Searching for Paint Sprayer jobs? Well let us guide you through some of the requirements for the role and what you can expect as a Paint Sprayer.
A Paint Sprayer in the automotive industry would be required to carry out minor body repairs and apply both decorative finishes and protective coatings to all motor vehicles. A Paint Sprayer is normally needed when a customer wants a new colour on their vehicle, or if they have had a minor collision and need the bodywork restoring.
This is normally done in different stages which are listed below:
- Preparing the right equipment such as spray guns, paint brushes etc
- Preparing colours to ensure they are mixed correctly and meet the wants and needs of the customer.
- Preparing the car so it is ready to paint on. This is done by removing rust, filling in cavities and dents and covering areas so the colours don't run and mix.
- Applying each coat of paint separately. This is done to enhance the finished product and ensure it looks professional, each layer needs to dry before applying the next coat.
- Reviewing the job for quality control and to make sure the customer is happy with the outcome.
- Cleaning equipment and tidying the garage
An apprentice Paint Sprayer can earn anything up to £11,000 depending upon age and company size. A qualified Paint Sprayer can earn between £15,000 and £25,000 depending upon experience and company size. If you are specialist Paint Sprayer who can design and carry out very niche jobs then you could earn £28,000 and above.
A typical working week consists of 35 to 40 hours including weekends. The hours tend to be shift related meaning that each week can vary unless the company only operates between certain hours.
Most of the work will be spent in garage workshops which tend to be quite clean, especially with the bigger companies. Protective gear is always required in this job and is normally provided however for the smaller companies this will probably be discussed in the interview stage.
