Posted in College Pro Scam?

A College Pro Painters Scam? Satisfied customers and students respond with a resounding “No!” College Pro Painters, which has been leading college students to their career potentials through franchise opportunities for over forty years, has recently become victim to online criticism. Unhappy former students make unfounded claims that reference hard work, training, and profitability. Who better to refute such claims than those who have been a part of the program themselves?

College Pro prides itself upon customer satisfaction, which is why accusations of a College Pro Painters scam can be admittedly frustrating. The company goes to great lengths to hire only the most dedicated, serious students who truly want to serve their communities and grow personally. In fact, only 700 franchise managers are chosen of the 25,000 who apply.  One of them is Cory Powell. Now a sales engineer, he was once a franchise manager.

“I developed a more refined sense of leadership as a result of being a Franchise Manager,” he said. “The experience with College Pro, much to the contrary of what my fellow engineers had initially thought, enhanced my engineering degree. It allowed me to present myself to corporate recruiters as a person with a well-rounded background.”

Not unlike other customer service businesses, College Pro Painters has been subject to complaints. A College Pro Painters scam has been claimed by few former college students involved in College Pro’s program, which offers them the opportunity to own and operate their own painting business. Countless satisfied College Pro alumni, however, refute such claims with their own resounding success.

The main issue argued in the College Pro Painters scam claims is the unexpected amount of work involved in the program. College Pro does not hide that students will need to push themselves mentally and physically as franchisees. In fact, it is disclosed directly on the company website: “As a College Pro Manager, you should be prepared to work long and hard to make your business successful. And we are in this with you every step of the way. Our exceptional leadership and management training program provides the tools you need to succeed.”

Many alumni, though, found that very work ethic developed through the program is what led to its benefits.  One former London, Ontario franchisee Sal Spitale counts the hard work as a contributor to his future endeavors as well as his ties to his community.
