If You Love Flexibility and Creativity, Work at Paint Nite
Paint Nite’s customers hit the ground painting when they come to one of the company’s events. Paint Nite hosts two-hour painting sessions at local bars where customers get to have fun drinking cocktails with friends while local artists teach them how to unlock their creative sides.
Paint Nite’s employees get the same opportunity to be creatively challenged, try new things, and learn fast on the job—and have fun while doing it. Paint Nite’s main passion and priority is to professionally mold its employees into passionate art enthusiasts and collaborators.
But the company doesn’t do this by running a tight ship. Instead, they do it by throwing people into the job on day one and letting them “sink or swim”—which isn’t always easy but allows employees to learn valuable skills quickly and can apply them to any situation. And then? They set them free to do their work.
“What I like about the culture here at Paint Nite is that if you’re getting your job done and you’re delivering, then your manager can reward you with the flexibility that you need,” shares Jennifer Davis, the head of research and development. “I trust my employees to do a great job, and I give them a lot of leeway to be creative.”
So what types of hires is Paint Nite looking to mold?
“We’re looking for people who not only have the right skill sets, but the right mindset,” says David Kimmelman, the director of talent acquisition.
“If you’re fun and dynamic—with lots of energy—and you aren’t afraid to speak up and get your hands dirty, then you’ll be successful here at Paint Nite,” adds Davis.
