Thank you for your interest in Heffernan Painting Services. We are a professional painting organization where each member is valued as critical to the success of the team as a whole. Many of our team members comment after their first few months that Heffernan Painting is the most professional, high morale company they have ever worked for.

Heffernan Painting is a strongly team oriented organization that has historically had a steady flow of work year round for our permanent painters. After a probationary period, you may be eligible for several benefits and programs, which include:

  • Major Medical Insurance
  • 401K Retirement Plan
  • Profit Sharing
  • Paid Vacations
  • Weekly Paychecks
  • Overtime Pay

If interested in employment with Heffernan Painting:

APPLY ONLINE or DOWNLOAD APPLICATION. Be sure to carefully read and complete all application questions and requirements. Incomplete applications will not be considered. After review of your information and references, which takes approximately 5 working days, we may call you for a personal interview that will take approximately one hour.

Each team member is expected to have daily access to a vehicle in which to get to and from the job site each day. Our shop is located in Evanston and our worksites are primarily on Chicago's North Shore (Evanston, Wilmette, Skokie, Kenilworth, Winnetka, Glencoe, Highland Park, Lake Forest, Deerfield and Northbrook) but we often work in the city as well.

When a personal interview is arranged:

Arrive as you would for work - painters' whites are required, as are the tools of a professional painter fitting the job description applied for. Bring your valid driver's license, automobile insurance card and social security card.

After a successful interview, you may be made a conditional, at will offer of probationary employment that may be contingent upon your passing a drug test and a basic background investigation; both are kept confidential as required by law and common courtesy.

Your interest is greatly appreciated. We hope you see the value in Heffernan Painting's careful approach to pre-employment screening. Our goal is to provide a safe, congenial and productive work environment for all who make their careers with us.
