This is the biggest group of scam artists I have ever heard of. They go into schools recruiting young kids, promising them great business experience for their education. They make it seem like a school program where they teach you to run a business for the summer, with mentors the guide you along the way. They trick you into signing an agreement to run your own franchise. YOUNG KIDS RUNNING THEIR OWN FRANCHISE WITH NO EXPERIENCE WHAT SO EVER!... Read more

I used College Pro service almost ten years ago. The paint job that was done was not professional at all. The painters that came to my house I do not think they were college students. I expressed my concern with the person that wrote the invoice and I paid. He at one time said that I was expecting too much. For the amount of money that I paid I did expect professional work.It took weeks for the person that I paid and signed with to come back and... Read more

In a silence study room on the OSU campus and one of the college painter representatives keeps making phones calls to try to get people to paint there homes. Let your representatives know there are more appropriate places to make phone calls, will never use this company with just how abnoxious this man is being. Add comment

My nephew spent last summer working as a franchise owner for College pro. The entire program is a ripoff for the kids. The only one who makes money is college pro. Kids have to pay a 24% royalty of gross sales back to college pro. They charge the kids for all materials at exhorbitant rates. They hold meetings and make the kids pay for the meeting room, hotel, etc. My nephew worked his tail off from January thru September setting up... Read more

They are better sales people than they are painters. They bring a seasoned veteran with them and that guys does most of the talking, then when you sign the deal the head painter shows up and brings some snot nosed kids with them. They didn't scrape my house, didn't power wash anything, they simply painted over existing paint. When I asked why the answer I got was "my power washer is broken and my dad won't lend me the money to fix it." I... Read more

- Showed up a month late - Painted half of my fence a deep, dark brown instead of the transparent cedar color we wanted. - Was promised by the regional manger that they would fix it. - They used the right color on the deck but never fixed the fence. - Started working with them in May and eventually had to do it myself in October because the weather was getting cold. - Never got my deposit back. - What a bunch of scam artists. Never, ever work... Read more

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. The paint looks like it washed off the house. They promised to come back numerous times but either no showed or just splashed a little paint around and did not correct the problems. They are just a bunch of college kids who are nice enough but are not professional and have no supervision. You are welcome to come by my house to see the type of job they do. call 515-865-8117 do set a time to see just how bad of job they... Read more

I hired these guys because of the sales pitch but I was taken in. They said they would stay until I was satisfied. Man talk about be taken to the cleaners my grandson could have done a better job. They also painted part of the house in the rain and got paint everywhere and then took off. What a mess they left behind. I would NEVER use this company and suggest you also walk away. In the years I have lived in the house this by far has to be the... Read more

I have been waiting for over six month for "college pro" to come back to repaint my walls that have "feathered paint strokes" (not enough paint on the roller)......it looks horrible to be a so called professional paint job for the price I was charged. I have sent several emails and tried to reach by phone to "Kevin Rutter" of Columbus Ohio and got nothing but revised dates. Very poor customer service. It is obvious he is not going to fix this...
