View Full Version : Chicago Area - Need a Job? I'm hiring...

06-05-2008, 11:02 PM
I need some extra guys for a paint crew I'm running in the NW Chicago Suburbs. Specifically Elgin, South Elgin, Dundee, and Algonquin. The majority of the work is in Algonquin.

The pay is set @ $10.00 and the hours are calculated as piece work (ie: 1 hour per 100 sqr ft of first level rolling). Most guys end up averaging out at $10.00 an hour and making around $100.00 a day. I do have a guy that makes around $13.00 per hour because of the way he paints but you will see if you come out.

It is exterior painting and is primarily full time. Hours are obviously dependant on weather factors but for the most part you'll be receiving 30-40hrs per week and getting paychecks around $250-500 depending on how the week went.

If you're able bodied and motivated, let me know. Some people do really well with this and making almost more money than I do and I'm the owner so keep an open mind.

Contact me be email at [email protected] or send me a PM. Leave a phone number for me to call you during the evening because I am usually working during the daylight hours.
