Prairie Rose Painting and Roofing is dedicated to helping you, a college or highschool student, follow your dreams by providing you with the best employment opportunities during school. We hire only college and highschool students and are passionate about seeing you succeed. This makes for a great culture by encouraging meeting new people and having fun at work.
You are the reason our customers receive an enjoyable experience that is different than the typical contractor employee experience. This shows in our 98% approval rating and being in business since 2007. We complete 100-200 painting projects a year and hoping you can help us grow.
If you are the type of person that would rather flip burgers or fold clothing at the mall, this job isn't for you, but if you want a challenge and the reward of seeing what your hard work can do please apply. Nothing is better than seeing the pride that a homeowner can take in their house again. Also, each year one of our hard working students is awarded a scholarship, internship opportunities available. We look forward to having you help continue on our tradition!

Our workers are always extremely hard working and dedicated to making money for their schooling over the summer. We know how hard it is to be a student, pay tuition, and just make it by.
Each summer we award one or more outstanding painters with a worker scholarship. Prairie Rose Painting and Roofing makes an initial contribution towards this scholarship. Our generous customers are given the opportunity to make a donation. When it comes to deciding who should receive the scholarship, 3-5 customers and community members on our panel will award the scholarship based on need for the money, dedication to your schooling, and how well their customer's experiences are positive and memorable ones.
Awards are upwards of $1,000!
