educational requirements to become a painter. Instead, skills are learned through apprenticeship programs or journeyman painter positions, which provide on-the-job training.
