College Pro Painters Complaints and Reviews
you did work for my mom and it was quite some time ago the work was ***.He then came to get his ladders and didn't even finish the work wow really ???

College Pro took a deposit, but never showed up to do the work when they said they would be there. The girl who estimated said she under quoted the job, and she would have to do the work herself expecting me to say oh, then charge me more!. She would give a date to come, and just not show up, She never returned calls unless I called her supervisor, who also stopped returning calls, I requested a refund of my deposit, which I am still waiting...Read more
J'avais une franchise collège pro, on m'avais promis beaucoup d'argent, beaucoup de soutien et beaucoup de reconnaissance, cependant je suis maintenant loin de cette situation. J'ai été très mal formé au niveau de la peinture, du marketing, de la gestion du temps, de la gestion des finances. Comme j'avais été mal formé j'ai signer très peu de contrat, je n'avais donc pas un chiffre d'affaire assez élevé pour me permettre d'engager des employés,...Read more
College Pro Painters House Painting Review

Worst company ever! Took 3 months to paint my house, missed spots all over, over sprayed our new windows, painted our stone wall, didn't paint soffits, or doors and didn't paint over a rooftop that couldn't be seen from the ground!

NEVER WORK FOR THIS CHEATING COMPANY! They do not pay their workers the correct amount. All the managers will lie on how much you make an hour. Working minimum wage and getting a bonus for beating budget? Total lie. You work minimum wage and get no bonus. Beware of these scam artists.

College Pro Painters House Painting Review
by anonymous #869382
Used two different crews over 3 years. Overall horrible preperation on my deck. Came back did some warranty work. Have called again for help. No response. Not professional, bad planning and management skills. Do not use.
I contracted these guys to PAINT our house a couple years ago. The guys that came over seems to do a good job of "painting" our house except the paint seemed to be way more flat than the stuff that was on there previously. Last year the plywood siding started to bubble and come apart. I did a closer inspection to find the "paint" had shrunk and there were cracks everywhere in the wood of the siding. I called College Pro and the kid there said...Read more
I am a parent of a franchisee. College Pro is in the business of making money for College Pro despite what they tell you about training and personal growth and developing entrepreneurs. Hogwash. They will suck you in and make you pay for the privilege of earning them money. My son worked 80 hours per week, dealing with rude and opportunistic customers, people slamming doors in his face, on top of 40 foot ladders in the blazing heat, dealing...Read more
I signed a contract with John Najera of College Pro Painters on July 1,2016 and gave him $500.00 deposit. He said they would start painting at the end of July. August 1- he states he is behind and would start August 5th. August 5th- No Show, No phone call. Finally made contact late that evening. He said he would be there August 6th. Once again No show ,No phone call. August 7 & 8 - No show, No phone call. On August 8th- I sent a text to his...Read more
Jon Yvon, "Senior Franchise Manager," came to my house three weeks ago and gave me an estimate, which I accepted. He returned this week to start the work, but he had to wait for his painting crew to arrive. In the interim, we walked around the house reviewing the work we agreed to do, He then had me sign a College Pro Painters contract, which he then co-signed, and asked for a 10% payment up front and I wrote out a check. Since his crew had...Read more
When the college pro representative came out to give us a proposal we told him there were two things we were adamant about, 1) caulking, the last painter we hired did not do it this time it must be done. 2)the paint must be satin, absolutely did NOT want flat paint. He agreed to all. I was at work when they painted, they insisted it be signed off on that day, paint was still wet. When the paint dried it was obviously flat paint. College Pro...Read more
8/19/16 What an inconvenience. Andrew still has not returned my deposit check after trying to get the guy to come do a one day job for the past 3 months. We were promised to be one of the first customers of the summer. We signed up May 15th, and finally cancelled the job two weeks ago. I used College Pros to paint my house a few years ago. Couldn't have been more happy. This time around I couldn't be more disappointed. I don't recommend this...Read more
Recently had a full house painting job sort of completed. The job was suppose to start in early June, they got to it the last part of July. Nice kids but definitely kids and far from professional in quality of work and care around the job site. First day was prep and primer with small drops of primer deposited on my brand new trexx deck. Big promises of cleaning up, but not done very well. Later that afternoon 3 of the 4 spent more time and...Read more
