    I worked at College Pro Painters as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Ability to work with friends. Reasonable summer job for a college student.

    Cons

    "Managers" are college students who pay for right to operate College Pro franchise. It is very difficult for them to recoup their costs. Some exceptional managers are able to do quite well, and College Pro highly publicizes these rare success stories. Most managers, however, end up breaking even or losing money for the summer. The organization is structured like a pyramid scheme, preying on the naive optimism of the college-age "managers" it recruits, the willingness of untrained, college-age "painters" to work for minimum wage, and the generosity/naivety of anyone who would hire a team of woefully inept college students to paint their house.
