Awards, Events, Incentives

At Student Works, we believe in rewarding people for hitting both short and long term goals. We have both a District Manager and company sponsored prizes, events and incentives.
Our first big event is our Annual Award Ceremony and Boat Cruise in Vancouver on the Labour Day long weekend. Our second big event is an incentive trip to Mexico for those people who have hit a certain production targets. Over one third of our operators win the week in Mexico.

Previous Operators Speak

Launch Yourself With A Passion

Encourage you to not simply give this a try, but rather to launch yourself into this with a passion

Lessons for Everyday Life

Many of the things I learned had nothing to do with managing a painting business at all, but could be applied to many aspects of my everyday life. A ton of fun and couldn’t have done it without the SWP network of support.

Will Not Make Same Mistake Twice

The faster you fail, the more you will learn from it. You will not make the same mistake twice.
