Forest Paint has a paid summer internship opportunity for a high school student to work in their retail store. The individual would get an opportunity to work closely with the Equipment Technician and learn how to repair paint equipment (small motor engines) during the first half of the day and then move on to learn about tinting paint and the inner workings of a retail store based on a consultative sales approach.

This will be a part-time position, running from the end of the school year to the start of the school year. They are flexible on scheduling, so they can easily work with the right student to get a schedule that fits their needs. Eventually they will have a permanent position for the Equipment Technician as their current employee will likely retire in the future.

This could be a great opportunity for a student who wants to get their foot in the door now with Forrest. They have promoted out of the store many times throughout the years, including one of their top Technical Industrial Sales rep who started in the store at the age of 18.
