Paint Prep + General Labor

  • Status: Currently Active
  • Team: Production
  • Location: Akron
  • Type: Full Time, Permanent
  • Timeframe: ASAP

Position Description:

Our paint prep team helps get bodies and other equipment ready for paint and liner. Proper prep is the key to a quality paint job!

Previous automotive paint experience would be helpful but not required. We’ve taken several team members with zero experience and quickly trained them up. Must be comfortable with small hand tools and have a good attention to detail. We are happy to train anyone that wants to be a valuable member of our team.

The process starts by using basic hand tools to disassemble lights, latches, etc. Then we use DA’s, scuff pads and other hand tools to prep the surface area. Bodies are masked off and painted. Bodies are then re-masked off and sprayed with bed liner. All equipment will then go through a quality check and any defects are corrected before reassembly.
