Many colleges are banning College Pro from their campus & here's why:
If you sign a contract you are immediately responsible for paying them $3,000+ even if you decide the next day you no longer want to be in the company.
Over-promise, under-perform. They advertise you'll make X% of total business revenue, but in reality only 1% may actually achieve that. The only way to make a decent wage or break even is to run a $110k+ business which maybe 1% of Franchisees actually achieve, leaving the rest of the Franchisees in debt
Poor management. They advertise themselves as "coaches & mentors" & that you'll work for yourself, but in reality they micromanage you & threaten to terminate your contract if your under performing, due to a lack of actual coaching. If you are terminated you're forced to pay $3-10k for the business overhead. When you ask your General Manager for help you'd be lucky if they answered their phone. When they do answer, they usually refer you to another Franchisee who's also in their 1st year.
Outdated. The company still utilizes the brush & roll techniques for painting. Every other painting company laughs at you in Sherwin Williams for such an outdated method. When asked if I could use a paint sprayer or electric sander i was denied, although it was "my business".
Reason of review: Work Experience or Job Application.
